Rats – eeergh I hate them but living in the country I am bound to get them coming into my garden. What is happening at the moment is a mystery that even Jonathan Creek would struggle to solve – so HELP – can anyone tell me where I am going wrong or what is going on? I have a rate cage, the door slides up and is secured by a level on the side the aim being that the bait is placed on a floating tray that tilts backwards, once the rat starts taking the bait the weight moves the tray forward and down shutting the door with it. Every night I bait the tray and set the securing lever as deleciate as possible. Every (frustrating) morning what do I find, not a smidgeon of bait left, no rat inside and door shut! I simply cannot fathom this out. I have even added weight to the door to make is shut quicker, no joy. Has anyone else had this problem and PLEASE can anyone help? I know rats are clever but I cannot imagine one holding the door open whilst the other feeds (ha ha) but this problem is beyong me and I am starting to tear my hair out. So please help me fellow members, and thank you.
