    First wasp nest of the season

    I haven't seen a single wasp since the rains arrived. But the moles have gone ballistic.

    Tree vermin

    Love to see sub 12 doing the business.

    Starting in pest control

    Personal reccomendation is the longest way round - but the best and the cheapest.

    Starting in pest control

    More to life than money. Arthritis, heart problems.... It's all lurking round the corner.

    Starting in pest control

    The new buzzword seems to be 'Pest Management' rather than Control. Like you say, sales skills are more important nowadays. In today's corporate world it's more about selling peace of mind and compliance rather than actually killing anything. I'll stick with my moles. In fact, when my PL next comes round for renewal I'm thinking I'll have them take rodenticides off the policy. Moles, wasps, squirrels and rabbits. Won't make me rich but sure as hell a lot less hassle and what I enjoy anyway.

    no mole pricing

    As Nice pix says, the fence line is the most likely place you'll catch it.

    Night hunting with ir???

    I personally find I shoot better keeping the mag to a bare minimum in all circumstances.

    no mole pricing

    Unless youve got a contract with a customer to provide and service a trapline, it's usually 'no mole - no money' You'll struggle to get repeat business if you charge without producing. Is there a fence between the property and the fields?

    Ficam D / Vulcan

    Depends on the product. You'd struggle to kill a cat with Ficam D - it's only 1.25% w/w. The version for ant, flea, bedbugs etc is 80% w/w.

    Fenn box for catching Squirrels

    Me too. looks nice and simple. Need to be out of reach of little fingers, though. Maybe not one for the lawn.

    Okay to shoot now ? General Licence ?

    Sorry about that. I get so drunk of an evening, I shouldn't be anywhere near a phone. Apologies - I hope you aren't too angry with me.

    Ficam D / Vulcan

    It's the Ficam W that does for cats.

    Poison blocks?

    If you're on the payroll and get the ticket, there's no harm in having a go. You'll learn a lot, plus you'll have plenty of time to do a proper job. Just remember, the label is the law when it comes to pest control products. Read carefully and abide by. Most of the farmyards I know could really benefit from a good tidying, They're full of features that rats love, piles of tyres, rubble and timber that provide harbourages and drinking water. If you can find burrows, baiting these direct is a good idea. You can tether your wax blocks to a pegged wire and push it down the hole, or do the same with bagged wheat. Just keep a record of how much you put down and how much you remove at the end of the baiting period. Shame about the gun ban. Knocking rats down is good sport.

    That is grim viewing.
