Glue traps are messyGrass Snake said:drowning sounds so messed up lol
I hunt birds regularly with a 12 gauge and have to dispatch birds all the time that aren't clean kills. Ideally, it would be a clean kill but it doesn't always work out that way. I've caught mice in glue traps where they say to just throw the traps away... Thats inhumane to me. I always dispatch them. Either shoot them in the head or handle it with a hammer. Not something I find fun though. As a hunter, I always hope for a clean kill to minimize the suffering of the animal. I know I talk a lot of shit but I hope any rats I kill (and I hope there are many) that they don't suffer. Theres no pride in that but ya gotta protect the crops that put food on the table.salsalady said:Glue traps are messy
Shooting is messy
Live traps...where the live animal caught in the cage must be dispatched....aka...killed....
We went into a job where the owner had a bad mouse problem. Into the basement and the glue trap had 3 mice on it. One was still wiggling.
Killing in any form of any thing is messy.
Funny cuz thats exactly what I was doing. No rocking chair though. Stayed up til 1 a.m. listening to those bastards scurry in and out of the plants. Too dark to see any of them though. Had ol trusty in one hand and a beer in the other. Got a little drunk lolMuckyai said:I had envisioned Edmick sleeping in an old rocking chair hugging a pellet gun out in his corn patch last night.
Set up a spotlight with a red filter over it. Most nocturnal pests aren’t scared away or bothered by red light. Also, more pellet gun may be required.Edmick said:Funny cuz thats exactly what I was doing. No rocking chair though. Stayed up til 1 a.m. listening to those bastards scurry in and out of the plants.

For now. People are still setting off fireworks from the 4th so I could probably get away with a couple rounds hahaskullbiker said:Can you shoot that in the state you live in without going to prison?

I'm going to try that next. That's my bar soap of choice so I have a bunch of it. I just put out a ton of traps tonight so I'll see if I can snuff some first before I try that.skullbiker said:Get a block of bars of the Irish Spring original fragrance soap and take a cheese grater and make it into flakes and spread it around the garden or areas that you dont want them to be in. I have used this stuff for years to keep the deer out of the garden and the mice out of the cars. They navigate somewhat by smell and the soap will screw that up for them and they will generally stay away from it.
