    hehehe, you already know the answer to that one PAK.

    It's bad aroma therapy. Powdered Coyote Urine would make the squirrel's or other rodents...most animals actually think that a coyote was in the area marking it up.

    Squirrels and Coyote's don't mix. Well they do, but not in that happy bubble gum sort of way.

    Just buy a Coyote for a whole yard.

    The shake-away makes them think a predator is in the area. Note: IT HAS NO SMELL DETECTABLE BY HUMANS but it keeps the critters away! As I said before, I won't be without it. I live where I couldn't use traps or poison without getting in serious trouble from the townehouse management. Only one maintenance worker knows how I solved the problem. Management is just happy I'm not complaining this year because I nearly broke my ankle in a mole hill last summer.

    I am a writer and WOULD NOT post anything about this product if it didn't work so well. Look on the Maine site and you can see a plastic container for holding the scent in a specific location. I have one of those stuck in the middle of my 20 ft square butterfly garden. I want butterflies but don't want mice/other rodents that close to my house.

    I will hang bags of it just under the doorjamb this winter to keep the mice from deciding my house would be a nice warm place for the winter with plenty of bird-scattered birdfood to eat too!

    Supposedly an inch wide line would protect 10 feet (5 on either side of line) of land. I've drawn a line between my townehouse and the townehouse on the other side of the lawn between the two sets of 8 townehouses. This kept the moles/voles away for 6 weeks last time! I just redid my lines last week because they are starting to tunnel again. I have 1 1/2 cans left so I can treat once more if I need to.

    I will also use this around my species tulips/miniature daffodils planted in containers so the squirrel doesn't dig up my miniature rock gardens this winter trying to get to those bulbs.

    That mom mouse wasn't being stupid...she was protecting her babies. It's a high priority for lots of animals, though I once read an interesting article that said earwigs protect their babies, too. Wolf spiders carry their babies around on their backs. Some fish carry their babies around in their mouths.

    Anyway, thanks for not killing the mice. It was very humane of you, and very honourable. I think mice are real cute, and they don't dare come into the house. Because I have 10 cats with nothing better to do, the lazy sods.

    Cool story! I love observing stuff like that and am a bit surprised that despite the obvious threat the mouse tried to move the babies. I know that with fish disturbance may cause them to eat the eggs/fry even if they would have cared for them(better food for them then food for someone else). Then again they will stand their ground against a human hand coming towards the fry too.
