1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    So basically I have permission on a large area right on my doorstep and the landowner has a contractor to poison the rats on the dairy farm but there is an area around the slurry pit that is never poisoned. I have laid a fenn trap in a decent tunnel but the bait regularly taken but doesn't catch anything so it seemds mice might be taking the bait or very clever rats. There are definatly rats there on the opposite bank of the slurry pit because I can see the burrow holes and have seen rats over there. My question is, because I can't afford night vision, would it work if positioned my red led on a tripod half way between me and the holes and leave it switched on would it scare the rats too much not to come out or would it work like red does with rabbits and foxes? I have had the light mounted on the gun but i get bored in the dark of constantly switching it on and scanning the area. I can align the tripod with a metal fence post so that it wont stand out too much, roll on the lighter evenings

    rats are very sensitive to changes in their environment, having a lamp turned on all the time would work but you would want to turn it on before it gets dark, and it would need to be a light source that floods the are rather than putting a spot in a certain place. red light dose work on rats in the same way as fox and rabbits. when using a white lamp it lights up the area in way that not only you but the quarry can also see what is going on around them, red light dosnt do that.

    if you can try baiting up between you and their holes. also put a few things between the bait and the holes for them to hide around so if they are spooked they dont bolt home they stay close, then you dont have to weight around to long for them to come back out.
