I’ll try to remember that word, Charmion. I don’t think ours have ever been treated to more than being referred to as “the dump”. Like you, I think the patch “no-one ever goes to” that develops into a tip is quite common.

We have had lots of problems with (brown) rats in the roof here over the years but that area of ground has never been implicated, in fact I think the only outside thing that was has been bird feeders. We are hoping that the last round of trying to have things cleaned up and rat proofed has been successful. This took place sometime last year and so far so good…

We have had problems with field mice instead. These have been seen on the kitchen floor but not on the worktops. I think they have been getting in via a gap around a kitchen or bathroom waste pipe but we’ve not wanted tradesman in doing work with the virus worries.

That said, I’ve not seen a mouse in over a fortnight although we are setting a peanut butter baited humane trap in the kitchen every night.
