Was screwing around getting the firewood pile going last night.
Had my skid steer getting ready to put it up and saw a possum in the yard.
It was dark. I had put some LED's on the skid steer so I could see really good and chased the turd around the yard for 15 minutes.
Wore his butt out when he finally hit the tree line.
Didn't need to kill him because he is not doing me any harm.
He didn't know whether to chit or go blind.

I do that to pocket gophers on the golf course with the cart.  Some times they hit the hole so hard they go sideways.  I'm just being a good guy and giving them their daily exercise.......

When I was a kid I  had an uncle that ran a golf course in Des Moines.
He had a lot of chipmunks tearing up stuff so showed me what to do.

Get yer fishin pole, tie a loop slip knot in the end. Then you chase a chipmunk
in the hole and lay the loop over the hole and strip off about 20' of line and wait for him to pop his head out.
Just like fishin for bass.

Possum chasing and chipmunk fishing sound like fun activities. I need to get rid of some chipmunks, they like to chew on automotive wiring. I keep some mouse candy under the hood of the pickup I keep at the farm and need to put some on the tractors. Mother in law is terrified of possums, think I will get a couple for pets. lol

Ex daughter in law has a couple of pet possums. She found them on the side of the road after mama got run over. Little bitty things. Nursed them to life and said  they are like cats.

I have a pack rat problem chewing up everything and stealing stuff. I let my WD stay greasy and have to raise the hood on my other 2 mowers to keep them out of there.
They ate my log splitter and $65 later got it going again.

Have to keep my skid steer in the garage of the house cause it a pain in the butt to to fix the harness in that, did it once already.
I use those plug in things to keep the mice away in the chicken house and in the main house and the garage. Haven't had any problem since I started to use them.

My ear and nose hair grows twice as fast as the hair on my head, not sure if there is any correlation with those plug in things or not.

Mice are real thick around the house, tell me more. What brand and where and any other details. Mouse traps are no keeping up. The boss, wonderful as she is says no poison in the house.

Read that kind of thing before I got mine.
Thought I would try it anyway.
If they don't work where did all the mice go?
I have feed in the chicken house and have one of those things right by it
and have yet to get a mouse or rat into one of those bags. Been over a year now.

I have several different kinds. Got them off amazon.

Fixer1958 -- dad tells me when he was a kid in the 1920's he and 4 brothers earned their 4th of July money doing that. County had a 20 cent bounty on them.
