No, downrightart, I don't think the moderator meant you. I think 'Windows' must have written something that's been deleted.

This reminds me of the part in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas where little Cindylou Who says, "Santy Claus! Why? Why are you taking our Christmas tree? Why?" He had to think up something quick too.

I don't blame you for getting rid of the snakes. They scare the heck out of me. Well, not when they're at your house, just when they're here. lol.

OH! I haven't thought of that part in the movie for a long time!

I've killed alot of snakes in my life, but most of them were rattle snakes. I should have kept the skin for those over the years. I'd have me a few nice pairs of rattle snake skin boots by now!

They sell a trap called "have a heart" that's a similar idea but that's pretty creative. I wonder if the mice don't suffer a worse fate by the relocation. They are territorial creatures and I'm not sure how well they adapt to their new environment. I know of a woman who released them just outside her house who was most likely recatching the same ones with new bait.

Good grief. This is NOT good.
Sounds like windows got a blue screen of death.

I sure didn't, (dialup) but I googled it and saw what you meant, and I immediately built one for the chicken coop! (Although, I used 2 ice cream buckets to make it easier to dump little dead bodies and refill.....)

It works!

(she's finally OK with just killing them outright....yay!)

That's awesome. I built one over the weekend as well. It was a fun project for me and my kids. Now they keep asking have the mice shown up yet. I'll take a picture once I have some kills and post it.

We'll see how we do today, I know there are tons of them out there to kill off.....

you should put some metal plates in there with 240v, much more humane death then drowning, and probably easier to cleanup too.

Bonus is you get the lights dimming as an indicator that you caught one!

You also get a much more satisfying "ZZZZZAP!" than those bug zappers!
