A 20 gallon galvanized trash can with a lid is only $28 us, I cant imagine them costing much more in Aus. Add a bungee cord, and you have a rat proof container that will hold 70 kilos of food.

You cant have a cat, dont want pioson, wont use traps, and claim you cant afford a rat proof trashcan. Like the above poster said you have eliminated all the solutions and not much else we can do for you.

Well in australia its $42 for 55L and it will hold 25kg. Things are more expensive here.

When did I say I wont use traps? All I was asking was if there were friendlier ways anyone might have found to deal with it.

I do realise steel is the most ideal way to go about keeping it all away, but I.cant afford to go out and drop $250 on it right this second. Its something that I am saving for but I have other bills that also need to be paid.
I would have bought steel in the first place if it was something I could afford.

Joe4d, you never had to keep replying saying the same thing every time.
