Noticed some fresh rat holes round the chicken run last week. Loaded 3 bait stations and it was all gone in 2 days. Reloaded then and it's not been touched since. Worth keeping on top of.

Now the pheasants are out in the fields, had a drive round my favourite "ratting" areas. Lots of new rat holes, loads of grain around the feeders. Looks like it's going to be a good winter for the R10 fac.
