Rats can be very persistent once a source of food has been identified and unfortunately most of the activity is during the hours of darkness when watching what is going on is near impossible. Do any of your neighbours have a Moggy which might be asked to do the night watch or are they all curled up on a nice warm sofa until spring finally arrives? :cat: :bolt: :mouse:
Never any food out there when darkness falls. I feed as and when during the day and then early brekkies. This appears to be a diurnal rodent :(.
Moggies ?!?!?!?!?! Knee-deep in the ***** things thanks to The Cat House across the road. Not a sight of any of them (4 at last count, but maybe they got a new one for Christmas :rolleyes:)yesterday.

AND I was let down by Santa again when I re-ordered my standing order for a deluxe 12-bore with scopiscopic sights :shrug:.

The only redeeming feature of Moggies is their ability to control vermin. Unfortunately they cannot distinguish between what is vermin and what isn't hence their nuisance value in our gardens. :(
