Rats. There seems to be a lot of these around lately, has anyone noticed? It's almost like the beginning of a horror movie in our Hood. The neighbors found rats under the hood of their vehicles camping there. I guess there's no room over the back fence where there is a camp of another sort. These neighbors have set traps around, be careful in doing this as there are other animals walking around also. The Other neighbors next property over said their gardeners will trim the Magnolia trees so rats cannot access the 2nd floor of the building next where they live, the "Rats" are really bad this year. But the gardeners haven't started trimming yet doubt they will, most likely want more money. They also have avocado trees in back, rats have been dining on those for years. I saw one early last evening running up the driveway passed me. I'm hoping that Joey is enjoying his retirement years and stays away from those boogers this year though. I think he bought one in may have to invest in another Zapper as I loaned one out and it's in use. Rats may not have much to do with crime until you go and start your car and cannot because they ate through the wires. They can do alot of damage to your vehicle, when getting a vehicle insured see if you can insure it against rats because they can cause all kinds of problems from electrical shorts in the system to vehicle fires.

I would like to know if others are noticing more rats around their homes? Vehicles? Around town?  Lettuce know. I have been eating better foods and need advice about breads and crackers which I am highly addicted to. What kind of bread does a diabetic eat. I love turkey sandwiches but most bread has sugar. I think there might be some possibilities at Trader Joes not sure. I have been using Multigrain Fiber bread but there is still 2 grams of sugar in each slice anyway crackers Wasa Multigrain from Tri-County Produce are good though without teeth hard to chew I'm getting there. My new Neighbor Tanya made me Tofu Scrambler with cactus the other day Good Stuff. I Love Tofu.  I miss having the Milpas Food Coop and Follow your Heart on Milpas. I cannot wait for Sprouts to open I hope it's before Thanksgiving. Anyway here are your Scanner Reports.

Rats, they are forever. What really interests me are the squirrels that are all over on the Westside since the Thomas fire. They battle the rats for what falls below my outdoor bird feeders, and provide endless entertainment for my cats. I never once saw a squirrel over here in Valerio Canyon until the Thomas fire chased them down out of the mountains.

Rats? Oh, lot's of them. I have six traps set up in our backyard and the current "kill" total this year is up to 68. I usually find an average of two or three in these "Jaws of Death" every few days. We have an ivy and bottlebrush hedge in the backyard and we have a neighbor up the street with an avocado orchard, so they have plenty of shelter and food available. Plus one of out neighbors used to throw peanuts out in her yard for the birds but it seemed like the rats got most of them - when I went to look for something in a side yard storage shed last year, there was a huge pile of hundreds of shells around a feces and urine soaked nest one had built inside. Some also ripped a lot of insulation off our furnace room to build nests with. They decimated my tomatoes last year but since I've been diligent with baiting and resetting the six traps this year, the damage has been limited to just a few lost (half-eaten) tomatoes and parsley plants. Our neighbors tell us that they have problems with them, too. Nothing seems to be done by the city, so it's up to you to keep them (somewhat) under control.

Rats? Of course. It's that time of the year. The ones that come into your house are Roof (or Black) rats. The ones that hang outside and dine on your veggie garden are Packrats (aka Woodrats).
The Packrats are eating our Yellow bell peppers right now, but it's hard to begrudge them that, since those peppers certainly are delicious and we planted extra this year so we could share. *******Roger: Make sure you eat only organic tofu. Soy is at the top of the list for genetically modified foods and that means that regular tofu isn't healthy for you (full of pesticides). ***The tip for sourdough bread is a great tip.***I sure miss Vior's. (And Roy Vior. Such a wonderful human being.) Oh----and a RatZapper is the way to go if you're battling indoor rats. Peanut butter is the bait. We hate hate HATE to kill things, but rats are not welcome in our house. We leave the outdoor rats be. They have predators to deal with outside.

I told the neighbors about feeding the wildlife but I don't think that will stop of course I have done it too....We don't do bird seed anymore.. then again we have 9 avocado trees around us and a bakery. To bad it's not a pot bakery I'd be in the dumpster with the rats. The rains might have had something to do with it for all I know Thank You for your comments.

Yes, we saw one running along our side wall during the daytime; I think it was going towards the neighbor's peach tree. The rat looked rather plump and healthy, and appeared to be a male.

I was keeping bird feeders in the back yard, as I have done for may springs, but the rats started coming so needless to say I had to stop feeding the wildlife. Been doing the Monarch thing instead, much cleaner!

The best bread for someone with blood sugar issues is sourdough. Something about the sourdough ingredient that is different than other bread makes it slower to digest, which helps avoid a blood sugar spike.

Yeah, I've noticed all the rats and wrote City Council to STOP issuing permits to restaurants to allow outside dining . When staffers wipe tables clean it drops onto the sidewalks and left there . Then rodents eat the food and breed and mutiply & whatever happen to those no smoking signs the Council said would be installed throughout State Street, by the Wharf and the beach ? Nothing that's what .
