I had rats building nest in my grain drill, I scattered moth balls in the box, they built their nest on top of them, a friend told me to pour a gallon of diesel in the box for unwanted visitors, no more rats, spiders, or snakes

I had my camper on truck after pulling out of storage. Loading it in driveway and caught movement on top bunk. DANG! Had to be 15-20 field mice running all over the place! That was hoot trying to chase them out door! Finally hauled mattress out into driveway and they poured out of it.! Must have been apartment complex for them. Mattress never went back into truck!

I thought the moth balls would work. I hear they smell pretty bad, though I have never smelled them myself.

I ended up doing some small game hunting in the engine compartment of my F150 yesterday! I ended up using a shop vac as my weapon of choice. It was needed to vac out two little ones from the nest, as well as the few pounds of grass and what not from under the manifold. They did squeal a bit after the vac wand got a hold. 🤓
I set them aside in there own little nest and noted after a while, that they scooted off or other... cheers all
I'll rent you my Rat Terrier, could get messy, but he will sort them out.

Guarantee it we had a jack Russell a few years back . There wasn’t a chipmunk , mouse , rat , or snake safe on our place .

He actually cost me 1200 dollars one spring . We were in the building getting stuff ready to put out on porch and checking the mowing equipment out . And good ol max was running around chasing any mouse we flushed out to him . Well one of those little suckers ran up into the mower and I never gave it a second thought while max was after him until I saw the wiring harness completely destroyed . Yeah just so happened John Deere had quit making that harness and motor so I got to buy all new instead . In all honesty I never really liked that dog but it was my sons so I dealt with him , but he was good at killing unwanted vermin

We have a Rat and you're right on both accounts! I didn't think of it, thankfully. The last time she rooted something out, it was under the sauna. Next thing you know a snake is flying and she grabs it mid length and gives it a good shake. I found that the first bite nipped its' head clean off.

My son's lab was pretty good too but stubborn! If he chased a ground squirrel down hole, he would "excavate" till he got it! Landscape block be darned! Nothing stopped him except for Addison's Disease which was so sad to see him deteriorate overtime even with monthly $$$ shots. Dang, missed him dearly, he was my pal.

I bet that lab could move some dirt ! But I’d bet ya a donut that the old ladies Great Dane can get said target dug out faster . She loves chipmunks! She looks like a 375 CAT excavator after them just going to town
