Unfortunately, it’s not all fun and games here in Bulgaria. We are creating a food-rich environment for ourselves, and lots of other pests are keen to get in on the game. This includes numerous mice, rats and moles, as well as moths etc.
Having tried various methods of dissuading the rats we’ve resorted to trapping them; they managed to spring the traditional traps and steal the food, the electronic bleeper thing didn’t work, so we got these humane traps. I then have to drown them, a task I don’t enjoy, but it’s necessary to protect our own food source.
We’ll never be without rats and mice, but we can at least control their numbers and stop them getting out of control.
