Freeze him, we can invite that chef de campo to fillet and cook him, the bacon and liver will make a nice canape diane savoury course. :lol:

Roland has already been disposed of. BUT, I've just seen Roland II - my first sighting of these, excluding the one we'd caught in the cage trap thingy. (I had to see it for myself.)

Never mind battles and being sorry for the poor little beasties. This is WAR! I've kinda lost my sympathy towards them now.

Thanks for your good wishes Dave Dee.

Maybe it's a whole nest of young 'uns. They are small compared to a normal sized rat.

Well, I did feel sorry that we killed Roland but I'm not going to mess around any more. They've had plenty of warnings so if they want to continue in the danger zone then they'll have to take what's coming to them. :evil: I don't want to kill things, I wish they would just go elsewhere.

We'll get trap 2 down again tomorrow and maybe try the cockroach spray tactic again. They're starting to make me angry and that's not a very good thing to be on the receiving end of. :twisted:

I think the second "sighting" may have been a figment of my over-active imagination. I was a bit, erm, excited about having caught Roland.

All I saw next was a quick flash of a tail disappearing behind a cupboard. Maybe it was only a lizard? There's been no kind of evidence since to suggest we still have a rodent problem. I guess only time will tell.

I forgot to tell you that Dave hoiked out the kitchen book case - no mean feat as it's a kind of built in piece of furniture, with a heck of a lot of books to shift first.

Apparently, apart from a few droppings, there wasn't much to see, other than a little bag of foil covered chocolate coins. You know, the kind of thing you get at Christmas. It must've dragged that in there for itself.
