So I'm not particularly happy right now... ONE WEEK ago, I bought some bins to store my feed at my paddock. I used to store the same feed in the same type of bins a few years ago with no problems. Now that I've moved the bins back to my paddock, the rats have decided it would be super awesomely fun to eat my bins :( Of course, the bin that contains the most expensive feed. *Rage*
It's an open set up so I have to be *really* careful as to how I try to manage this rat infestation. If my horse decides to he can just finish breaking the gate and walk on in and eat til his hearts content.
He's never tried to get in before, the gate is half broken because of a friends incredibly naughty pony.
Does anyone have any horse friendly ways to either get rid of the rats, or something to put on the bins to deter them from further destroying them?
A friend suggested an anti-windsucking spray, but I don't know if a bitter spray will stop rats.
They haven't eaten any of my other stuff, apart from a couple bites out of a saddle blanket.
I would just get metal bins made up, but unfortunately I can't afford that at the moment.
Mad props to anyone that can suggest ANYTHING. I can't replace this stuff all the time
