Evening all, I've got a rat infestation. My neighbors have started to complain about it now. We always knew we had one in the garden when we moved in here first and we never really worried too much about it as we didn't see very much of it. We do feed the birds in our garden, and we put a stop to that as that will attract the rats. We've bought a humane rat trap, we would have caught two, but when Mrs realized the first one was a young one she got all soft about it and let it out ! We caught another one the following day so found a field to release it in. Whilst they mean us no harm, they are vermin and we do look after dogs for people and I'd hate for a dog in our care or one of us to catch limes disease. I know she'd like to avoid killing them, but I'm not so fussy.
