We have a rat problem here. Any car thats parked overnight gets nests built in it and the wiring eaten. A couple weeks ago I began a routine of sitting outside in a comfy chair with a loaded Pellet gun. I shot 10 rats in 4 days. Didn't see or hear any more. Today about 3p I saw one run across the porch and into an old Car my dad has. This is what I found when I lifted the hood. Car is basically ruined. So about 6p I went out, sat in my chair and waited. I could hear him under the hood so I proped it open slightly. Then he jumped out and ran to my Jeep then jumped up into it. I shot but missed a moving rat. I could hear him eating the plastic coating on the wiring. I started the Jeep and saw him run back under the car. I waited and listened. It started to get pretty dark so my chances of getting him were getting worse by the minute. He was standing on the fan shroud and stuck his head up. Big mistake on his part! The result.
