Now the scratching in the walls has stopped.

That first one tripped a pretty good sized trap. Maybe the rest of them have just stopped scratching? frown

Good job. I detest those vermin more than any other. When they've been educated, they can be some of the hardest to catch too, so it's good you got them whacked right away.

I take the pic with camera and save to my desktop in Ifanview.
That program has a tool called "auto adjust colors".

If there is a big white background I do not want to include that in the balance. So if there is something dark, I can just draw a box around it and adjust the color [brightness too] inside the box. It can act like night vision for pictures. If I had not done it, the rat would be just a dark shadow. If I do it, you can see features like eyes.

The first one I caught in my bedroom while I was trying to sleep. I realized now that people who seem nuts walking around stressed out with a gun and a club saying that rats are keeping them awake, are actually responding correctly to the situation.
I got 4 rats in 3 days, and now no rat activity for a couple days and have now caught up on my sleep.

I would bet that if there are presently more, they have figured out that 'you' are a bad thing, something to be avoided. I can recall as a kid trying to catch a rat or several which lived in a building we housed poultry in. Somehow they managed to avoid my initial attempts at catching and later poisoning them. When I finally did manage to catch the old matriarch/patriarch in a blind set some time later, one of its legs had scarring from having previously being pinched along its length. One wouldn't think a rodent would have the intelligence of a canine, but they sure seem to learn well when their life is on the line.
