Re: [MBZ] OT (?) Mice eating the wiring

2015-09-08 Thread OK Don via Mercedes
We've installed a "mouse fence" around the carport - 10" high aluminum
flashing all the way around. You have to lift and move the section behind
the car you're going to drive, but since we typically only drive each one
once a week, that's not a big deal.
So far, no more indications of mice in the car or truck, and none the traps
inside the fence, but then again, I didn't catch any around the cars before
we installed the fence. However, one of the traps was carried 20 feet or so
down the drive one night, and now it's missing altogether, so I'm thinking
I'm dealing with something larger than a mouse. Hence, I'm off to install
and electric fence wire an inch or two above the "mouse fence" to
discourage (or hopefully kill) what ever is prowling around the cars at
night.

That, or something larger is going for the mouse caught by the trap.
That's what was happening here earlier in the summer. I wanted to stake
the traps to the ground, but never got the right stuff to do it.

You really could do a much better job in replying to the pertinent message.

never seen them bite one another to chase of an interloper, you've never seen 
them attacked and killed by dogs or cats. You don't even bother to check if 
your local park has a trapping program because they already have too many

Rabbit food is ubiquitous so he/she won't starve.

That being said, since he/she isn't interested in the bait this discussion
is pretty academic.  It's all about the chase.

I didn't realize you were thinking a few hundred yards away. In that case 
you're merely wasting your time, that rabbit is back at your place before you 
are...
If you really want to just protect your garden get real with your fence. If you 
really want rabbits removed then kill them. Thats the only real solution.
When you move an animal into new territory (real new territory, miles away) it 
will die. It will either be killed by predators since it doesn't know where to 
hide, or it will starve or dehydrate or get hit by a car trying to follow you 
home.What I'm saying in that situation is that you've doomed the animal to die 
even if you aren't actually personally doing the killing. Since your method 
means in most cases the animal will suffer a slow and painful death please 
explain how it is more humane than a pellet to the head?

In the natural order of life, the rabbit eating your home grown produce is
simply delivering protein to you for your use.
Kill it, eat it. and season it with the herbs and vegetables from your
garden.

You either survive by placing yourself at the top of the food chain, or you
become food for what is... Natures Rule, not mine.

Shocking isn't it... survival of the fittest.

Re: [MBZ] OT (?) Mice eating the wiring

2015-09-03 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
Are we speaking a different language?
I'm saying that in your example the rabbit dies either way. If you really want 
to save his life leave him alone but don't go being all smug that you've "Saved 
the little bunny" what you've done is doomed him to a short life of pain and 
terror. Where my pellet gun ends his life cleanly with little pain. I'm a man, 
I do the killing myself. You farm it out to somebody else and then claim it 
isn't happening.
Are you sure you don't work in the healthcare system?

Fellow out at the lake suggests using thread and tying a raisin onto the
trap. The mouse has to work at it to get it and that sets off the trap.
We have been using peanut butter but the devils can lick it out of the
trap without setting it off unless I use the crunchy style and push the
nut pieces into the bait holder really good.

The word "never" is a very strong word.  And if you eat a
steak or relocate wildlife your actions don't say the same
thing as your word "never".  But if you say "I don't enjoy
kil ling..." and so avoid  - then your actions and your words
are not at odds with each other.

As I see it, a man whose words and actions don't say the same
thing is a lier.

So this means I have to kill things with my own hands to become pure?


No, to understand.  To become real.

Confucius say:
I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I DO, and I UNDERSTAND!

Until you kill your own food, you do not understand.

When you don't understand, you dont appreciate what others do to make 
your life easy.  This is the root of the problem i have with all

Re: [MBZ] OT (?) Mice eating the wiring

2015-09-02 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
You keep using the word humane but I don't think you know what it means.What 
you're really doing is live trapping a rabbit that will die later as a result 
of your actions. If its lucky it'll get hit by a car and killed cleanly. Much 
more likely it'll starve to death because it can't access food because the 
other rabbits in the area you've transported it to won't let it. Its also quite 
likely it'll be attacked by dogs or cats or other critters.
A good trap kills clean, the animal feels that one bite and its all over, no 
suffering.
So with your trap you doom the animal to suffer, I kill it cleanly. Tell me who 
is more humane?
You claim to never kill but eat plants and animals that would not have died 
were it not for your appetite. I'm not saying its wrong to survive, the lion 
eats the antelope and never considers it. What I'm saying is that you need to 
recognize that other things die so that you might live, don't minimize that by 
saying you don't kill, your very survival ensures that others die. Even 
vegetarians eat plants that would otherwise have fed wildlife.

none around here that I know of.  There are groundhogs though.


My suspicion is that a ground hog put the mud and grass there in the 
spring and then baked itself in the warmth under the black hood parked 
next to south and west facing building sided that blocked the wind and 
reflected the afternoon sun.


