Unfortunately we are currently out of live mealworms and mini mealworms due to a national shortage. We are expecting this to last for at least another two weeks but as soon as they are in stock we will have them back online here, so keep checking back on the web for any updates. We do have stock of dried mealworms and live waxworms which your birds will both enjoy.

how to deal with rats

Rats and random ramblings

By Heather 11 years ago


Here is a Victorian tip on how to deal with rats. A number of corks must be cut down as thin as sixpences and stored in grease. These are then placed in the way of the rats. Apparently the rats will greedily devour the pieces of cork and will die of indigestion! Alternatively, you could just use a humane rat trap. How about one of these revolting rat recipies, which makes Muggety Pie look absolutely fab?

I would like to say hello to Carol who has recently befriended me on Facebook. Carol lives in Saskatchewan and would like to talk to other keen gardeners on Facebook or out there in cyberspace. Does anyone know of any good online gardening groups in her neck of the woods?

We have had some great feedback from Helen on taking receipt of her new paper potter.

“Delivery arrived at approx 3pm yesterday. All items present and correct. Spent all night making paper pots out of the newspaper you packed the box with! Am I very sad to say its great fun?”
