Mice have found a way to our sweet potatoes in the last week. We are very careful about keeping all food contained in vermin-proof containers, however they are quite smart. As we are in a national park and can’t go about dealing with the mice like we would at home we have had to devise a humane trap, or rather Desmond has. It is quite ingenious. He has used a tin can, sticks, string and used tire. When the mouse goes in the can to eat peanuts attached to a string it snaps shut keeping it contained until Desmond can release it far away from camp. So far it seems to have worked. We don’t have any mice at the moment. Hopefully they aren’t devising a plan to work together to get to the nuts without getting trapped
