Old smokey

Sporting Gun - - LETTER OF THE MONTH -

In his ar­ti­cle on “The art of Ter­ri­ers” in last month’s magazine, Nick Ri­d­ley wrote about a “spe­cially for­mu­lated liq­uid” for rat runs. Can you ad­vise if this liq­uid is com­mer­cially avail­able, or if it could be made up at home, please ?

Clive Bower, via email

Nick replies: Thanks for your e-mail, Clive, here is the rat liq­uid web ad­dress – www.shootright.co.uk. It is called,

Rat At­tack Smoker Fluid and can be bought from Shoot Right. It is spe­cially for­mu­lated to work in the rat smok­ers they man­u­fac­ture. It is very ef­fec­tive as un­like the use of old chain­saws, which pro­duce car­bon monox­ide, the rats are not suf­fo­cated un­der­ground and are more likely to bolt. It pro­duces a smoke that is quite thick and per­mu­tates through the ground and the in­gre­di­ents “ir­ri­tate” the rats and this is what makes them bolt. The cost of the liq­uid is £24.95 for five litres
