Do shop bought rat poisons work?

council? £102 for upto 3 visits

TBH there is a case for rat control to be free because they are a serious problem and a communal one. If they come from neighbouring properties (who do not want to spend any money) you will never get rid of them....

Bearing in mind rats are a communal problem I don't understand why there should be charges for some premises and not others.

Rats are a real pain. I've used poison, an air rifle, a mate's useless dog🙄

My electric fences seem to be the only thing that's had success but I'm guessing that won't work in your situation. 

I still look into other methods to keep rats at bay and one thing that is apparently very good is catnip so I'm growing some and I'm going to try that too.

Guns, dogs, electric fences, where do you live, San Quentin. :hihi:

I am more likely to take notice of your experience, TBH I am a bit cynical about product reviews generally !

You’ll get different opinions from  different people. They don’t always work, but I’ve had success with them in enclosed spaces including a cellar and a garage.

 

I was more suggesting that you use the reviews to choose between different products, rather than using them to decide whether to buy one at all.

 

One of the problems with ultrasound is that you can’t hear it, so you don’t know how loud the repeller is, or even if it is working.  I think that’s where the reviews might help.

 

Anyway, good luck with getting rid of the effin things.

 I was joking (......! ), cats might do the trick, but it's  a shop.
