Vermin problem

Fieldmouse

They may look cute but mice can be devastatingly effective at reducing growing crops to mere stalks.

One of the few downsides to being in a rural setting, is that fieldmice and rats are present in numbers and after all it is us who have invaded there space rather than the other way round.

So unsurprisingly perhaps it has been reported by various plotholders that there is a problem with both mice and rats particularly at the top of the site.

Keeping plots tidy and rubbish free will help to some extent as will natural predation by stoats, weasels and kestrels.

However we are going to approach the Council’s pest control department to see if anything can be done to at least keep numbers down.
