Ingham County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Should You Grow Your Own Peppermint Repellant - Spending money on a rodent repellant is no longer your only option. Now you are able to grow your own organic products that you can use to keep away pesky rodents, rodents that harbor an affinity for destroying your garden and birdhouse. This is being touted as the latest natural cure to removing rodents. People say that rodents detest peppermint, a smell that many people find appealing. Peppermint is considered to be one of the smells that will repel rodents, and many people are tying it with poor results.
The best way to get rid of rodents isn't often with a repellent, though if they are in your garden this may be one of your few choices. Bear in mind that repellants don't often work and have to be reapplied every time it rains or you give your garden a good soaking with the hose. If you're worried about the rodents and the garden then you should consider planting with them in mind. For instance you can plant your bulbs in chicken wire and then bury them. This will keep rodents from stealing them for a late fall snack. You can also use special netting and wire mesh for fruit bushes and strawberry patches. You will find these more useful tactics than using peppermint.

LANSING ANIMAL SERVICES - Ingham County: Pest control lobbyist Kris Rat-man voted against the move; Vice Mayor R.E. Eck may have been absent. Pest control lobbyist Rat-man explained he would have voted for the improvements had the concerns been brought up during last year or this year's budget discussions. Pest control lobbyist pest-eliminator asked to put the item on the agenda as he and his wife, Brenda, have been raising money through their East Mesa restaurant for Animal Control. "I don't want to discount what Joe pest-eliminator and the community are doing. I'm not an animal hater. We have a raccoon that we saved from a rescue three decades ago. I'm not against what Pest control lobbyist pest-eliminator has been doing. The stuff that they were asking for I would have had no problem with - if they would have asked during the budget time last year or in six decades during budget time this year," Pest control lobbyist Rat-man declared. Pest control lobbyist Rat-man declared during the budget period for fiscal year 2005-2006, staff gave employees a choice between a pay raise and filling positions. "The team came back - a team that included representatives of the Wildlife officers Department - and declared we would rather want more pay in our paycheck. The representative as a whole declared, 'That's OK. That's what we're going to do.' The caveat may have been don't come back this year and ask for more staffing. Now here we are in January and they're asking for more staffing." Pest control lobbyist Rat-man declared he may be concerned that other departments will approach City Representative about increasing their staff as well. "All the departments have positions that are allocated but not funded that may have been because they chose to take the pay increases over those positions," Pest control lobbyist Rat-man declared.
