So far the strike rate is three out of five. Not very impressive. However it has been more successful than poison, spring-traps or the high frequency sound emitter which supposedly drives rodents crazy.

Talking of small furry creatures – I really don’t like the speculative way in which one of my slaves eyes me as he lowers the cage into the bucket……..but perhaps he’s just teasing.
