Gardeners can have many problems with rats. Rodents are attracted to gardens because there may be food and shelter for them there. They will be drawn to areas where they can find scraps of bird food, pet food and crops which are grown. They are also keen to find areas where they can nest and gardens will often have many of these. Piles of logs, bags of rubbish and rockeries can all offer harbourage to small rodents.

Traditional repellents and deterrents for gardens often do not cut the mustard. Most of them are not strong enough to repel rodents effectively. There are tales of them are working on the Internet, but for every story of success there are two of misery. Many people turn to essential oils and these may work temporarily but rodents will often get used to the smell and return. It depends on their alternatives.

In addition, this is often an impractical solution because of the size of the area which needs to be covered. As well as this, the smell will diminish over time and needs repeated replacement.
