How can I get rid of rats?
Since I've been told by my local feed store that the EPA no longer will let them sell rat poisoning, what can I use to get rid of them? I've set traps but I'd like to do more.

Rat baits are still available. Some of the formulations have changed. You may need to go to another supplier.
Basic things to help reduce rodent problems include:
- keeping tight lids on feed bunks and bins
- not spilling feed on the ground and cleaning up feed spills
- making sure feed troughs do not have holes where feed can be falling onto the ground
