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

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!
