Posted: 09/11/2014 at 09:46

Hi Chris, we have just moved into a new village, the lawns were ok but dull and patchy,luckily we have 2 patches of Comfry growing ,I watered 4 different parts of the lawn with 8 to 1 Comfry ,6 weeks and the lawns i watered grew completely different from the unwatered parts, they were bright strong and dark green , we have now all the lawn in good shape ,I haven't watered again but will in spring all Free,and then  check for any other treatment,hope this helps.

perhaps on a farm cats are expected to ern there living so hungry enough or with a litter to feed a cat just might go for it, Question Dove ,ex farm girl, do cats on a farm ever group up for a kill as some wild cats do.just a thought. dim erein,

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.
