Rats/squirrels in the loft
Posted 25 November 2008 - 09:39 am
In the meantime im setting about getting some traps,finding entry holes and looking at rat baits i can put up in the loft. I cant really bait outside as she has cats,unless i can rig up some sort of tunnel feeder so the cats cant get to it?
I'll post again as things develop,thanks again everyone that has helped,its very much appreciated

The guy from the council came "cant see nee droppings up in the loft,ive put some bait down though,probably just a few mice."
Now lets make one thing clear,im not a rat man,ive shot a few with my air rifle,and ive had my beddy x out a few times courtesy of millet, but i dont know that much about them
One thing i do know though and thats that there are droppings all over the ex-wifes loft insulation,and there are runs,which can all be seen clearly from the loft hatch using a torch.
Looks like im going to get the job of clearing the little beggars out
Im going down there tomorrow/today,when i wake up,(just finished nightshift), i 'll take the camera and get some pics. Im fairly sure they are rat droppings.
Ive got a bag of readymix cement for blocking holes up,im gonna be lifting the loft insulation to see if i can find any sort of nest,then hopefully i will be going into town to get some rat traps and poison.
Watch this space

Best advice is to get an expert in, and they will get some poison down
That's the best bit of advice - get the pro's in before ratty eats through the wiring and causes a fire

Well what would you rather do? The ex wifes rats or a lovely young lady?
