Poultry Keepers unite against Rodents!
Unless rats and mice are your favourite pets, in which case this isn’t the page for you, then most of us really don’t like them and find them repulsive and problematic.
It is estimated that in urban areas in the UK you are never more than 2m away from a rat. Some say this is an urban myth from a Ministry of Agriculture report decades old. Later estimations (Dr Cowan at the Food and Environment Research Agency) calculate that today, in reality, this is nearer to a 50m proximity. It all sounds like guesswork to me.
Around our gardens, homes and pet enclosures they are persistent pests that steal food, eat chicks and bring disease. There are times when having a cat (or dog) around is not enough to solve the problem, and another solution is needed.
If your pesky pests are rats, mice, flies or mites you can buy Sonic Repellers, Bait Boxes, Baits, Smoke Bombs, Sprays, and Fly Traps here with our next working day delivery service. For more information about pests and predators, visit our Information Centre to see our Guide to Poultry Predators.
