Moles anyone?????~~~ Seriously!
I talking the rodent !..Anyone know how to get rid of one?
I have young one is in my house!..My kitties won’t go near it..At first we thougth it was a mouse..it’s not!
I’m scared to death.. my honey thinks it’s pretty funny..Except when I let out a blood curdling scream or stomp through the rooms like an elephant!
I have had those plug in things HSN sells in every room..Some places even 2 in a space!..They don’t work for country mice either..
Between the snow and now this "critter"..This N.Y. city girl that moved to the country is ready to go back to the city!
I feel like Lisa Douglas on Green Acres !!!!!!!!!!!!!!..My niece has been called me since we moved here..
Any serious constructive advice, anyone??
I am not being funny seriously. But! Can you still move back to the City?
I am horrified of Rodents!
I would have to have an army come and get rid of them if that did not work. I would leave!
Can you set a trap? :womanfrustrated:
I had a tree rodent, or a fruit rat, and also couldn’t use a ‘trap’, so went to Ace Hardware and got some kind of a rodent thing that looks like a flat plastic house with an opening just big enough for the critter, but the cats could never even get anything but a paw in it.
This house thing had a turn around inside and some "food" at the end of the turnaound for the rodent. It has a see-through top so you can see the little block of food, so you can also see if the critter ate any of it. The food doesn’t kill the rodent immediately, but DOES KILL IT 100%. Don’t ask. The process is gruesome, but will save you and your kitties from fear and possibly disease that the mole may carry.
The critter usually goes outside to die…or dies someplace else. I think the whole contraption cost something like 12.00?
Hope this helps…
Did those kitties bring it in? if not, you may have an opening somewhere that needs sealing. Before paying the critter guy, you could call and ask advice of your local government’s Animal Control people, a Cooperative Extension office, or local Humane Society. Good luck.
Don’t use poison bait!I lost a cat after it ate a poisoned mouse and it was awful,it is a terrible way to die!
Wow Snickersmom…I am so sorry for your loss. I know that I would die if anything happened to my cat. She said her kitties wouldn’t go near the mole, so thought it safe to suggest the house thing.
The critter I had was outside, and I remember being scared my dogs would eat the poison if I had bought the kind you sprinkle around, so thought it safer to do what I did. I just never thought about a cat eating a dead or poisoned mouse…but will now.
Again..I am so sorry this happened to you.
I had a rat chew through the bottom of my house and created a tiny opening under the kitchen cabinet. It came out of hiding in the light one evening and one of my dogs lunged at it. I refused to kill it or use poison because of the danger to my dogs and humane reasons. I got traps that look like metal cages. Set some peanut butter in them and it got trapped. It went crazy and I could not even tolerate the struggling. It was really scared. My friend who loaned me the traps came over and took the rat in the cage and released it in a huge field. I blocked the hole after I found it with towels. More rats just shredded them but they didn’t manage to come in. The hole got professionally sealed and end of story.
I did get the Bell and Howell plugin pest repellents. No further rodents and no spiders in the bathroom. I still had to spray because I suddenly found a bug in the kitchen right where the plugins were on the counter. I had to spray twice around the area and it worked. But I don’t think that the plugins are effective really since I got bugs when I stopped spraying. Maybe its helping in the bathroom but not worth it because it fails to do what it claims. I leave them in every room since I can’t return them but learned that I still have to use toxic spray so technically I could have saved 40 dollars. Besides a tablet that sits in my closet because the charger broke 2 times these were not as advertised.
Sorry about your fur baby. That’s heartbreaking.
Eww, I’d be terrified.
I have a plug in and it’s called Pest Offense from Walmart, have you tried that. I don’t have any pests so it seems to be working. It’s supposed to work for rats (never had one thank the good Lord) so maybe it would get rid of a mole. Failing that I’d be calling a pest control service.
Oh, 4kitties please be safe!:catlol:
Awwww…heck NO! -31 degrees????? Even a "Cousin IT" knows better than to leave. "IT" knows better than to bite the hand that is literally feeding it too….hahahaha…"FEEDING ‘IT’."..lol
"IT" probably thinks it’s vacationing on a tropical island about now. It’s even too cold for the thing to dig a burrow in the yard!!! Maybe it will hit the gym for some CARDIO?????
Let’s just hope it’s too scared to move wih Kitty #1 watching out for the critter.
How ’bout this one?
I HAVE A DANG MOLE HOLE IN MY FRONT YARD!!!! NO FLIPP’N LIE!!!!
I have desert landscape in my front yard and have been seeing that the gravel has been kicked up near my front patio. I could swear it was one of the neighbor’s outdoor cats so never really paid attention.
Wellllllllllllllllllllll….today I walked my puppy around the complex and when I passed in front of my home..saw two large holes in the gravel and dirt about 20 feet from the kicked up gravel.
i have MOLES!!!
COUSIN "IT" HAS LEFT YOUR BUILDING AND IS NOW OCCUPYING MINE!!!
He’s probably sunning himself thinking…"revenge is soooooo sweet" OMG…how do I get rid of this thing. Maybe I should call the landscape committee…lolol
Hahaha…I’m still laughing. Those tracks leading ‘away’ from the house? It’s just "Cousin IT" high tailing it to the mailbox, hoping to hitch a ride to someplace warmer! Trust me…if he isn’t picked up soon…and in my best Arnold Swarzeneger voice…"HE’LL BE BACK"!!
Oh…and my mole holes are indeed…GOLPHER HOLES! Cousin ‘IT’ has surely sent his whole family of first cousins over here…so TYVM ‘IT’. I called the HOA and they’re supposed to get the exterminater out here. Ugh…I don’t even want to be around when they exterminate the ‘family’.
All in all though, 4kitties…you are one lucky bride that you have a Honey to do the …’back forty’…lol. Seriously…the Estate gives new meaning to…’Honey Do’ list…lol
Btw…I’ve named the scampering squirrel who runs across my backyard to get to ‘who knows where’… Harvey!!! So perhaps you and I are distant relatives also?????
Will let you know how the Golpher situation is. Just keep a sharp eye out for the return of ‘Cousin IT’…and keep me posted…
