dead critters

Many of the poisons are designed to make the critter very thirsty before it dies, therefore it leaves to find something to drink (if it finds something to drink in the john, disposal is easy).

Pete and not very thirsty Rats

Rodents, Disposing of poisons

A mouse once chewed through the 110 wiring on our Airstream during the winter. When we hooked it up in the spring to prepare for a trip, the wiring caught fire. (Family bonding through TT use, I gotta million stories!) Whatever method you choose to prevent or dipsose of them, rodents are best prevented from keeping house in your TT. The only method I've found that works well is trying to seal them out. They will chew through many materials, of course, but I have found that they don't like to chew metal strips. At home I use steel wool and caulk around pipes to keep them out.

Someone asked about disposing of antifreeze, etc. A general rule of thumb is that if it is toxic it doesn't belong in the sewer. Most sewers empty directly into streams and rivers. Those that don't must be treated before reaching streams and sewers. That stuff is hard to get out of the water! Best to dispose of it through your local hazardous waste disposal program (call the county).

(Be forewarned: This message may not be terrifically tasteful.) If you leave rat/mouse poison in the trailer, doesn't the little critter who eats it die in the trailer? And then come spring when you open the trailer up...well you know. Phew! And that's a smell that's hard to get rid of.
I think the premis is that they get real, real thirsty and go off looking for water which causes them to explode internally.
Gruesome yes, effective yes.

In respect of Pete and the ladies I think we should hereafter refer to these critters as "unwanted guests".

Augie,
I've done a search on snow snakes and can't find any. Is this a Co. thing like snipe? :)
:ola
I KNOW! IKNOW!
I don't know about Augie's Colorado Snow Snakes - I hate/am terrified of all snakes of the reptile variety. But around here snow snakes are not to be feared but marvellled at. They are used in native Indian winter competitions. The snow snake is a long wooden stake or a smooth spear.It is flung down into a long prepared trough in the snow. If the temperature is right and the snow is the right type the snake can go a good part of a mile.- I don't know the record. Maybe you can find some info from The Six Nations Ontario web-site.
Most years lately the weather is so unpredictable just when they get the track done, we get a warm spell.
I most sincerely hope THIS was what Augie meant or at least he was yanking your chain.
Jean
