    I did the same bought an expensive scope to go with the Wolf I had found cheaper better, another mistake I made was I need to use glasses for reading and found to see the screen clearly I needed to were my glasses,some people find the Nitesight World Eagle light Mamite you either love them or hate then I liked them but because of the ir issue move to thermal,you got a good bit of kit get the set up right and you will have loads of fun using it there good on to rimy and perfect for ratting with air rifle.P/s a must have get a scope with parrelax a just on it.

    Hello Main Man,ref one of my posts,more expensive lenses have coating on them that can reduce IR wave lengths getting through that is true in IMO I had a variety of scopes and the one that worked best was a £40 Richer Scope the lenses were virtually wiped clean of original coatings ,also the more visible to the human IR you filter out the less distance you get,at 950nm you can still see but at a reduced level the dull red glow 840nm gives you the better distance but also a bigger dull red glow.P/S I got on very well with the Night-site Wolf but decided to to thermal because of the dull red glow from the IR IMO its always there.

    In my experience mate Cage traps are very hit and miss,the best way to go if want cage trap is remove what the rats are coming into your garden in the first instance for then try a few batted traps you will just after put up the hedge hogs,not an ideal control method but you might get a few,don't forget why the rats are coming into your garden remove there access to this food that should solve the problem,there will also be a part off either in your garden or a neighbours were they are living if just be polite and ask them to help control them as well,good hunting.P/S out of all my cage traps I had good success with this one,https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rat-Trap-Squirrel-Heavy-Duty-Metal-Humane-Live-Bait-Vermin-Rodent-Cage-Catcher/123198622957?hash=item1caf35cced%3Ag%3AciYAAOSwV3pbJ8Ti&_sacat=0&_nkw=rat+trap&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xrat+trap.TRS0

    Poison mate in proper poison box the only way I find to adequately control the rat population. Take away there food source then they will go away. Trapping will catch at times but will not in long term be effective. Shoot em with air rifle (good sport) but again same as trapping.

    Got a map from Environment Agency witch is copy righted so cannot put it up here outlining were you can catch Crayfish with there permission,basically anything North of Stock on Trent is a no go area,were south of Stock on Trent is for the odd part you are OK to catch with there permission. Got to agree with what you say bell, only a matter of time before they totally infest all waterways.

    Controlling Mink, a good thing they are no so keen on preventing catching Mink in waterways, I trap them on a national trust site that has Otters and provided I follow there rules were all happy.

    Probably got to wait for the critters until they completely infest the Eco system, by then to late,any responsible person presume they are if applying for a permit would abide by the rules and do there homework on identification of native species. A good thing there not so keen with Mink.Still find it hard why they so against them being removed by responsible persons,or is it they assume we are all irresponsible. All I understand you keep catching nets full and eventually the population decreases or kept at low level. Just wonder what the Environment Agency plans are to combat this infestation?,maybe I should ask under the freedom of information rule
