That's useful. Here in NYC we have recurring rat problems and there  
is no end to that.
In CA some neighbors told me to put juicy fruit gum in the ground  
squirrel holes and it would clog up their digestive tract.
There were too many of them so I just planted more than i needed.  I  
had the room.
Thanks for the tip,
