I suspect in a few weeks another one (snake) will move in Elaine.  I hate snakes but he was quite beautiful and docile in the cool of the evening.  We came eye to eye as I was shutting the chicken coop.  I think my undies will be clean after a few more washes.

Aha - in which case the rats will return if there's something to tempt them. Much as I can admire snakes and their place in our world, I would not like to have one living so close to me, either. A green tree snake insinuated itself in the window frame over the hot water heater one winter. I found someone local to remove it (before I had a heart attack ;-) since then the fly/security screens keep out wandering wildlife.

The man on the right is the snake catcher Elaine.  The snake has been relocated.

Is the snake staying? They can eat a wallaby so the hens could be next once the rats are gone.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
