Humanely dealing with pests this winter.

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Have you ever had a pest problem? I used to have a pet rat. They are smart, affectionate, clever little things. I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps.

I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps. It's not ideal, but it's better - and safer - than poison. 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:

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it.

The lockdown gave Canterbury sports vet Sara Bagheri a chance to hone her long-held vision of providing community veterinary services to those who cannot afford to treat their pets.

"As vets we don't get any subsidies from the Government to reduce the costs of animal care and it's been a long-held dream of mine to create a service which provides vet care to those who might otherwise struggle to afford it," she said.

"Pets are so important for wellbeing and especially in uncertain times when we can turn to our pets for a source of comfort and routine."

Bagheri is currently developing a plan for the community vet service and is keen to hear from others who would like to be involved in the project.

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Think you know how old your dog is? Think again.

Multiplying by seven isn't accurate, a new study says. Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and other leading health institutions across the country have now debunked that common belief.
