GROWING and STORING FOOD
There are two times of the year when rodents are most likely to attempt invasion of your home; fall and spring. This time of year with the coming of warm weather will see an increase of rodent activity. I hate rodents; the only thing I love about them is killing them. I have found that one of the best ways to keep their numbers in check is by trapping them. The best rodent bait by far is peanut butter. Peanut butter attracts rodents as well as feces attract flies. It doesn’t take much either; matter of fact less is better. Just a very small dab on the pan, no bigger than a pea, is sufficient to get the little bastards every time. In fact, they are more likely to spring the trap because they have to work more for the bait. This works for all rodents too; mice, rats, moles, chipmunks, and even squirrels. About the only rodent not attracted by peanut butter are marmots (ground hogs/ wood chucks). Those take an entirely different approach. I have found that the best method for culling marmot numbers is to be stealthy and wait until they are away from their hole. Then you sneak between them and their burrow and hack’em with your machete. You see, marmots aren’t too bright. They will still try to run for their burrow, even charge right at you. That is when you get ‘em; happy hunting.
