That stinks! My Father traps full time in the winter since he is retired. Rats have been wayyyyy off for long time around here in SE Indiana. Dad says the only place he can find rats is where there have been beavers for a while. He had to catch them in steel traps becuase the rats are using old beaver huts, and bank dens, and the holes are too big.

Up here in northern Laporte county, we have huts everywhere in the shallows on the lake.
