Thanks for your advice, Nic, it’s very much appreciated.

I’ve filled the outside and inside dishes and scattered food as well, tonight.

I see what you mean about black or brown rats! I looked into it and confused myself!

I also read that cotton wool balls soaked in lavender oil can repel rats, but do you know if this would upset my hog(s), please? I would just grow lavender but my yard doesn’t get enough sun.

Thanks again!
