Chicken-House Problem

Asked April 16, 2013, 5:44 AM EDT

I know chickens attract mice and rats. I have used bait with some good results but want to do more. What might also work in a four-season climate at 2500 ft., under my concrete-floored building?

Generally it's the chicken feed and opportunity for a warm home that attract rats and mice. Make sure your feed is securely stored in rodent-proof containers (I prefer aluminum trash cans). I'd need to speak with you a little more to make sure I understand your situation properly. Please feel free to contact our office at 828-884-3109 or email me at bart_renner@ncsu.edu, and we'll chat about the details. Thanks!
