Provide hundreds of small mounds of insecticide treated cotton per acre for the mice to pull into dens.

ok, I'll bite. How?


One way of course would be to get Mim and her buds to reduce the deer pop to less than 10 per sq mile. Then these ticks would never be born. I think someone mentioned in another thread that around the Preserve the density may be more than 10 times that. That would be quite a bloodbath, and as a vegetarian I would need to look in quite another direction.

I think the birds are gone, I only see one or two around these days, and some big ugly vultures, and one woodpecker.

???Bring back the birds and stop the Chem-trails???

I was serious. It is a proven method but is so labor intensive that no one wants to tackle it. This breaks the life cycle of the deer tick at a much earlier stage.

Think of all the PLANTS you would be saving...that should assuage your guilt during the cull.

(First time I've ever used "assuage" in a sentence. Hope I spelled it right.)

Has this not been a most edifying week? crazy
