Pest Control Tips


Air Gun Pest Control – Rat Shooting

We’ve just arrived at the farm, this is Daniel from DJB pest control. We’re here tonight to shoot some rats. I don’t know if you can see behind, we just cleared in area ready for shooting. We’ve got the S510 in carbine ready to go in .

177. Brilliant gun, a little bit like a rimfire. Obviously in this area you couldn’t shoot a rim fire rifle because it ricochet and of course the danger of ricochet. So tonight the S510 is going to be the gun for the job.

On top of it I’ve got an IR illuminator, we’re going to put a Night Sight Viper on top of that. it should all be set up ready to rock and roll tonight get some rats. We’re going to put the night sight on now.

I’ve done a couple of little adaptations to it. With the night sight you get these rubber adaptors that you put on the back of the scope. I found with the night sight that the eye relief isn’t quite right on them.

So I had a friend of mine who’s a CNC engineer make me titanium replica of that with a slightly deeper relief on it, so you get a clear picture. The other adaptation I’ve done to the night sight is I’ve applied an amber flitter, it’s just lighting gel.

I’ve put it over, the gel that you get with the night sight are little bit too dark and I found that the amber ones are superb. First of all they eliminated eighty percent of the glare that you get back on your face, which shooting right said no problem shooting rabbits is not a problem but certainly if you’re shooting foxes, the foxes see the glare of the TV screen in your face scares the foxes and you’ve lost your chance at shooting one.

Jose’s using night vision, but trust me it’s dark. And I’m doing this with my eyesight which is absolutely appalling. Anybody that knows me will tell you that my eyesight is bad. The simplicity of the Air Arms is that you can load it very quickly, even in the dark.

So much more simpler than a lot of the other air rifles I’ve shot. They’re starting to get a little bit wary It’s hardly surprising considering we’ve taken the best part of 35 shots and properly killed about 40 rats.

So, they’re being just a little bit more cautious, a little bit wary. A little bit apprehensive about coming out. They’re still there, there still plenty of them there. Unfortunately, if I didn’t have to get up early tomorrow morning we’d probably stay here all night, we probably shoot 150-200 rats.

I’ve got to go to work tomorrow. I’m not sure if you can see under there, but the gap that we’re shooting at Is probably in places about an inch, maybe and inch and an half. So we were shooting the best part of 30 yards into an inch, inch and a half gap.

Which just shows the accuracy of the Air Arms. Absolutely brilliant. Good night shooting. We’ve had a really successful night tonight with this fantastic gun, the S510 from Air Arms. together with the Night Sight Viper has worked superbly well.

The best part 60 shots we’ve probably kill forty-five maybe fifty rats do you think? which is really good night here. Our best night previously was 26 here, so we’re really pleased. The accuracy of this rifle is exceptional, really is it’s.

It’s light weight, it looks like a rimfire it feels like a rimfire. But it’s more accurate than the rimfire and it certainly does the job. Tonight I thought we were going run out of gas at one point and when we checked it We had loads of shots left, I would say go on and do another 40 shots no problem.

So brilliant hunting rifle, brilliant for this place brilliant for rats and I’m looking forward to taking out and do more with the rabbits, hopefully we’ve got a couple of good condition permissions were can get on the rabbits and retested and see if we can actually use this gun at.

So I’m looking forward to it. For more information on Air Arms and their range of precision air guns visit air-arms.co.uk.
