We have some furry visitors.
While pain in the butt daughter has been away at Uni she has been keeping the hamster that we never wanted her to have ( She's 20 God Dammit ) in a cage inside a largish wooden shed.

She's been to the shed today and we have rats. Some holes have appeared, along with rat droppings and they have started on the bag of hammy food.

I've just been around the holding rebating my permanent bait stations with poison and there will be four Fenn traps inside the shed tonight.
With a bit of luck there will be photographic evdence tomorrow for the ghouls amongst us.

Traps set and waiting.
Might not catch tonight though because they tend to be a little bit wary of new objects

There`s an understatement,Rats are Neophobic and will actively avoid anything new in their territory.

Give it a few weks before you stop or your wasting your time.

I presume your using Fenn 4`s or similar??

I posted this piccie a few weeks ago before you joined but here it is again.



I set the traps in the full knowledge that they would avoid them at first, but as soon as they start to take them as part of the scenery it will be Bingo !
Havent checked them yet this morning but as I said, I don't expect instant results.

Monday morning. No rats.
