|Operation Mouse Removal!|
Huh...who knew? Wild cats... raccoons and possum do help with keeping the mice population under control. Close up the barn...and POW...out-of-control-mice-O-RAMA!
The fix of one problem seems to always lead to another problem that you don't see coming.
So...enter...Operation Mice Witness Relocation program.
I've killed many-a-wild-thing in my life...and it's not really fun...regardless the reason. I needed to come up with a way to catch LOTS of mice all at one time. One at a time wasn't going to cut it.
There is a five gallon bucket method that is quite successful but I'm not really interested (at least for now) in drowning these little pests.
So I found some metal box type live traps. Cost me $12 bucks on amazon. (figures I've since found the same exact thing at wal-mart for $7 bucks.)
|Mice running into the woods upon release|
The barn definitely feels different with less mice crawling around to leave their diseases lurking for my chickens.
Hip Hip HURRAY less mice around today!!!!
