    Hi, I've recently moved to an estate from a farm. Rats have never been a problem until now.We settled the girls in with a wide mesh skirt around the chicken run, rats literally cannot get in. They are still living under my shed, I've poisoned them lots, they cannot get to the corn. Any suggestions on how to control them? Thanks x

    Poison in really hard to get places, traps in easier areas and cats. Cats will destroy entire populations.
