    Cleaning Traps

    Always wash mine (can't afford a pressure washer) I believe clagged up traps fire slower and washing them (like Matt) gives me a chance to check them over/retune them

    Farage U Turn

    If you want the same ol' politics, vote for the same ol' politicians....but if you want some chance of a change, perhaps the chance of something better than the mess we've got now...vote UKIP

    Cheap Wasps

    All this talk about who charges what, be it a biggeR company or an LA shouldn't cloud your judgement. I sell my business on quality, I quote a price and that's it...I'm not going to get involved in a race to the bottom and I've had many customers who've used me because others are too cheap to do the job properly. I've also had people who've tried to knock the price down........I say people because they are never customers

  10. I felt certain I'd seen a sticky giving a load of advice on filling out a FAC application....has it been moved/removed ?

    how to stop nets twisting

    See a lot of twisted nets for sale at game fairs etc this summer.....seems that some net makers have trouble loading thier needles properly.....this is almost certainly the cause of the problem. You could try soaking your nets and drying them in the un-twisted position, if you see what I mean

    Time taken

    You say your hob is "lightening quick" is he a youngster/inexperienced?. In my experience hobs tend to be a bit slower than jills which leads me to think perhaps your hob's not working the bury very well. Also I believe as hobs tend to move slower underground rabbits find it easier to give them the runaround rather than bolt. Having said all that, I used to work hobs only at one time and found once they are experienced they are as good as any jill
