Pests!

Recommended Posts

Fed up of squirrels chewing through my garden solar light cables!

The other day I found that he/they'd done 2 sets in the same afternoon! One set had only been 'repaired' the day before, but this time two of the twenty 'globes' were missing as well! Nowhere to be found, so presumably dragged off somewhere for some reason.

What's the attraction?!

Why don't you go next door?!!

This year I have never seen as many squirrels in my garden , we back onto massive woods . Now they are lovely to see but they are becoming bolder . All my strawberry patch gone ,even though netted , small cherry tree no cherries survived , lettuces  gone , flower heads nipped off , they even  ( somehow ) managed to destroy one of my pond plants . Buggers

Grey squirrel = Pests indeed.  They can cause a lot of damage if they get into your roof space too!  They are bushy tailed rats really.  One way to to move them on is removing ALL forms of food. 

 

Another is lead poisoning by way of .177 or .22 pellet administered at speed through a chamber.  🙄😲

Mice also like to chew/eat the plastic outer isulation on cables. There is something in the cable compounds apparently  that attracts them.

I'm not sure why you bothered with the above, but oddly enough it turns out that some manufacturers of insulation are indeed including soya in the mix.
