Re: New MoM playground?

I just had an ad pop up on Facebook for a company IN OHIO offering "rodent removal services." The tentacles of the internet stretch far and wide. Nothing you say anywhere gets "by them!" :irk:

Re: New MoM playground?

Re: New MoM playground?

We occasionally catch mice in tiny Hav A Heart traps in our attic. Taking them to a wooded area far from houses and letting them go is an option. I don't know how crowded and built up it is where...

I'm glad your son was able to get their surgery, Mausey. It sounds like it was successful.

We can also only buy things like sparklers and very weak "bang makers" in our state. However, living as...

Re: New MoM playground?

Is it possible to trap the gophers? There are Hav A Heart traps that come in all sizes. I bet this has already been tried.

I have no idea. They have chocolate ice cream so I would guess it is very good. I'm not sure how to tell if an ice cream is "extreme" other than the company claiming it is! :lol:

I'm not sure it's pumpkin vines you shouldn't touch. Google had a video of someone trimming a pumpkin vine with clippers and holding the vine with the other hand.

Poison ivy is very unpleasant!
