"Bucket traps" work well for meeses etc,no reason they wouldn't work for rats,although you might want to go to a larger container if your rats are"huge"

Well, JDK, I can't speak for Kelly, but I am glad you showed us how it's done. Why didn't I think of this. If word of this gets out people are going to beat a path to your door. Has something to do with inventing a better mouse trap. Forgive the humor. Thanks......gfp

These been around for yrs in sheds,feedmills etc,basically 24/7 low maintenence things.Oh a couple spoons of corn oil floated on the water keeps em from evaporating too.I've even seen a small oblong stocktank setup with 3 sets of rollers and ramps,that was a dry one,the cats cleaned it out daily :)
