Tree Rat Control

Tree rats ate all my pears. Now they are eating all my tomatoes . They seem to know their way around and avoid my traps. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Can anyone help with a suggestion. What works for you? I am in west Georgia

There were many suggestions in this Tree Rat thread started in March. The problem is widespread. You might find some of the solutions offered there helpful.

Thank you very much. I found the thread helpful. Tried several of the suggestions and some worked. But there are yet more rats.

Multipronged offensive/defensive effort required.
Firearms/air rifle, etc.
Kania squirrel traps.
Big Bucket 'o Death.

And, while some have called it into question, and actually may have proven it to be ineffective, peanut butter/plaster-of-Paris bonbons have worked for me in the past - with regard to stopping pilfering of pecan/hickory/walnut seednuts and acorns from nursery beds/pots… distribution of the ‘bonbons’ resulted in immediate cessation of depredation - but I never saw a dead tree rat.
