My local CO-OP sells spray bottles of Bobcat Urine, for about $15. You won't have to handle the kitty-do and it keeps cats out
of unwanted places as well. ---And yep, it stinks.


How do you get a Bobcat to pee in a bottle? That's probably why it's so expensive.

My wife told me that one of the chickens killed and ate a fairly good sized mouse yesterday. Good protein i guess.

I have found a lot of mouse nests made of fabric softener sheets. Don't think that one is all that effective.

There is a video floating around of a mouse trap using a bucket, a can mounted on a rod like a coat hangar with the can covered with peanut butter, and water in the bottom of the bucket and a makeshift ladder for the mouse to walk up to attempt to get the peanut butter on the can and he falls into the water.

I tried it with cherry pits - but it didn't work...
Found this at the outside of my carport in the fire wood, directly among the cherry tree


That looks more like ground squirrel to me.

I used a version of the back when I lived in a run down duplex. I put a tall kitchen trash can next to the drapes with dog food in the bottom. they would climb the drapes and jump in the trash can and couldnt get out

This will do the job very efficent. Not only does it kill it but it disposes of the remains very well.

I was given a couple of hedgeapples yesterday,the guy that gave them to me said they repelled mice which I had never heard before. If I see a mouse I'll let you know, I'm putting them under my bed as I've been told they are great at repelling spiders
