Sploosh, drip drip, shooooosh. I looked around and couldn’t believe the damage I saw swirling in the water around me, all thanks to a beaver dam on the stream running through my property.
I’d bought the small place because of its idyllic location. It wasn’t a mansion, by any standards, but it was beautiful; rather […]
Armadillo eating a worm after it has dug a hole in your yard.(Artwork by Sharon Davis. Contact us for her contact info.)
“Bad dog! Bad dog!” She waved my finger in my face, frowning and angry, and I had no way to tell her the holes in the yard were there because an armadillo […]
Your typical, yard ruining, mole.(Artwork by Sharon Davis. Contact us for her contact info.)
I do all the work, swimming through the dirt to create all my mole tunnels and surfacing all over the place, carefully displacing dirt to make mole hills. So, why is it that voles think they can just move on […]
I thought gopher holes were bad enough, but a dead gopher in the flower bed is pretty nasty. It’d be great news if it were the only gopher I’ve been fighting, but I’ve been fighting a losing battle with gophers for about two years running, and I know there’s a lot more out there than […]
All right, some bizarre or perverse people will do some really weird things with a dead squirrel, in the name of “good, not-so-clean” fun. They’ll put them in shadow boxes, stuff them and set them up in little scenes, strap them to the hood of their car, take funny pictures, throw them at other people, […]
“John, we’ve got to get someone who knows how to get rid of feral cats out here as soon as possible if we’re going to have any chance of selling the house.”
“I just wish your Dad never fed them. They just keep coming back and breeding right there on the property.”
“I know, I […]
Ah, night, the perfect time for me to come out and cause all kinds of porcupine problems. I’m really a very gentle creature, despite the quills, but for some reason, people don’t like me very much. I think I’m pretty cute, with my little precious face and my tiny little paws, and my quills all […]
Nah, we don’t have a feral cat problem, do we? I mean, sure, I’ve noticed a lot of feral cats wandering the neighborhood and the farms around here, but that’s just nature, right? They stick to the farm and get rid of the rodents in the area, and we’re all good.
Okay, sure, sometimes there’s […]
It’s unbelievable, this opossum problem we have in this home! I mean, I’m the alpha dog here, the top Chihuahua, and this, this opossum comes strolling into my home again and again and helps himself to the fruit lying on the counter. I’m not even allowed on that counter top, how dare he?! And I […]
Squirrel on a branch, waiting to come inside.(Artwork by Sharon Davis. Contact us for her contact info.)
I just moved into my apartment about two months ago, and now I have squirrel problems.
All of a sudden, I have a new roommate who’s just driving me crazy. He comes and goes whenever he pleases. […]
