Rats & problems they may bring to the pond

Post by DaveB on Sat Mar 17, 2012 4:59 pm

I decided to renew the log effect cladding around the pond and to renew some pieces of decking whilst I am at it. On lifting the decking I found the remains of an old rats nest ( they had used the pipe lagging and next to the warm heating pipes to build their nest) Anyway I have not seen any since last year when I found two of them dead, shortly after next doors got the rat man in who layed the poisan down in their garden.

Snap,

When I lifted the Tarp covering from the plot we began digging the New Pond which contains all the Manholes we are not allowed to relocate ... there were several Rat tunnels under the tarp.

None have ever bothered the Koi Babes or Goldfish Pond Dave so I would not Fret Sweetie ..

We have Kitty Galore in this neighbourhood too Very Happy

I decided to invest in some `Humane` Rodent Traps in a bid to relocate the Rat population prior to concreting the tunnels they have dug under the tarpolin Very Happy

I Love and Appreciate Creatures of ALL kinds and would not want to harm any .... Very Happy

Mio Looks the buisness but what do you do with them once they are caught. Do they keep coming back?

Firstborn says he will release all those caught on common land around two miles away Very Happy and doubts they will return from there...

The Local population are likely to replace them quickly though ... but concreting their tunnels will make such less likely Dave ... and I`m not going to `worry` about that Sweetie Wink

They like all other creatures (us included) simply want to survive and thrive at all costs.
