I've tried poison, traps, pouring diesel fuel
down their holes..... I've poured gasoline down their holes and exploded their tunnels.

But them little rascals keep coming back with vengence.

Last night while all you guys and gals were
partying, I thought of a new weapon of mass
destruction.

I dunno 56, I still like the gasoline, lots of ground shaking, flame shooting, high octane excitement. This way its like you're putting them to sleep, not blasting their little butts to kingdom come. Hope it works.

Kinda reminds me of when I was a kid around the farms in Canada. The farmers/ranchers would pay us $1 for each badger or gopher we would get. So we would put some smelly food by the hole, and sit on our horses with a lasso around the opening...and when they popped their heads up, BAM, we'd pull them out.

You guys are cruel. In Florida there are the notorious FireAnts. Alabama too. You take a shovel of one hill and put it on another and versa. It would start a jihad to protect the queens until there were none left.

I found a company on line once that filled the holes with propane and then exploded it. Quite interesting.

BTW Howie:

That's my favorite way of getting those little guys- when I had 'em, I found a rubber adapter that you could screw a hose onto, hook it up to a car's exhaust, and REALLY get 'em...worked EVERY time. I've also tried the pellets, gas, and there's no doubt a bunch of carbon monoxide is the best method...keep up the good work!!

This morning...... he had piled up a new very small mound.

So, I took the ATV out again and re-administered the punishment.
Nothing new tonight
