Rats at The Royal

Last week I had a rat job at a garden flat in The Royal Crescent, Bath, the residents had seen a huge rat in the yard, Max was very interested indeed. The rat was sighted often running up a shrub on the back wall where there just happened to be a soil vent pipe and the rat was heard running up this.  Well I was just about to leave after laying rodenticide in Tamper Resistant Bait Stations (due to pets and children present) when the resident heard the rat in the pipe, I brought this to the attention of Max, he went berserk and tried to eat the pipe to get to the rat - bless him, well I think the rat took fright and legged it back down the sewers.  Next visit I will cap off the branch so that the rats stay in the sewers!!
