When we were in US in '80s, ISTR reading in the AOPA-US magazine of a GA pilot who had dropped in on a pal's strip somewhere in the Prairies, on a slightly chilly autumn morning; in a Super Cub, I think. When he came to leave in the late afternoon he did a diligent walkround, and found a mousenest established under his cowling. Well, it must have been cozier than in the adjacent stubble. :?

You’ll have them lined up in their hessian dungarees, with their smelly quinoa breath, doing a protest outside your hangar if you’re not careful! :D

.. but cheap, even free, for them and for the deer .. :)

[at the beginning of lockdown our allotment committee had but up signs on the access gates asking people to leave them open to minimise handling. Within a month the sign had changed to asking people to keep them closed, because of extra depredations by wildlife, especially deer. But by then the deer had got used to the buffet and were evidently jumping over the fence. Our runner bean tepees have a curious bikini effect: nibbled in the middle, but with regrowth at the bottom, and growth from the surviving climbers at the top. Oh, and I though that this year I'd created a badger-proof citadel for the sweetcorn; I was wrong .. :evil: ]

I have a video clip from a security camera that I can neither copy nor paste on here.
It shows a rat holding a stick/pencil and setting off a trap before eating the bait.
We’re doomed!

Rodent poison :- 1 vol. flour + 1 vol sugar + 1 vol bicarb of soda or 1 vol Plaster of paris.
Mix thoroughly and leave in a small tray/dish Leave water a distance away. Rodents cannot fart or belch. After eating the bicarb mix, they're thirsty. off to get a drink, bicarb gives off gas......Plaster sets hard,fatal constipation/ full stomach, can't eat. it works.
store in an airtight vessel.
