A MOUSE? SINGULAR? LETS THINK ABOUT THIS....REPRODUCTION BEING WHAT IT IS, THERE MUST BE AT LEAST 2... I AM SURE MICE BELIEVE I POLYGAMY RELATIONSHIPS .... II THINK WE HAVE A FAMILY LIVING INTHE KITCHEN AREA.. AQND NOW ONE IN THE OVERFLOW ROOM... WITH A HUSBAND WHO COMMUTES.
A FEW WEEKS AGO I STARTED ON THIS TOPIC ABOUT THE TIPPING POINT... ILLUSTRATED BY... IF YOU ARE INHOME DEPOT AND YOU PULL OUT A FEW LINKS OF CHAIN FROM THEIR DISPLAY, THERE IS A POINT AT WHICH THE WEIGHT OF THE HANGING CHAIN WILL EMPTY THE ENTIRE BIN ONTO T HE FLOOR. TEH STRAW THAT BROKE THE CAMELS BACK, CONCEPT... WITH MICE... IN AUSTRALIA THEY WERE INUNDATED WITH MILLIONS OF MICE... ANKLE DEEP IN FARMERS FEED LOTS,... SOMEONE DETERMINED THAT 350 MICE PER ACRE WAS ENOUGH TO START THE OVERPOPULATION.
WE HAVE MORE THAN A FEW... AND I THINK I BETTER GET AHEAD ON THIS 350 PER ACRE NOW..
SEVERAL PEOPLE DID SEND ME A BUNCH OF THOSE VICTOR MOUSE SNAP TRAPS,, WHICGH AFTER MAQILCALL WERE PUT CAREFULLY AWAY BUT LIKE ARCHIE WITH THE TOILET PAPER PROBLEM OF "EDITH, I AM NOT IN THE KITCHEN", I NEED TOFIND OUT WHERE THEY HQAVE BEEN STORED AND GET THEM TO USE.. THEY ARE, TO ME, TEH MOST HUMANE.. SNAP... DEAD .
I LIVE IN FEAR OF SOMEONE DECIDENG THE MOUSE/ RAT POIZON IS NEATER AND QUICKER WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE PUTS OUT POIZON.. BECAUSE A DEAD MOUSE/RAT IS A CHEW TOY TO A DOG. THUS PUTTING THE POIZON IN THE DOG.
SO WE SNAP.. THE #1 PROBLEM WITH SNAPS IS THAT TTHEY MUST BE PUT WHERE THE DOGSCANNOT SNIFFOUT THE TRAP LOADED WITH A BIT OF CHEESE SO THEY MUST BE TUCKED AWAY SOMEWHERE WHICH GIVES US #2 PROBLEM STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS MUST NOT STICK THERI HANDS IN TEH CORNER LOOKING FOR COFFEE. IT IS POSSIBLE TH USE RED TAPED ARROWS TO ALERT PEOPLE TO THE "SET TRAP" BUT YOU THEN HAVE PROBLEM #3 HOW CAN YOU BE SURE EVERY VOLUNTEER KNOIWS THAT THOSE RED ARROWS MEAN DO NOT... WHEN THEY COULD THINK "TRY HERE"
SO I HAVE AVOIDED THE TOPIC... WE HAVE HEALTHY CONDITIONS FOR MICE --- HERE'S ONE I DID NOT KNOW...
I GOT THSOE LOVELY RED ( EXPENSIVE) CHERRIES FROM HALE AND ATE A FEW AT MY DESK .. CAREFULLY PUTTIN G THE STEMAND PITS IN A PILE NEXT TO ME BECAUSE I L.ACKED A SCRAP BASKET. THE NEXT MORNING ALL THE PITS WERE GONE.. THAT IS A HUGE MOUITHFUL FOR A TINY MOUSE.... WHICH I THINK THESE ARE.... I DON'T THINK THEY ARE BABY RATS... THESE ARE MICE.. THERE ARE SEVERAL RUNS THAT I WATCH ---- JUST BEFORE MAILCALL ONE RUNS FROM CLOSET TO WASHING MACHINE,, AND IN THE MORNING ONE COMES FROM LIVING ROOM YUPPY PUPPY TO CLOSET.... WISHFULLY THINKING IT WAS ALL THE SAME MOUSE, THANKS TO OUR ALERT CAMERA CREW THEY HAVE PHOTO'D SEVERAL INB TEH SMAE PICTURE... SO NOW... I HAVE ONE OR TWO HATCHED LITTERS???? AND AM I ON MY WAY TO 350 PER ACRE??? ALONG WITH POLIGIMY I DON'T THINK MARRYING A SECOND COUSIN IS A PROBLEM EITEHR
SO I AM IN TROUBLE. my solutionis to set up wiore cages withset traps that the mice can easilyget into... besides it willgive camera people somethignto watch.
I WAS SOOOOO PLEASED WITH MY chickne coop's 19' 3" DIagionals being equal ( to which i added teh diagionals of teh 4 x 4 posts inthe dorner which in fact are 3 1/2 x3 1/2 with a diagional of less than 5 --- twice--- so teh whole diagional is darn close to 20 feet ) .. i wantted tospend some time solidifying thebottoms of thsoe posts, but this 350 mice per acre may take over.
teh july 4th weekend is notoriously weak on chickenbrick sales..
so please would anyone who can give us a boost on clicking the chicken.
thanks to those who bought bricks in SANTA FRANK's name.
