Managing Pests: Rats & Gulls

Town Hall Assembly Room

 

In common with town's across the country, we face increasing challenge in dealing with rats and gulls. What are the authorities doing to address the nusiance of gulls dive bombing residents and rats tearing open black bags?

 

AND is it all down to Councils - what part do we residents have to play? Local people drop food and however much we want to help the birds are our bird tables also providing a ready food source for rats? What can we do?

 

All these questions and more will be explored with the experts at this Midsomer Norton Society evening being aranged in partnership with the Town Council. A representative from B&NES public health team is coming.


Members and visitors will receive a warm welcome.
