I found that I had rats in my compost heap too ( I even startled one that was hanging upside down down and eating peanuts from the birdfeeder). I forked it over, poured on water and put rat bait down and they went away. My neighbour tells me he has rats under his decking, so I dont think we will be free of them. Like Gardening Grandma, I don't like the thought of them sneaking in the back door,past the dog.
