We are never more then six feet from a rat.....we are told. Well that is certainly true as to when I am down on my allotment.
They trouble me no end and today I found out that they had been at my apples that I had stored in my shed.
I cleared the shed out and found that they had chewed a whole through the wall of the shed. I blocked this up and stored my apples in a barrel that I am sure the rats cannot get in.
I am pleased to say that since the 1st of January 2016 I have killed 52 rats.
I do this by setting traps every time I go down there. I use peanut butter as a bait. I know that I will never get them all but at least I have got 52!
