Re: Mice vs. RV
We had serious flooding this Spring and unbeknownst to me (until recently) Rats have come to live in my barnyard! They've burrowed underneath one of the chicken cages (the birds are free ranging all day but put up at night....too many predators). I've poured gasoline into their entryways, let the fumes go throughout there den and then ignite one hole......whuuuuumph! Fire shoot out all openings. Sometimes rats come out, too. I don't know if I'll ever be able to eradicate them completely due to the surrounding terrain features (Woods, woodpiles, an plenty of hiding places) and, of course, I've got to toss out food for the chickens! So, basically, I'm feeding these guys. I've got 12 sonic vermin chasers on order and I've set up a large garbage can with two "walk the plank" rodent catchers (got one last night). I don't dare put out poison due to the chickens, Barn cat, and our dogs. So far, they've stayed out of the barn (the cat sleeps in there), but they might get bolder as time goes on.
Any other suggestions???
