2013 Varmint Report
I live on a 1/3 acre lot that includes my house & garage in a residential neighborhood less than 10 minutes from down town Columbia.
Using 5 live traps, augmented by an air rifle, this is what I bagged in 2013 vs 2012.
Squirrels 54 vs 21
Possums 13 vs 6
Rabbits 7 vs 4
Raccoons 1 vs 1
Cats 2 vs 1
Except for the coons and cats, this was more than double the count for 2012. Since I only added 1extra trap during the year, I really can't explain such an increase over 2012.
Maybe it was caused by global warming. LOL
