Home Forums Champions’ chat Rats! Reply To: Rats!


Thank you all for replying with advice. I would never use poison, but what I have done is removed all bird tables and dug out all the seed that’s fallen underneath. My husband is putting slabs to rest the table on so we can sweep it up. The birds are missing out at the moment! I’ve also removed and emptied compost bins, and moved my stacked empty pots which were nearby. Apparently rats don’t like change (there’s a word for it!) Have been thinking maybe I’ve been putting too much bird seed out. I can’t stop feeding the hhs, they’re juveniles.
