    i think because i have birds its worse but i been getting 4-5 mice a night in the 6 traps i have around the feed bins and aviary

    and this afternoon sometime ( cause i reset the traps this morning ) i got one with two young mice in it one looking too close while the other took the peanut butter ( chunky) ;)

    two for!!

    no power up at the fowl house or aviary yet but as soon as the ground dries out i'll run a trench and pipe a line over there and install a electropulse unit

    one of the local farmers uses runing lawn mowers all around his hay bails when he lifts them up tp move them. he gets a good 60-70 every time he does it. the run right under the mowers.

    Hey i was just thinking about that clip ( video Carne Frio posted)

    the idiot greens went and adopted all these kittens from outta the newpapers and such ( 100's!! ) and let em all go wild in the bush as a pest management plan ,

    we shooters been culling cats ever since , they did the same in the 70's too but only with 20-30 cats

    bloody idiots .. the mice are feral ( introduced ) now they set cats on our nature ..

    makes sense eh ? only if your a loon ..

    we have that kind of problem here with nutria rats.They escaped in the early 1900s and are a huge problem here.They eat the grass in the marshes.There is a 5 buck bounty on em.I once got a membership to a private fishing area for cleaning them out with a bow.I never had more fun working.I ended up killing over a hundred in one day.They were used to humans and just made it easier.They are good eating too.I ended up selling them for 3 bucks a pop from my truck in the black are.

    I am not squemish but I sure didnt like that video. I have few fears (spiders are the worst for me) but I am not sure I would have liked that mouse situation much. I would have been buying as much poision as I could get my hands on.
