Jim, Just got an update,”rain helped but the potential for injury has increased with slippery conditions and unstable standing timber” They are cautiously evaluating the fire. They have 146 people on ground crews and a dozen smoke jumpers on this fire, with 8 air tankers, 2 heavy helicopters, 4 bulldozers and 12 fire engines. Safety is their priority, which I agree with. Not sure what is going on with the other, much bigger fire.Could the smoke mean that the rain is putting out the fires? We can hope.
Have you tried cheese? It always works for us.Apparently the mice in my house require the culinary details of your recipe. I used only smooth peanut butter and the mice don't go for it. I put out a piece of bagel next to the mouse traps fitted with the peanut butter. This morning all the bread is gone and the peanut butter hasn't been touched, proving that there are still mice in the house.
So, I will be using cheese again.
That's good. One mouse can cause a lot of damage.It turns out that apparently we had only the one mouse in the house that the trap caught using cheese. I've been leaving bread out next to the trap every day and three days in a row it along with the food in the trap has been left untouched. So, I think our rodent problem is at least temporarily solved.
