The weather is turning, natural food is more difficult to find. Rats will be looking for winter quarters.

There are a number of easy steps you can take to reduce the risk of them moving in with you!

Make sure all doors and windows shut and fit properly. this applies to sheds and outbuildings as well.

Ensure all climbing plants are cut back to at least 45 cm below gutter height.

Do not over feed birds in your garden, remove it at night if necessary.

Place your compost bin over narrow gauge wire, this will stop the rats digging into it but allow it to “compost.”

Keep pet/bird food in metal dustbins to prevent access by rodents.

Good house keeping is essential.
