You need to be incredibly careful about using baits outside, to avoid pets and native wildlife eating them.
I have a friend whose husband has made a contraption out of a pipe just wide enough for a rat to get in. He secures the wax block baits inside with wire. They have had a lot of success with them.
I always get a pest guy out and tell them I have kids and a dog- they know what to use and where to place it
No pets but plenty of wildlife I would hate to eat it
I got rat sack. I was away for 3 days and the buggers had their own Xmas feast on my garden. All the kale gone, ate my tomatoes, potatoes ... Don't want to risk rest of garden
Can you enclose the veges in chicken wire to keep them out?
The bugger has been crafty, I don't think that would stop him, I saw him again, nice and fat thanks to his Christmas feast, he's already taken the rat kill too
