Tracking and Trapping

We've laid tracking tunnels around the school last Friday to see what pests are out there. These tracking tunnels had an ink strip on them for collecting foot prints and a dollop of peanut butter in the middle.

On Monday we collected them in to see if we had any footprints. They all had some!

We found hedgehog and mice/rat foot prints (Pretty hard to distinguish!)
Next thing to do is set traps in these locations for the mice and rats.

We also hung up our new nectar feeder that has a sugary syrup in it. (Brought it in for the storm passing through, but will have it back out there as soon as it passes.
