Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Re: Anybody know about RATS?

Rat boxes and poison have turned up and will be going down today. I am not sure there is much to eat in the garden unless they have their eyes on my tomatoes and courgettes. We don't have a bird feeder or other obvious foodstuffs around. Spotted near the compost heap so it may be time to turn that ...

I already use mouse poison boxes for the greenhouse and sheds which work well so have ordered a pair of rat boxes from the ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Currently gathering plastic buckets from the bakery at work. We chuck dozens away per week, and one type is one gallon volume , but rectangular, with a strong handle. They contained toffee cake filling stuff, and stack neatly on the shelves in the pantry and workshop. The round ones, I am giving to ...
