Founder Jane had a rat in her loft. John Bryant gave advice that was simple to do and it worked. 1 week later the rat had left of it's own accord and Jane was left with a rat free loft and a clear conscience!
Sadly John passed away in 2020 but Humane Wildlife Solutions offer the same cruelty free approach https://humanewildlifesolutions.co.uk/
