*Shiver* Rats are one thing I can't stand. Some people around here feel that squirrels are just rats with bushy tails, but I'll take them, anyday.

*ugh.. almost vomits*
I have squirrels, a lot of them. I hate them. they have effectively ruined any chance of me having a bird feeder of ANY FREAKING KIND even the squirrel proof ones. You just reminded me of how much I hate squirmy little critters

Personally, rats don't bother me. I think they're cute. But one way to get rid of them, I've heard, is to put mothballs around your perimeter. (This may drive away birds as well, though.) You might also call your local animal control to see if they have live animal traps.

I've had those things in my old house. We lived right next door to an old feed store. You could just see them running in and out of the old grain storage bins.

Jan, I understand why you had to stop feeding the birds (!) but at the same time, that guy is pretty cute. That's a good wildlife picture!
