Hi Wildlife gardener 123 have you ever been troubled with rats.
i have a dilemma which is that I have a peanut feeder that only allows small birds to feed off them and I get blue tit and sparrows and occasionally a robin will have a go.
the feeder is hung in the middle of an arch which gives the birds some protection whilst they feed and they love it.
The other day I was shocked to see a rat which had got into the feeder and happily eating the peanuts.
Not wanting to attract rats, my dilemma is do I take away the nut feeder and so spoil my enjoyment of feeding little birds or leave it there and worry about feeding the rat ?
