There are some vegetables which are best left to the professionals; though some gardeners will disagree.  Celeriac, swedes, fennel, mushrooms.

Would that it was as simple as removing bird feeders.  If you have livestock, you will have rats.  Mostly they go underground to die, though we did have a dalmation which was an excellent rat-catcher - no poison involved.

Yes, I have given the advice before.  I wonder what you think professional rat-killers would do to get rid of the rats?

The weed-killer must be applied to green growth.  It won't do anything to roots.  I am talking of normal Glyphosate.  Do not apply to anything before the weather warms up.  Anything you spray must be growing well.
