Havahart 1077 Live Animal Professional Style 1-Door Squirrel/ Rat Cage Trap
Havahart 1077 Live Animal Professional Style 1-Door Squirrel/ Rat Cage Trap
Price: £22.00

3.0 out of 5 stars If you're thinking of using this for trapping squirrels, be careful!, 3 Feb 2014
It is illegal to release non-native species into the wild in the UK, and in law grey squirrels count as non-native. Personally I think it's better than killing them, provided you're not in a red squirrel area, but be aware that if you have neighbours who like squirrels in their garden (and who don't think things through) you could be prosecuted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bags I received are not exactly as pictured. These have a sort of shoulder diagonally up to the string, which is sealed on one side, but not on the other. Nevertheless they are suitable for purpose. I object, however, to the company's enclosed card, which offers 'Special deals for your 5* reviews'. I will not be bribed into giving a good review, and I think it is unethical of the company to do this. Aren't they capable of offering five star products and service to get the reviews by merit?

3.0 out of 5 stars Just a warning, 11 Nov 2013
In researching this product I came across this [...] Particularly, ' Whilst the trial indicated reported subjective improvements in swelling and discomfort we also noted those correlated weakly with measured swelling. We concluded that, the evidence seen by the ASA to date suggested that, whilst the product might help with swelling and poor circulation in some circumstances, the evidence did not justify the implication that it definitely would do so, or that results would improve after time.'

It seems a lot of money to spend for something that appears to have just a placebo effect. There is no denying that the placebo effect is genuine in many cases, and people do feel better, but I can't help thinking a bottle of vitamins would be a cheaper way to obtain this though. Hope this helps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fulfil promise., 12 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Far too much of the book is given over to biography. This potentially fascinating subject is superficially skimmed over in a very simplistic way. I'd recommend Brian Cox's Wonders of Life over this book unless science scares you, in which case, why would you want to read this book?

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little diary, 1 Nov 2012
Sweet little A6 diary. Like some address books,the months are indexed on tabs, making it easy to find whatever date you're looking for. There is a 2013 year planner at the front, and a 2014 year planner at the back. Each month has a two page month overview, and the week-to-view pages have plenty of space. There are 20+ pages for notes and another 20+ for contacts at the back. All in all the perfect diary for me. (And there's a little sheet of stickers too, for marking events and things, adding to the cuteness factor.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and easy to use, 23 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last I've found a calorie book that really lists everything alphabetically, that is without separating things out into different categories so you have to decide whether something is a savoury or a snack or whatever. It lists all the products together so it's easy to compare to find which brand has the most fat or whatever. I was confused for a second when I searched under O for orange juice, but then realised, it's listed under J for juice, so you can compare it with other juices. Brilliant!
There is a separate section at the back for the major takeaways and fast food restaurants, which is also brilliantly logical, because it makes it easier to checkout the calorie, carb, fat and fibre content of all their offerings. You'd need to check it before you went though, as the book is a bit too hefty to pop inot your handbag!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little notebook, 29 Dec 2011
For those of the generation for whom the word notebook conjures up a picture of sheets of paper bound together rather than a small computer, this will bring a smile to your face. Personally I find it a lot quicker and easier to jot down a note on paper than to fiddle through phone menus to find the right place, then squint at some Lilliputian keyboard to write the note. Plus you never have to worry about this one's battery life! And it's unlikely to get nicked either!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does a brilliant job, 4 Dec 2011
I use mine regularly, but in particular, yesterday, I filled it with peppermint tea at 9am and got back home at 11pm and it was STILL too hot to drink straight after pouring! That's 14 hours! And it didn't have that horrible 'flasky' taste that you sometimes get when you have drinks in flasks. I drink a lot of tea and I think I'm going to start using mine even when I'm at home to save faffing around boiling a kettle every time I want a drink.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Birthday Present I've ever had!, 1 Jun 2010
This Roberts DAB Radio recorder is brilliant. It is simple to operate, easy to set up recordings, has good quality sound and means that I no longer miss any of the radio programmes I want to listen to, nor do I have to catch up by listening to them online. I've had mine since last July (It's now May) and it developed a fault - it would no longer work using the mains adapter, and although it did work on battery power it seemed to still drain power when it was switched off. I returned it to Roberts and they replaced the unit, so I think the customer service is pretty good. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who enjoys radio. As others have commented, the only improvement this needs is for the title of recordeds programme to be included rather than just the date and time.
