I have a Weasel in the loft, though never seen the b#gg#r...

Eats the smelly stuff they’re supposed to hate, sets off all the cage traps & does the occasional dump.

Currently blocking all ridge tile holes with wire mesh & cutting overhanging branches...

Evening... took a sample stool to a specialist... said first you’re blessed he chose your house, they’re protected so you can’t poison them (I wouldn’t anyway) & they’re one of the cleverest predictors on the planet.

So, Stalag Luft III has been heavily upgraded, anyone want to name him/her?

Seeing as you have an uninvited guest, you could always name him/her after something else you don't want - how about Diesel? :lol:

Current - Montego Blue, Pearl Grey, Cirrus trim & 295s. Cruise, Storage and pdc. E90 330i as a DD.

Could be worse I suppose - I had a rat in my loft a few years ago!

Now I understand how the expression "I smell a rat" came about - when you open the loft hatch and there is a dead one up there you'll definitely smell it. :sick2:

Well current defences are being tested

- can see the patter of little feet where I left the copper-slip & friendly pls don’t come this way wire ;@)

- All holes I can find are wired & secured with expanding foam

- 2x electronic anti-weasel gizmos installed, crossbow I made @ school just for decoration

However, ‘Pops’ is too friendly (+ reminds me of the last Terminator film that I thought was quite good) where the local name currently way ahead at the top of the list is ‘F’in little B’stard’
