i'm dealing with some sort of rodent in my jeep right now. i have the top and doors off, and have a metal tuffy liner covering the tailgate. i noticed the first signs of a rodent yesterday, a few pieces of what looks like rat poop, when i opened the tailgate to grab my jacket out of the back. so last night i put one of those d-con bait chunks (approx. 1.5 inch green cube) on top of the rear wheel well. it's outside the tuffy liner, but near a small gap in the liner so i figure the rat could get out and eat it assuming it is hiding in the tailgate somewhere.
this morning the bait was gone. i couldn't find it anywhere, except for a few small green crumbs where i left the bait the night before. i figure this is a good sign, so i hop in the jeep and head to work. a few miles down the freeway, traffic breaks up so i accelerate to about 70 mph and suddenly feel something drop into my lap. i look down and there it is, the half eaten green bait chunk. the rat must have dragged it up the rear downtube of the roll cage, over the top of the cage and then sat on top of my drivers side sun visor munching away at the poison. when i built up enough speed, the wind must have pushed the poison off the sun visor and into my lap. WTH? that's a lot of work just to eat some poison. anyway, i hope that's the end of it.
