Have you seen a rat in your garden lately? Most people will undoubtedly shudder at the thought but the top and tail of it is (we apologise for the puns in advance), Mr & Mrs Ratty will have at some point visited your garden sanctuary – whether you have decking or not.
There’s much misunderstanding around the behaviour of rats. We wanted to get to the (furry) bottom of the myth that ‘decking attracts rats to a garden’ – in short let us tell you that this is not true.
To back up our claim we enlisted the help of pest expert – Mark Robinson from the Pestforce network to address this and other tricky rat-based questions.
