Beaurepaires Thorndon

Tania from Miramar

Big shout out to Dan and crew at Beaurepaires, 178 Thorndon Quay. They have been operating since the lockdown providing outstanding service.

I've done a little research on humane, effective vermin control during the wet months, when they like to come in from the cold. Take a look:
