squirrels and their cleverness

Posted: 05/11/2014 at 11:02

I also love squirrels ,in the Forrest not the garden, and yet i would love to see a red one in my garden, if we could get them back in number with very few grey it would be nice,

Hi Artjak,no remember you have turned  the outside  pipe only so the inside pipe square hole is now gone, just as Lyn says leave them open  just big enough for a rat to get in  ,and they get through very very tiny holes,and the farmers stores are the best for rat poison,Neosorexa is the one ,obviosly Lyns done it all before.

Hi ,to kill the rats and not other wildlife,simply take  a 12 inch piece of plastic drain pipe about 3/4 inches dia, cut a 2inch square  in the middle,place this inside a  12 inch piece of drain pipe slightly larger   than the first also with the same  hole cut in it ,line the holes up, inset the bait and twist the outside pipe to cover the hole,place the pipes into position and put a brick/weight on it to secure it ,,  very rarely do the rats die in the pipe but if so simply tip the pipe into dustbin and empty without touching or even seeing, cats /dogs cant get in ,all you have to do is make the pipes not to big, easy and its worked on the allotments for a long ,long time, and the never needs replacing. easy and clean.

Hostafan1  Hi,how long do I leave it till i have a peak to see if any roots,and how long did you leave it before it was ok to move the new one, many thanks for that I find it so much better when someone has actually done it on here,

A "how much?!!?" moment.....

Tootles,we find more garden stuff at the auctions ,were at our local one in Norwich,on Monday looking at a mix of planters,statues, garden burners and the like even good stuff dont cost anywhere near the prices you mentioned,get on line and find the ones near you ,log on and see whats up at the next one there doing ,give em a call and ask what bids they already have on the item if they have one  and either go or put a bid in on the phone ,saves you actually driving there although the buzz of the auctions is brill, dont be afraid to give it a go,but you might get hooked we did, good luck Toot
