    Can anyone tell me where I can find effective rat poison? I've tried the stuff they sell at Lee's / Hypermart. Doesn't seem to have any impact. It's for a fenced-in area. No kids or pets, so safety isn't an issue. Just want something that will actually kill the rats. I don't mind them passing through and eating what suits them. But they like using the tin roof overhang as a mosh pit, and that annoys me.

    Have you considered rat traps? Some of the hardware stores in Duma sell them.

    Thanks clear copy and Knowdafish. But I prefer rats over cats, since noise is the only issue for me. And traps mean disposal duty. I'm lazy, so would really prefer poison.

    I have used the rat poison from Hyper mart, It worked good for me, but the most important thing to keep in mind is, that you must wash your hands good before you touch the poison or wrapper. If they smell human odor they normally won't eat it.
    Hope this helps.

    I never got around to trying any of those poisons. For whatever reasons, the rats haven't been back the last 2 weeks.
