Default Simple, cheap, mosquito trap

OK, just ran across this too. Simple, cheap, and supposedly very effective. Anyway, figure it's worth a shot if you're plagued with skeeters.

The local predators seem to keep them well in check, but my neighbor keeps chickens...

I actually have several things for rats. Homemade, of course, and won't cost much to make, possibly nothing depending on what you have laying around. Thing is, I know how to make them, but take too long to explain, so will have to do some checking, and get back to you with photos, and explanation of the photos, and some fine details that most of the sites just pass over.

The Brits now, they hunt rats at night with repeater .177 air rifles (a magazine fed rifle is pretty much mandatory, too hard to reload one round at a time in the dark), night sights (either bought [not cheap], or made from a remoded digital camera - there are instructions for that on-line, I'll dig some out), low power scope, and often a suppressor (the correct term, silencers are for the movies, and easily obtained in GB). I've often wanted to rat hunt at night, but don't know of anywhere around here to do it. I just happen to have a digital camera that works, except for the flash.

I'll try to get back to you in a day or two. If I take longer, PM me and remind me.

Oh yes, I have seen air gun suppressors for sale in the US. I am pretty sure they would be considered illegal, because they are not attached to anything, so would be considered possible to put on a .22 rifle, which would be illegal big time without the proper paperwork, and $200, first. There are some air rifles that were manufactured with a built on suppressor, and they are completely legal as is, because you would have to cut them off to remove them, and they would then be useless for attaching to anything else. Not tried any of these, partly because all I know of are on break barrel cocking, and I do not like those at all.

I'll post some rat hunting videos too.
