  • Thread-topic: [cg] rats, solutions to

i hear that.  one of my gardens has an old shed that APS (atlanta public schools) owns and it's quite a habitat for packs of ferrel dogs and various nocturnal creatures.  APS abandoned the shed/barn loooooong ago but i don't have the money to take it down and they don't have the motivation.  

interestingly, the rats in the shed haven't expressed any particular interest in the compost.  neither have the rabbits or dogs.  and neither have most of the gardeners, for that matter!

Conventional wisdom is that rats need 4 things - food, water, harborage
(place to burrow), and cover.  Remove any or all of those things, and
they tend to go away.
Good luck.
