Gloucestershire, United Kingdom
I have recently built three compost bins out of pallets and filled them with partially composted and fresh garden material. To my utter horror, I have now got at least two rats making a nest in them. I drew back the carpet cover the other day and it jumped out! They seem to be going for the windfall apples and the sunflower heads. We have dogs so poison is not an option and I have heard that if you have one you will end up with a lot more very quickly. What should I do?
