Country Living Tips,

Bucket Trap

Tired of mice eating the insulation and making nests in your RV, boat or other stored goods?  This bucket trap is for you, if using over the winter, use antifreeze in the bucket, the cold liquid shocks them and it is a humane quick end.

KEEP AWAY FROM DOGS AND OTHER DOMESTIC ANIMALS, ANITFREEZE IS POISONOUS!, PUT IN A CLOSET OR OTHER AREAS VERMIN CAN GET TO BUT NOT PETS OR SMALL CHILDREN

Its Grant, we know this winter the power will fail. If you cannot run your furnace and lights your out of luck. Test your genny, get fuel safely stored and be prepared! Don't have a genny, BUY ONE, cheap insurance!


Even an inexpensive generator will keep the lights on and if large enough (+/- 2,000 watts), run the furnace.

A great way to make fire starters that work in tough conditions.  Editors suggestion: these work even better if you add chunks of dry wood, dry pine needles and larger shavings like chainsaw shavings instead of wood dust. They'll burn longer and hotter.




Check those smoke detector batteries and CO detectors, this is the season for these problems!
