Is Spring Here?

Posted on April 14, 2013 at 10:22 AM
While walking the dogs this morning I spotted the very welcome sight of not one, not two but three freshly arrived swallows swooping over a local pasture, a sure sign that at last the weather should wam up. ( I've no idea what they'll eat though as insect life seems very thin on the ground).
2 moles in 1 trap ... not uncommon in spring. In the world of pests moles have been very active locally, the males have been moving around and in the main have been easy enough to bring to book with mating on their minds rather than worring about any metal objects placed in their tunnels. At this time of year double catches in the "Duffus" or "Half Barrel Traps" are not uncommon.
Adult rat in a Fenn trap Rats have already had their first litters of youngsters and these are now big enough to begin making nuisances of themselves. The youngsters are usually quite naive and can be readily caught using traps, adult rats however display what is known as "Neophobia" and will avoid anything new in their immediate area for up to two weeks, so a mixture of anti coagulant bait and traps is often required to bring rat infestations under control.
Young rabbits can cause problems for gardeners.Cage traps can be useful for rabbits1 I always stress to clients that winter is the time for serious rabbit control, any does taken in the winter will save having to deal with perhaps 3 or 4 litters of five or six young during the summer. Doe rabbits will often leave a warren to have their young in a quiet spot, like under a garden shed, and once they areweaned leave them to their own devices and go off and mate again. These youngsters then begin to run amock in newly planted and freshly sprouting gardens and gardeners, much like Mr. Magregor in The Tale of Peter Rabbit are usually none to pleased. These "bunnies" can be caught in cage traps, Fenn or Springer Mk 6 traps (placed in the burrows or a purpose built tunnel) or bolted into nets using ferrets. Standard 2" mesh purse nets are useless for this as the small rabbits hop straight through the mesh, I have had to knit some 1" mesh "specials" for use where young rabbits are driving clients to distraction.
Squirrels fall victim to Fenn traps too. This time last year squirrels were an issue for lots of people and though I've had several to deal with in people's lofts, there doesn't seem to be so many about, maybe the extreme wet summer last year put paid to alot of them.
 Another "pest" which didn't do well in the monsoon last year was the wasp, I didn't treat very many nests and I've not seen many queens about yet this year, which is good for picknickers and barbequers but not what pest controllers want to hear.
 Likewise bumble bees appear scarce, the weather has been exceptionally cold but there should be some around now, hopefully plenty survived the winter, though locally they have a formidable foe in the huge numbers of badgers to contend with, I lost count last year of the bumble bee nests I found which had been dug out by badgers.
 Hopefully soon the sun will be out and all the "buzzy things", "crawly wigs" and everthing else will get get going.
 
 
 
 
This chap obviously had "other things" on his mind.