The critter had big teeth, as it bit through the LF TS wires, and 
chewed insulation off other wires and cut some other wires down in 
that corner.  I doubt the AC will ever run, so I didn't fix those.  I 
had to splice and insulate several other wires.  I've never heard of

This is the time of year to start trappin the meeces. They'll be wanting to get 
inside as the cold weather comes on, reducing the population pressure outside 
reduces their need to get inside. I've been very successful trapping chipmunks 
this year and have accidentally (incidentally?) caught a couple mice while I 
was at it.
I'm going to try the peppermint oil trick this year. Supposedly you cut it 
50/50 with water and spray all around the foundation of the house...
For the snowmobiles I have yogurt cups with mothballs in the footwells, keeps 
the mice out good. Maybe you could put some cups of mothballs under the car?

That's a very good idea, but you wouldn't have to make little parachutes. Just 
tie helium balloons to their bellies and let them float away. They'll drift for 
miles and you'll know how far when you start hearing reports of tiny alien 
invaders. 

Another solution would be baby pythons from the Everglades. They have enormous 
appetites and will follow mice wherever they go. When they get too big, you can 
ship then to Andrew where they can feed on the rabbits.

PS: Anyone over 65 who gets the new "Fluzone High Dose" flu shot should be 
prepared for the possibility of moderately severe flu symptoms for a few days; 
(which is why I'm sitting here at the computer instead of working.)

For mice, I have a five gallon metal kerosene can.  

The dregs of a keg of beer get installed in the lower portion of the can, about 
eight inches.  Mice will try to get in to enjoy the beer.  Rat size hole at the 
top, slick side, deep enough that only the rats can touch bottom.  Mice lose 
hope and become rat food while the rat pickles in the beer.  Slugs drop in as 
well.

Feral cats who stalk my chickens find the pointy end of a .177 pellet injected 
into their hind end.  Low pumps so not fatal, just painful.  Applied enough 
times, the cat learns to avoid my place.  

Squirrels are too stupid to catch on quickly, so end up on a crows dinner table.

No one is feeding the cats - they are feral, and have been for the four

keep mice out of engine compartments. Solid aluminum fences do apparently -

Re: [MBZ] OT (?) Mice eating the wiring

2015-09-01 Thread OK Don via Mercedes
Now this sounds promising - "Mouse Trap Powered By Electric Fence Charger "

""You can catch mice with very little expense and no poison. All you need
is an electric fence charger," says inventor Keith Lamb of Gruver, Texas.
According to Lamb, a single 12-volt or 110-volt fence charger can be used
to operate any number of traps over an entire farm and can even be used
inside vehicles such as combines, tractors, pickups, and motorhomes. "On my
farm I have two traps inside my shop, one inside my pickup, and another one
inside my motorhome. All the traps are hooked up to an electric fence that
surrounds my pasture. " What makes the idea work so well, says Lamb, is
that fence chargers operate at high voltage -- 3,000 to 9,000 depending on
the model -- which is more than enough to kill most mice. If the mouse
doesn't die right away it will be stunned and fall into water at the bottom
of his traps and immediately drown. And though they operate at high
voltage, electric fence chargers draw very little amperage. "Fence chargers
barely use up enough electricity to change your meter reading," notes Lamb.
His patent pending traps are made from 2 1/2-gal. chemical jugs cut down to
8 in. high. A 2-in. high hole is cut into each end of the container, about
6 in. off the bottom. A ramp -- made out of cardboard, wood or even rocks
-- leads up to each hole. He then pop rivets a pair of 1-in. wide metal
straps inside the container. One strap runs lengthwise about 3 in. above
the bottom of the container, while the other strap runs across and about 5
in. above it. A ground wire leads from the bottom strap to the fence
charger. The positive wire is attached to a small metal screen enclosure
that contains the bait and hangs about 3 in. below the top strap. Water
fills the container to a depth of 1 or 2 in. The mouse enters the trap on
the cardboard "ramp" and then follows the grounded strap to the bait. As it
reaches for the bait, the mouse contacts the screen, gets electrocuted, and
falls into the water. "It's a simple idea but it works fantastic," says
Lamb. "I've caught as many as 22 mice in a single trap in one night. I've
caught more than 400 mice since I installed my first trap last year. The
container can be any shape or size. I've used 1 gal. anti-freeze jugs and
5-gal. pails. "The mouse usually gets electrocuted before it ever touches
the bait, so the bait always stays fresh. You never have to reset the trap.
The only maintenance is to remove the mice from the water. I think it's a
practical idea even if you don't have livestock and have no need for an
electric fence charger. You can buy a battery-operated charger for cheap.
Or you can install a 110-volt model and use it to operate traps inside your
buildings, then run a wire from the buildings to your vehicles outside."
Lamb runs wires all over his farmstead, elevating it up over the driveway
on poles so it's out of the way. "I put an antiseptic in the water, such as
lysol or household ammonia, to kill any bacteria carried by the mouse, and
to keep the mouse from smelling for several days. During the winter you can
put antifreeze in the water." Lamb has already sold more than 100 traps in
his local area. He's now looking for a manufacturer and is also designing a
trap for rats." -

I read on one site that they live trapped the mice, spray painted them,
then dumped then over a mile away. They caught them again in two weeks.
This got me thinking about strapping little parachutes on them and dropping
them a hundred or so miles away and seeing if they ever make it back. The
live catch traps are out already (they catch more than one at a time) . . .
