Hi PamSue

It’s good to hear the hog is making use of the hog house again. Sorry to hear about the rats – it would be interesting to know if the mint makes any difference to them. I had a couple here but I took the bowls out of the feed boxes and left them outside covered by the top of one of those mini greenhouses with plastic over the top. Interestingly since then, although one rat has been seen going into one of the feeding boxes, it didn’t go to the actual food. So, maybe it was suspicious of the structure around the food. They do say some rats don’t like things being moved around.

The only problem is that next I’ll probably get cats again – and they never seem to be around when the rats are!

Let us know if the mint works.
