Intruder


Cute, but so not cool. Those bird feeders have lured a very much unwanted visitor to the backyard. We've had to trap some in the past when they came inside the crawl space in our house. So far this guy is staying outside and along the perimeter. How do you handle your unwanted guests?

BB Gun and hot pepper...Sad, but true!

I've only seen a mouse a couple of times years ago. I think the only way to really keep them away is to either have a cat or take the feeders down. Luckily our neighbor cats seem to keep them away now.

i usually just scream. when that doesn't scare them away, my cat does. she's an excellent mouser and the word is out. the mice just stay away.

Neighbor cats on the outside- my indoor cat on the inside! Usually this is all it takes :)

I was told to keep the feeders away from the perimeter of the house. So far I've not had a problem w/my feeders bringing mice in. We do have a pest company that comes out a couple of times a year to keep unwanted ants and camel crickets at bay....but they don't treat for mice and we aren't bothered. Have you tried moving the feeders a little bit further out? Jan
