    callie I’ll take your rat if you’ll take some of our ants I can let you have a few million  …… finding them all over the place but really bad in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry and we are pretty sure they have set up home in the door have to save up and get a solid door.
    Will be going outside soon to plant another tree, Bailey’s cypress pine should do well.

    I just got a rat trap and some peanut butter and a few mouse traps today…….
    The mice are digging into my raised garden beds I flood and block the hole theres a new one tomorrow….I had my wicker coach downstairs in storage for a while when I bought it upstairs to replace my dead chesterfield it had a hole in the arm and a mummified rat inside the arm…I fixed the hole with some wicker from under neath and a glue gun and you cant tell,,,,,,,,,So I thought I would leave a rat trap and some baits on patrol down stairs…and a few mouse traps on patrol in the garden beds…..They are filthy destructive  things and snake bait….

    I have trouble with field mice occasionally, but a RAT that is to horrible to contemplate. The last time a mouse dared to come in the laundry Anna the lab. had a great time chasing it I think she did more damage than the mouse. It did die of fright though.

    the offer sounds very tempting Judi,
    Liora, my dogs would let it run past them and probably welcome him to the family
    put lots of bait down again, behind the bookshelf, door closed, but the dogs can’t get to it anyway
    I open that door each morning, very dubiously – I don’t do dead

    Nice not to be battling rats calliecat!   But have discovered Tasmania’s jumping ants……………….bitey little blighters feel just like the ground green ant when they get you.

    But have finished moving 15 azalias and hundreds of bulb which were all in an area of 15 feet X 15 feet and there are still 2 large rose bushes, a camelia tree, helibours and more bulbs in that small area, they were choking each other out.

    I haven’t baited my problem yet,found the storage room door open this morning, so anything could have crawled in last night,which is a worry…I will bait and set a rat trap down there see what it snaps down on.
