Mice

Posted: 20/11/2012 at 12:49

mice are nice long as they don't come inside,if they do they will chew wiring ,eat your food  ,leave mustie smell and spread disease.In the garden they will eat your peas and beans or sun flower seeds that are left in your greenhouse or shed.As toT rapping them LIVE you will have to go along way to deter them coming back and there is always more.A cat will keep numbers down and keeping seed and bird food away from the house.

Cat allergies

lilies are very poisonous to cats so they must never go near day lilies or Madonna lilies .also to point out plants that are like grass (spider plant in particular) beware that cats will  eat this then get the stem or long leaf stuck in their throat as my cat did and had to have a op.

more than likely some seeds from your cooking have got inside your hob and decided its the right environment.but it could be bind weed which grows anywhere,or have you accidentally let some bird seed drop inside the hob,a mystery.

best way to get rid of rats

Posted: 18/11/2012 at 14:25

a rat catcher told me once chopped up glass in choc is the best way  to get rid of them but it still leaves the risk of other animals getting it.poisons are very difficult to keep away from cats and dogs.you have to kill these creatures as in numbers they can  cause havoc and come into your home.

I ride on the Mendips all the time and have done done so for twenty five years ,I have ridden since I was nine.the best gift I ever had.But alas although I ride out with a friend we hire the two horses out(on our own) but as being nurses we never had the time to care for them ,although I would of liked.The horse in the picture is Barry and he died  a year ago,he was a horse I had helping at the RD.A I knew his good and bad habits and often the only one who could handle him.I love your picture ,you are very lucky,hope you have good places to ride.
