A Thought For Christmas



Christmas whilst it generates a huge amount of excitement and fun almost always changes our routines.

Frequently there are mountains of packaging and wrapping paper to dispose of and scraps of food to discard.

Keep these separate and ensure that the left over food ends up in your wheelie bin. If you have an over spill of rubbish ensure that paper and cardboard are put in to plastic sacks.

The guiding principle is you do not want to provide snacks for rats mice or foxes which they can get at easily.

Frequently in winter the garage can be as cool as a fridge some years but 2016 looks like it may well be on the milder side. If necessity does dictate storing food other than the fridge or freeze ensure that it is in strong plastic boxes with sealed lids. Rodents can and will chew through cardboard.

If you have animals such as, horses, chickens, and so on typically their food can come in paper sacks but these are very vulnerable to attack by rodents. Their sharp teeth have little trouble chewing through such containers. The best way to keep unwanted pests at bay is to keep such food in either metal bins or at the very least sturdy plastic storage containers.
