they are a problem.. live near railway line and always about and ruddy large ones too.
we use bait and air rifle.. take a shot and they dont come back for some time..
if you have composter then bang it every day as they dont like noise and leave it open to get rained on.. as they dont like it very wet either.
if you are on benefits you can get the rat trap man to come in and do it for free or for a fiver i neighbour had them in few years back and they trapped ours too.. said if you take out a colony it will take 3 years for them to build up again.
