January 30th, 2006 06:17 PMGosh that sounds like alot of work. I have tunnels EVERYWHERE! I wish I could just pay someone to do it right.
We had tunnels everywhere.
When I tried that first few single feeds in several tunnels to no response it mandated a rethink.
Which was successful.
Once I knew what to do I hit them all.
Walk around everyday, 1 1/2 acres, and if I missed one or there was a new one, hit it.
Soon enough, was all done.
Methodical, consistent, Key.
Found the right sized twig to poke the holes, used it the entire run, parked it under a tree when not in use.
Some things you have to do yourself.
No one will take care of you as good as you will on many counts.
Right now have to take care of animal(s) in house (wall/attic) problem.
Property was previously well balanced.
Katrina took a lot of animal homes and ripped the house a bit.
So the homeless animals looking for homes. With us.
Possible rat, probably possum.
Got the catch em alive traps today; did see a possum come from under the deck... he doesn't live under it, likely that larger critter I heard in attic last night... Know nocturnal track, will catch the sucker.
Professional exterminator had advised poisens when he saw the insulation hanging down under the place.
When something dies in your wall as a result of the professional's advice, you know to go your own way, find out as much as you can, and grab the bull by the hor.... er, the rat, possum by the tail...
Before can close up all possible entrances/repair Katrina wind mischief, must catch... don't want them clawing their way into the house proper with normal exits closed off...
Country living, ain't it grand. Well yeah it is.
Under normal conditions all was dang spiffy.
Just more work to it right now with the upset.
