We live in the woods. We have neighbors but we can't see them and only hear them when they are shooting. Lots of critters move through our woods and we see deer, turkeys, black bears, squirrels, grouse, hawks,and rabbits on a regular basis. We found we had a problem in the house with mice about a week ago. I don't make it a practice to kill critters unless I am going to eat them so I have several Hav a Heart live traps. I set the small one and baited it with peanut butter. Caught the first mouse and took it about fifty yards along a ridge and released it. The next day I had another mouse and released it in the same place. Had another mouse the next day and took it up the hill to my studio and released it. After the forth day with a mouse in the trap we figured they were just following me back the house and coming back in. My other Lucy then took over the mouse releasing and after driving 1/4 mile for four days in a row to take the mice out of our woods the mice problem as finally gone away. For a while there I was going to color the mice tails with a marker to see if we were just recycling mice. I think the little beady eyed fur bags had me going for a while there.
