What to do about rodents in your garden

Symptoms

Our “gogga” of the month for July (the rodent) makes holes in the ground, nests in tree and shrub roots, and in overgrown places, chew marks in fruit and/or veggies

What does this mean for me/my plants?

Aside from physical damage to plants, wires and wood, rodents carry different diseases and if left to attack vegetables and fruit, will spread these diseases on to the harvest, which could be fatal for animals and humans.

Suggested Action

Apply a single feed or multiple feed rodenticide. Do not touch the rodenticide. You will have to apply more than one feed as a rat does not die from one feed. Never put feed in the same place as a rat will only eat once at a certain feeding spot. Rats and mice move into barns, stables & houses in winter due to the cold and because their is no feed available in gardens and fields.Visit your local GCA garden centre for advice on the best rodenticide for you!
