Bait the trap towards the back near to the hinge but not too near as to enable the cats to reach in through the mesh to retrieve the bait

J Clips finally after struggling with suppliers for years we’re bit the bullet and started production of our own small J clips suitable for cage repair and building

Designed for joining 16g – 14g wire mesh together ideal for making or repairing cages

0.8mm thick galvanised steel to resist rust, British made in our own factory.

These close to 4mm inside diameter 8.5mm wide with good wrap around for secure mesh fastening

Best used with our black handled J clip pliers

Place baitboxes inside the perimeter at 10ft spacing, check every week and replenish as necessary, keep baiting until no more bait is taken then check every month.

Don’t touch the boxes unless you need to replenish

Check by using a camera phone looking inside the entrance.

Nail three plastic rat traps to a floorboard and place against the wall bait with chocolate covered raisins cover the traps with an upturned bread crate, cabbage crate or storage box to ensure other animals cannot access the traps

Family 14″ rat traps back in stock.

We’ve waited far too long and now they’re back just in time for this year which is promising to be the worst year on record for rat infestations, partly due to the new rodenticide regulations which came into force on 1st March and a warm 2017 winter causing an explosion of rats in all areas of the UK

New rabbit show cages

Just sent some new rabbit show cages to the zinc platers, these rabbit pens have large hinged doors

Still got to cut and punch the galvanised divisions and they should be ready to go out next week

Just had a tiring two day visit to WIRE Dusseldorf looking for a new 3D CNC wire bending machine which there were a few. The 120.000+ EURO price tag was a large pill to swallow but we have now something to think about. Made a couple of new contacts from the few UK suppliers that were there. All in all a good show well worth visiting and our German hosts were friendly and hospitable the public transport, food and beer is good too!
