Rats(?) in compost bin
Help! It has been in the low teens in zone 6 and when I put a gallon of veggie scraps into my black plastic bin yesterday, I noted three 2-3" holes. The bin is one I have used for several years in various garden sites. Our house is 100' away and it is made of insulated concrete with brick exterior. No shed within 500'. Garden area is in an open hayfield.
Was thinking of taking a quart of ammonia and dousing the holes or would anyone rec a slurry of cayenne pepper?
The compost material is crusted/frozen on top.
Whenever spring comes, I am considering laying pans of Pepsi nearby (sheltered), so if there are rats, they will meet their demise as they cannot burp.
