Re: Floor covering advise please..

I was hoping someone with experience of using this might reply but no one has yet. :( :? I've never used pea gravel but I would guess it's longer lasting then chippings & it would depend on what you put underneath.

Re: I'm livid!

Unfair! How are we supposed to keep the rats at bay if it's cost prohibitive to purchase the poison? There are already more rat problems since council 'rat-men (people)' were discontinued. :evil:

Re: I'm livid!

Does that mean you have to have a licence to have a smallholding now? Not that I have one anyway but I've never heard of it before. I usually buy rat poison online & it is rather expensive anyway, but needs must, especially as the local council doesn't have a rat man (person) any more. (obviously co...

Re: Avian influenza (bird flu) in winter 2017 to 2018
