Full Set of 9 Genuine - Epson R2880 ink cartridge &hellip by Epson
If one is using a printer as expensive as this it pays to buy genuine Epson cartridges. Anyway I have not been 100% satisfied with alternative cartridges used on other Epson printers. Buying the full set of nine cartridges means that it works out cheaper than buying the cartridges individually, though the difference is not large. It seems that Amazon always uses Amazon Market Place firms to deliver cartridges and no doubt some offer a speedier service than others. One thing to watch out for when looking for the cheapest price is that some firms offer only eight cartridges as a set, including matte black or photo black but not both.
Epson Durabrite T1295 Apple Genuine Multipack Ink &hellip by Epson
Perhaps I have been unlucky with compatible cartridges but I have had so many duds (or perhaps it is the fault of the printers?) that I now always buy genuine Epson cartridges. Unless a computer is used very infrequently it makes sense to buy these Apple cartridges instead of Fox because Apple have twice the capacity but are less than twice the price.
Pest-stop Little Nipper Rat Trap (single) by Pest-Stop
These are not easy to set to the right sensitivity. Hence the trap will sometimes fail to go off as the bait is taken. However, if one perseveres then they will catch rats. I have no real complaint about these wooden traps but I much prefer the plastic ones:

The wooden nipper traps can quickly become dirty and have ingrained blood. The plastic traps are easier to set, easier to clean, and easier to release the dead rodents.
