I have a serious problem with em, They have taken over a house trailer I own. it is covered in cypress and the boards go to the ground. they have busted water lines. I spent two full days crawling in the mud under a trailer with about two foot clearing replacing pex lines and fittings. it was a nightmare. They won't come out until night and you never know when that is. my dog hates em and lets me know when they are moving.
I was completely not prepared for the armored suckers. So I stayed there and let the dog tell me when they were moving, sometimes 10 at night and sometimes three in the morning. all I had was a 177 cal pellet gun with me. I shot one twice and it still ran off. so the dog and me spent a few nights hunting them. I did have an AR15 with me but that was out of the question to use. I finally figured out I was not prepared for this battle.
after I fixed all the water lines I came home and when I go back I will be ready. going to take a 22 revolver with 22 short ammo. Went and got a trap this morning, going to slide it under the house through a door I made to get under the trailer. Now I just need to find out what to bait em with. The war has begun.
