I want my $7 back

Lately we have been having some problems with a creature living under our house. We can't find any way that it might have gotten down there and have not seen it. (We've only seen remains and signs that it has been there) I don't enjoy hearing scratching noises near my bedroom heating vent. Would you? I tried a simple mouse trap baited with peanut butter only to have it go off and not catch anything. So this time I wanted something bigger.

I bought a beefy RAT trap this past weekend for $7.00. This thing was pretty big and hefty too. Ya know, like the ones the pros use. I set the trap on Saturday afternoon. I Checked the trap Sunday afternoon only to find it missing. What? Missing? That is disturbing. This thing has got to be large! K mr. Rat or what ever you are. I want my $7.00 back.

The worst part is that I couldn't find the trap and I haven't heard any scratching noises since. I am worried we are going to get a smell or something in the near future. What should I do?

that's a little creepy. Search the crawl space? I'm sure you've already done that. I guess if you start smelling something funny, you know you have a problem!

I guess you could call a pro and ask them what you should do - or have them go look for it!
