Plain ole Victor trap. Put it in the garden. Bait without setting so the little bastard gets used to taking the bait without a problem. Takes a couple nights 3-4......do this till the bait consistently is gone in the morning. Then the last night bait and load the trap. I use Slim Jim’s.....it’s like rat crack. You can push it onto the little spike on the bait platform and it is impossible to take without springing the trap. 

Buh bye rat......

as an added measure wash the trap to get human scent off and when you bait and set use rudder gloves....that said the rat is more interested if fruit off the plant at this point...trap placement is important too

A season or so ago, I live trapped 72 squirrels......yes 72......over the course of about 3 months off my back wall adjacent to my avocado tree. (filthy little rats with tails). Since I am pretty much a wuss when it comes to "disposal" and even knowing the laws against relocation, I drove them over the bridge into a huge open area and let them go. Pretty sure the hawks loved me. Mrs PB was sure we had repeat offenders, so I spray painted a series of them with a big orange splotch on their side to see if I got any "do overs". Not one. I'm pretty sure the hawks enjoyed the easy to spot treats though.............

I have no moral objections to doing in the bushy tailed rats. I just don't have it in me. If I had a neighbor willing to do the dirty deed, I'd gladly hand em over. The release thing is a little inconvenient but it works for me.

Worst live trap experience of my life was after catching a skunk instead of the raccoons I was trying to deal with. There’s just no clear winner in that battle.

It would’ve been hilarious for everyone except me on YouTube. Thankfully, my impromptu outfit held up (old worn out Gill drysuit, plastic face shield, rubber gloves, and duct tape).  Unfortunately, the little shit went bonkers in the back of my truck. That smell lasted a LONG time. The other problem was that I had to suit back up to let little Pepe LePieu out. I must have touched something because the smell was on my hands for days. 

Try enjoying any food when your hands smell like skunk.

In the summer I keep a 55gal barrel of water next to the "live" trap. With skunks you just approach the closed end of the trap and sploosh into the barrel. There's usually a little oil slick but not too bad. 

Winter is more problematic, gotta choot em. It lingers until summer.

Those things work so well. 

I wish the problem in my strawberry patch was the bunnies all over the place, because I can combat bunnies with the dog or that sprinkler. But my problem is that my strawberry plants themselves are jerks, and the raspberry bush is a total fucking asshole.

They grow like mad, lush green leaves, they spread all over the place. And the strawberries make little flowers and tiny fruit, but they won't get big. The raspberry plant won't even flower, it just keep taking over turf but it won't put out with some fruit. I give the soil all the phosphate that is supposedly needs, I water a lot, they get enough sun, still ... nada. I think the plants themselves are fucking with me.

In 2nd grade in northern Virginia 1956 my best friend and I were eating lunch and I asked him what was in his sandwich...he answered squirrel I shot it in the woods yesterday afternoon with my .22 rifle....there are probably still plenty on squirrels in Vienna,Va but no more woods....

One should always tie the sticky glue trap to something solid.  We had a trap go missing in the tool crib at work, when the critter done dragged it off to God knows where.  Now, I always punch a hole in the cardboard and Ty-Rap it to a pipe or something.  And, instead of "smashing them to death",  I just drop the glue trap, mouse side down into a toilet, and "wash" them.  After a few minutes of immersion, it is safe to release them anywhere!!

Thiols produced by modified anal glands are the culprit, so closer to rotten eggs mixed with vomit and diarrhea. Multiplied by 1000. It's the smell produced by rotting flesh, tainted food, feces, etc. Basically, all the things your brain evolved to have you avoid. Once you've smelled it, you'll never forget it.

If it's right near you, it's bad. But if it's drifting in the night air, from far off, it has an appealing, musky kind of smell. 

When it sprays from close up, it's that same musky smell, but it overpowers. It's not the smell of anything rotten, it's the smell of a passionate animal, but overloading the circuits. It seems to trigger a response of millions of years, "you ain't getting laid tonight, caveman."

Unlike many trash pandas, or rabbits, or squirrels, or coyotes, the skunk is a noble little creature. They respect human boundaries, they defend themselves, but avoid confrontation. They even evolved that blaze of white, they apparently haven't needed to worry much about predation for a long time.

my akita got sprayed one night when I was walking him off leash late one night, he cornered it by someone's front door,  I bet they had to move..  anyway, everytime I bathed him for about 3 years you'd get a whiff ..    threw his collar away when I got home..

One of my stations which was overrun with mice at certain times of the year discovered you could launch mice with a potato gun.......mousetranauts they called them........thank goodness the squirrels were too big to fit. The lady who took notice of the pastime was not impressed.

Raccoons are among NA’s greatest animals together with panthers, bears, wolves, wolverines, bison and domestic cats.  They should not be trapped or killed due to ineptitude in protecting ones strawberries.

Lost a cat a while back, and I thought it was an owl that got him... he loved laying out on out patio table at night...  Wife and FIL swear it was a coyote "cus there are no owls in our area..." I say no way the coyote could get over our fence unless of course there was a coyote Olympic high jumping event... and that cat would have been on the roof in seconds flat the minute he heard the nosie.

A month of so later the wife and I are sitting in the back yard enjoying a bottle of Rodney Strong Zinfendel when this big old boy of an owl comes swooping right over our heads... we  wouldn't have know it we wern't looking up at the time...   Wife looks over and comments "in the 20 years I have known you for once you get it right...

1st time I saw one close up Mrs PB and I were walking across Northern England on the coast to coast trail. We stayed an extra day in Grasmere (wanted to see Wordsworth's grave etc) and we rode the bus down to Windermere where there is a big waterfront park. Sitting in the park was some guy with several owls on display, not in cages but sitting on perches. I don't know what organization he was affiliated with but it was obviously a formal nature education outreach sort of thing (as a opposed to some nut job with a couple birds). It seemed intended to convince the locals that those birds were an important part of the ecosystem and stop shooting/hunting them as pests. Anyway Mrs PB held one (a pretty small one) and we got quite a close look. Amazing....and slightly intimidating...critters. I can see why they are portrayed as "wise old owls". This little dude had some shit going on in his little brain.

Nope - not a trash panda, a frigging jumpy kind of rat critter that hates poison, cheese, peanut butter and slimjims. My new plan is to cut all of the strawberries off the plants and bait the trap with the last remaining juicy red remnant.
