Reminder: Rat poison is wildlife poison! Raptors, coyotes, bobcats, and other predators provide excellent pest control. Ingesting rat poison will either kill them or severely weaken their immune system, leaving them susceptible to mange and other diseases.
Skip rat poison! Save wildlife!
Thanks to Jake Dailey for this timely nudge. Owls have been who-whoing & screeching most evenings around our place, taking up the slack as the aging resident mouser seems to have retired.
From Native Soil Farm, Ben Maestas shares: Thank you Andrew and Mary for lighting up the day!!!
Loved having the whole family out! I especially loved precious moments with young ones eager to be a part of the experience!!!
