I have to wonder what bats must think, when we try to get rid of bats with tools that were meant for playing sports or cleaning the house.
Look, I know that sometimes entire bat colonies get in an attic, or bats roost in a chimney or people have bat colonies around their house. […]
People of the world, we earthworms implore you to get rid of moles. It’s well documented that we earthworms are your friends. We do not carry diseases or parasites, as other creatures who roam your backyard do. We do not bite. We do not scratch. We don’t even bother your precious pets. We don’t […]
Tears drip from my eyes, and I can not stop laughing as my roommate, Joe, stammers on about getting rid of raccoons. The memory of his little-girl scream, the shocked look on his face, and the way he wind-milled back out of our fireplace makes me laugh harder every time I think about it.
