Keeping Hens & The Risk of Rats!

A recent customer based in Ingatestone keeps about 5 free range hens. This has become a very popular thing among many urban dwellers now and it's lovely to be able to collect their fresh eggs, but there are problems that can arise and that's rats taking full advantage of a regular food source, especially in winter when food can be lean elsewhere.


Keeping on Top of Rabbit Problems

With winter not far around the corner, this can be a great time to get on top of a rabbit problem. With summer vegetation now dying back it allows the very effective method of netting the holes of the warren, and working ferrets underground to bolt the rabbits into the purse nets. It's a very humane way of reducing greatly the number of rabbits that may be causing problems.
