1) cats and dogs

2) I read this on a farmer forum:  soak cheap sponges in bacon grease.
 Cool.  Squeeze the sponges until they are flat.  Tear the sponges up
a bit.  Put in a rat bait spot (where rats and mice can get it and
cats and dogs cannot).  They eat the sponges, the sponges expand in
their stomachs and will not pass.  They die.

3) There are solutions for infestations featuring thousands of rats.
These seem to involve a 55 gallon drum with some water, some suspended
bait, and a rickety platform over the barrel.
