    I don't think you are ever over predators. You can get rid of some and others will move in to fill the void.

    Rubbing alcohol will cut it too....wash your hands and arms to wash the plant oils off, let the alcohol evaporate wipe hands on paper towel and ya can sink wash with soap and water then...the oils will float and spread with water, but the alcohol breaks them down....it has worked on us and the grand kids without a hitch....and many have "sensitivity" issues....:)

    One thing about it Mike....I never get tired of "seeing" your place there, either.....and I really appreciate ya "sharing" so much here, with us!!.....:thumbsup

    OK, that is downright scary!!! Which way do you run when it starts to move?

    Hmmm, I wonder if they can get through the 1" squares because they can get a claw or tooth grip on it? I think I would wrap the entire run in 2x4 knotted wire with a band of the 1" stuff low to keep coon paws out.

    It started to rain every time I went out to work so I said to heck with it and we went to Kroger. On the way home we spotted a white raptor of some sort perched on a power pole. I'm not finding anything resembling this bird (at least not in Tennessee).

    Could be a hawk that is leucistic?

    That is definitely possible. I'm finding nothing that's all white.

    Me neither. While looking for all white bird of prey, I did come across Grey Goshawks but they are not found here in the United States. They are found in Tasmania and Australia. Grey Goshawks are the only bird of prey that are all white. Learn something new everyday.
