Rodents in the Garden
Have you seen your recently planted seedlings disappear overnight? You probably blamed slugs, snails or insect pests. But it could be rodents that are getting some veggies in their diet. Rats and mice are omnivorous, eating a wide variety of foods including seeds, invertebrates (insects, spiders, slugs, snails, millipedes etc.), eggs, fruit, and seedlings.
If you have protected your seedlings with slug pellets and can see no sign of insect pests then consider the possibility that it is rats, mice, rabbits or possums that have been eating your young plants.
