rat problem

Hello everybody,
Can you please share your advise in how can I get rid of a rat that is in my backyard? I suspect there should be more than one and it bothers me to think about it, but what bothers me the most is that recently the rat crosses by my yard even when we are near by, and it is so disgusting and scary. Thanks in advance.

  • funtimes101: See if you can find where they are getting in. Then get something like chicken wire and stuff it in the hole, then fill the hole with cement. If they gnawed through wood, cover the place with metal sheeting and fill around it with or cement (if you buy...

    funtimes101: See if you can find where they are getting in. Then get something like chicken wire and stuff it in the hole, then fill the hole with cement. If they gnawed through wood, cover the place with metal sheeting and fill around it with or cement (if you buy a bag of vinyl cement you can just make a small amount and keep the rest in a dry place.) Then spray the area with bad cologne (you can buy a bottle at Dollar Tree for a buck). You want to stop them from getting in.

    Good luck.

  • Break up some glass as fine as possible and mix it into the cement. If they eat through the cement the glass will kill them.

Six Corner's Portage Park

Anyone know if they are still building Aldi, Binny's, Starbucks, etc? There's so much potential for this intersection and neighborhood, why does it still look like an ghost town?

The Point at Six Corners

Building torn down almost a year ago... Not only an eyesore but a safety hazard in my opinion. If work erecting a new building wasn't prepared to start immediately then the old building shouldn't have been torn down yet.

    Just wait.. Sears building going up for sale. If no sale, another building to be demolished,

Now what's the problem with Starbuck's Six Corners?

Hi all - just saw this note in DNA Info -

A separate proposal to build a Starbucks drive-thru in the Six Corners Shopping District was also due to come before the board on Friday, but that decision was delayed until July due to "issues about landscaping," according to a spokesman for Ald. John Arena (45th).

I keep hearing that the other SB was approved for Irving Park and Central but I was wondering what happened with the one planned for Six Corners - now delayed until July? Jeez, enough already....

    I'm hoping they break ground soon! They just got a nitro pour coffee that is unbelievably good.

  • I wanna get half gallons of vodka at Bunny's because they have great sales. Hurry up!!
