Ant problems

Dangers of antifreeze to pets & other animals

I seen posters in my area saying about this problem of trying to poison animals.Its not just cats they are trying to poison.I am afraid there are people out there who have very warped minds.One day their cruelty will back on them.

Companions in the wildlife garden

I have a lot of wildlife too in my area which is Bristol.Not only foxes,badgers,squirrels,rats,mice,frogs,newts the list could go on including deer! The birds we get are amazing even Herons and buzzards.For a city its pretty amazing how it all survives.I lived in the country and I did not see half as much.I still go to the country every week and on horseback I get close to the deer and their young as they don't see  me as threat.We need all wildlife,we are the intruders ,not them.I find great joy from watching those special moments.
