oh dont get me going on the Rat ,My daughter is having problems with her Rat invasion due to the fact the of her chickens,even if the food is in metal container they come for the left overs ,and in my garden the Rat s come for anything edible ,bird seed to compost rubbish,that's why you have to be careful what you put out and leave out. the rats are getting resistant to the poison due to the bird food,( and has to be carefully controlled by the rodent man) and if you seen one rat you have a hundred,they don't come in singles.plus the problem I have is my neighbour will keep leaving off drain covers.you will never get get rid of them completely but they need to be kept in check.

What is your council on? a pond is no more a hazard than anything else.You will need to change the water frequently (other wise it will go stagnant) or a pump.
