Chipmunk Update

The chipmunk is deceased and is no longer eating my madder root, bran, or cochineal bugs! Oh and it's safe to say the the organic soy beans are safe as well now, as am I!!! No more jumping chippies from a corner!

Thursday evening I discovered that I did indeed have a chipmunk in my basement and subsequently my wet studio.  The little bugger has now met his maker.  How can I justify this you ask? Easily they carry rabies in addition to three different forms of the plague, that's how and this little bugger was so comfy living in my house that the pets (two cats and a dog) were treating it as if it was another family member.  And that had to come to an end!

I love nature as long as it stays outside of my house!

Rodents are a pain. Pay rent or get out... they are distroying my garden. Their holes are letting water get down in the basement because they burrow close to the foundation. There are too many of them this year! So any suggestions as to how to get rid of them would be great!
