Asked December 15, 2014, 7:01 AM EST
My car is parked in a car port.We did trap two in my attic last summer, but no evidence of any more after repairs were made around chimney. I believe they are Marsh Rats. I am trying to find some effective means of prevention,as all the popular methods do not work or are dangerous to other animals( moth balls, peppermint, ultrasonic equipment. Can you offer any suggestions?
