They don't do you any good. In fact, they are dangerous pests. They are very fond of corn. You have a lot of it this year, but have you more than you want? Are you willing to donate several bushels to rats and mice? If not, make sure now that you have rat-proof storage for all you will soon harvest. Do you need more storage capacity than you now have? May we help you plan it or figure your bill of material when ready, or both? We have a splendid line of crib materials and can tell you quickly what you need for your crib job. Glad to tell you how to rat-proof an old crib. It isn't much of a job nor is it expensive. It will go a long way toward helping you get rid of rats. F. S.
