Baby rats in compost bin

I'll be as gentle as I can....I'm afraid sentiment is misplaced when dealing with rats, they are vermin and should be treated as such.

A smart blow with the back of your spade would be (for me) the right thing to do.

PS. I agree with setting spiders free.

Your pH level (pH = acidity or alkalinity) can be adjusted by using lime or potash. I feel that the insignificant amount of potash present in wood ash wouldn't make much difference. I think applying lime at the rate of about 1.1/2lbs per  sq yd would be required.

Having said that, lime is better applied in late winter, not now.
