Well appreciated is your effort to get rid of these uninvited guests.

A Rat Terrier can come into the picture too. They serve as biological predators and don't offset environmental conditions. Don't use this method if poison had been earlier administered.

Hate the puss? You can decide to hire a professional vermin controller.
