The other day I blew the redwood leaves off my house roof and made this mess on the ground that is a fire danger to the house.
Next I got the tools out and measured and cut some fence wire to wire off a small enclosure in the chicken pen for the rat bait that the little chicks can’t get into. I got that installed and did some chair hopping.
The afternoon was taking up chair hopping around the yard and cooking up something to eat.
I was thinking of going for a dirt bike ride up into the hills just before dark so I did some more chair hopping waiting for the sun to go down behind the hills to the west of me before setting off on that ride.
Here’s the new enclosure I put the wire around today to keep the checks out of the rat bait so I can leave the bait out longer so the rats can eat more of it and I don’t have to mess with it late at night.
The rats didn’t take too long to find it. As you can see the rats are still healthy and like the bait.. The rats seem to like open containers more than things that are closed up that might seem like more of a trap to them so they are very cautious on closed or covered stuff.
This setup should work much better than my other setup. We’ll see.
