Rat catch early 2013

rat catch early 2013

There is evidence of post-baiting population in two sections of the internal part of the Ark, one in the north and one in the south. These are indicated by red markers ie persistence is interpreted as March catch, or monitoring tunnel prints - a catch in February which did not repeat in March can be regarded as showing response to baiting. Comparing this with the previous map, the northern area is new, but the southern one is possibly a continuation from mid-2012.
