We have hundreds of mice each day at our feeders. We've had pictures of over 30 at one feeder at a time. How can we get rid of them? They are taking all our corn.
Is poison ok to use around deer? How do you get rid of mice at a deer feeder?
We also have more mice & rats than you can shake a stick at. I don't think there is really a good way to get rid of them in S Texas. Some years are worse than others depending on where you are, but they are always there. I turn the feeders up so to give non-vermin a better chance of eating corn. I've seen close to 100 mice, rats, & rabbits show up under a feeder at one time. The only thing that might work is to sit in the off season with a Sega 12 gauge w/a drum mag loaded with bird shot from a ground blind and unleash hell as fast as you can pull the trigger. Have lots of snakes, hawks, owls, yotes, & cats, still have a mice problem. I bought a Judge loaded with bird shot to shoot them from the tractor while mowing. It's also pretty entertaining, just bring plenty of shells.
Never had this problem, but we have lots of coyotes. You ever have many snakes around your feeder? Had some friends that had that problem around San Angelo, but they said they always had to watch for rattle bugs when they fed their feeders.
