I finished off clearing the last section of garden yesterday and then emptied most of the compost bin over the cleared soil. Look at these little darlings hard at work.
And now onto less pleasant matters – the rats. It’s inevitable really, you have hens and hen food and at some point you’re gonna get rats visiting. Look at the damage they’ve done to my beautful barn door
Oh, and they’d chewed their way in through the door on the other end of the barn too (see their hole just below the hinge?)
According to Jon rat poison isn’t the answer, although I’d offer them some on a silver platter.
He is talking about pumping exhaust fumes down the holes to flush them out and then shooting them as they exit. He’s also talked about putting the ferrrets down there or stuffing the holes with ferret poo.
Seems to me there’s a whole lot of talking going on whilst muggins here is still keeping them in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed.
