. . . you buy a squirrel trap to use in your back yard.

Each summer we have noticed an increase in the squirrel population in our back yard, and this year we’ve felt like we’re being taken over by the little rodents.  Some afternoons our yard looks like the word got out on the squirrel hot line, “Party at the Butler’s,” and every bushy tailed rodent in the neighborhood has stopped by to play.  We’ve got nothing against squirrels, but they are damaging the trees, playing in our garden, AND eating our strawberries – a precious commodity.

Since we don’t have dogs to scare them away, and we don’t have guns to eliminate them, Don found a solution at Home Depot and came  home with the Havahart squirrel trap.

So simple to bait

Success!

Poor little guy got tricked! And he was not happy about that.

Don took him for a ride way out in the north country and set him free.

Do you think he can find his way home?

Have you ever heard of a homing squirrel?

Three trapped – probably 5-7 more to go.

But no squirrel stew around here.  We’re not that rednecked!

  1. I’m so glad you’re not making stew! Have you ever thought about canning it? PLEASE don’t tell me about it if you do! Good luck!
