What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Moles bite. Hard.

I curse the creatures who steal from my garden and spoil my hard work.

And then...

I get them face to face and turn all mushy.

First a woodchuck.

Now a mole.

Only this time, the "sweet little thing" turned out to be vicious.

I was never more thankful for having fabric between myself and a creature before. Don't let that face fool you....Moles sure can BITE!

We're in the midst of racoons and a coyote going after apples at the moment. (We can't eat the apples)

Just talking with a relative the other day about moles! Supposedly a stick (not chewed!) of Juicy Fruit Gum down in the hole, (then cover it back up)will "gum up their insides". I don't know if it works, but cheap enough to give it a try! They really are quite cute, though! My cat catches and kills the ones we have.

Yikes. Do you have to get a rabies shot from mole bites?

Rebecca said...

No worries Hollace~ it didn't bite ME. It bit the towel I was holding it with, with such a vengeance that it would dangle upside down as I held the towel. When it let go, it met its demise.

I will think twice about scooping up moles next time.
