    Rats

    We have been feeding the birds on a reqular basis and now it seems all the food has attracted rats. These past two days, I have seen both parents and four baby ones running around in the back garden. I have ordered cages to trap them. Anyone know what I can do with them after they have been trapped? I dont want to kill them.

    You should kill them, otherwise some one will kill you if they see you letting live rats go near their house!!!!

    I stopped feeding the birds for the same reason.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    I thought the same about my CAT when we had a field mouse move in (when I lived at home). My dad awoke for work at 4:00am to find the CAT sharing his food and milk with the little critter. Needless to say my next treatment for the problem caught him.
    Its a jam thing

    Just be a man and squash the buggers. Get a trap that kills them in the first place and you won't need to worry about it, just bin them.

    I have removed all the bird feeders in the garden and cleaned up all the food left on the gorund.

    I have thought about poisoning the rats, but if you have a sister who studied animal care for a couple of years and is also an animal lover, it is difficult to do it. She will never speak to me again
