That's not good news for me, I won't have any work left. With the moth balls, ammonia,electronic devices, and the really effective plastic owls,now these, there won't be any nuisance wildlife issues left. I guess it's time to start trapping muskrats in East Syracuse to make the really big money. Anybody have a bunch of 160's with my tags still on them they might like to sell back to me ? ;D
Mint is offensive to mice but coon seem to like it just fine when used right.Artificial catnip,which is basically a weaker version of regular distilled mint oil is a good choice or substitute.Guys that use dp's or want to discourage mice from stealing bait at any type of set pay attention,MICE DON"T LIKE MINT...LOL
Mole,there is a difference between the plant and distilled essential oil,it's much more concentrated.Mint is one of those old time mouse deterrents.A few drops on a cotton ball scattered around keeps them away,we started using it around our hunting camp to help keep them away and off of the counter tops ect...
Nice pics Mole,but that last one you probably didn't need the flash outside,you made him blink.LOL
One of my relatives woke up at hunting camp one morning to a weasel sitting on his chest eating a mouse,I never heard a grown man scream like a girl before.LOL My grandfather and I were sitting at the table eating breakfast and heard the weasel in the ceiling chasing the mouse around,then it stopped,Grandpa said,"must have got it." The screaming started about 45 seconds later.LOL
