Cats probably have fast enough reflexes to kill snakes but the two snakes I have would eat cats. They are quiet and gentle, except when they eat. Since I got them about 4 years ago I have not had a mouse in my residence. Though I can not smell them I am told that their prey, which includes mice, can.

Snakes are not for everyone though. When my grand daughter visits she counts the snakes when she first comes in the house.

If someone bottled "essence of snake" they could possibly make a mint.

Look at the proverb today:

"Is bean-taighe ‘n luchag air a taigh fhèin."
The mouse is mistress in her own house.

I guess that tells you straight, Merle. And in gaidhlig, too.

Holy Moses I caught 2 more today! I've lived in this house for 15 years and my last cat died at age 19 a few years ago and this is my first mouse invasion. At least my trap is now working.

It is amazing what cats can catch and bring home as trophies. Besides all the usual stuff I have been presented with rattlesnakes, fish, rabbits and even a turtle!

How far away from the house are you bringing them to release them? (And do you pack them a little something for the road?) smile.gif

I am releasing them about 100 feet away in the neighbors yard (after dark of course) and am leaving them a peanut butter and cracker snack. biggrin.gif

Was wondering if you have all the mice out of the house now?

Rindy it is funny that you ask. I thought my victory over the mice was complete until last week. I had a bag of Fritos on the kitchen table and thought I heard a strange rustling sound coming from it so I picked it up to investiage and it started squeaking! This is a tue story:) So I tossed it out the door and checked on it later and the bag still had the Fritos in it but no sqeaks. Needless to say I fired up my peanut butter and cracker trap again but haven't had any takers yet.

I don't think the war has ended yet.

You could just keep them on that Frito diet -- they might all die of heart attacks. Life expectancy of a mouse is not that great even when they are healthy. wink.gif

Well this is of the rodent family but my dog told me there was something in my window well. I looked down and there was a huge hole dug. So I took a stick pushed it in the hole, saw nothing but huge teeth. So got the hose to flush it out.

Well out it came. I had to club it as I wasn't sure what it was it came flying out. Scared me to death!!! How weird. Feel sad now as it was a big prairie dog. My dog a Schipperke is a excellent rodent getter, that's what they were bred for on ships. I could of had tunnels through out my yard....

Anyone had any mice or rodent problems? Fall will be here and they will be making their way in to the warmth.

Use a fly trap. I'm referring to that paper like pad that is very sticky and it is commonly used to trap flies. It is also applicable to mice. Put a little amount of food in the middle and when the mouse tries to eat the food,it will get stuck in the trap. I also experience this in our house and I'm 100% sure that it is effective. You trap the mouse without killing it. smile.gif

Thers a moose loose aboot this hoose.
For mice eradication introduce it to a cat, who will then proceed to bring them home for some fun. Chase them out dont beleive it. Any unpaying lodger mice tend to come in by themselves and got out by themselves. The most amazing little rodent was one that was an extreme sports fan, he or she climbed up the outside of the house and came in through the open living room window, even the cat watched in amazement. We do though have some bats resident in our loft.

Had to laugh at the moose in the hoose. I think nature can take care but if it gets really bad ya have to do something, I didn't have much luck with the square sticky mice paper they would get on and scream finally lay down. They are alive when you throw them away. I had one leave it's leg in it. so I don't want to us those anymore.. Finally figured out who you were today Mr RYHMER' nice to see you here. Well gues I best be geting on to bed. Getting late.

Back when I had lots of cats I had more mice in the house because they kept bringing them into the house and releasing them for my pleasue I guess. Cats do have a sense of humor. Right now I am catless and have found a humane trap that works without that paper that pulls their skin and legs off.
