I’m sure Joe is thrilled

I’m sure Joe loves this little ditty just as much as I do.  I live in the middle of wheat fields and mice come seeking warmth during fall and winter.

To better protect children, pets and wildlife, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that it is moving to ban the sale to residential consumers of the most toxic rat and mouse poisons, as well as most loose bait and pellet products.

I mean, how else are we going to deal with these little bastards?

Cats would just feed the coyotes.  A bigger cat isn’t legal to leave around, and I doubt an exterminator will make a house call to the middle of a wheat field.  May the douchebag that came up with this piece of crap policy end up with an infestation of mice in his house so bad it is rendered uninhabitable and condemned.

    Thanks to this, I’ll be buying a few years’ supply of D-Con over the next few months.

    Take a 5 gallon bucket and put some peanut butter in the bottom. Make a ramp and they will fall in. Works like a charm. If you like your rodents drowned, put in enough water so the mouse can’t touch bottom and the peanut butter on a piece of plastic.

    We could dump some anti-freeze in it to keep it thawed. It just much easier to poison the bastards because it works in any climate. When it’s 0F out, the water is solid.

    Used the method you describe while in scouts. Bastards would chew up anything it could get their teeth on.
