Don’t most of God’s creatures serve some higher purpose? Bee’s pollinate flowers and give us honey. Beavers build dams and help to control floods. Don’t they? Bats consume mosquitos. Haven’t figured out what mosquitos contribute to the world order. Maybe that’s another post.
Why Mice? Rodents? Ever wonder about that? I mean, after all, what purpose do they serve? Sometimes I think God was either asleep at the wheel or maybe he just has a strange sense of humor.
The following info per the internet:
Even the smallest amount of mouse urine can trigger allergies, particularly in children because their immune systems are still developing. Mice spread disease through bite wounds and by contaminating food and water with their waste products. Mice can also spread disease thanks to parasites such as ticks, fleas and mites. These parasites bite the infected mouse and then spread the disease by biting humans.
Furthermore, mice are a primary food for SNAKES. Like RATTLESNAKES. So the primary function of SNAKES is to control Mice. Without Mice………there would be no need for SNAKES……….like RATTELSNAKES.
For the past few days we’ve been besieged by these creatures. They hide in the corners and come out at night. God only knows what they do during the day. Probably breed like rabbits.
And they scare my wife as they dash across the floor. (They don’t scare me…..I’m a guy)
They leave droppings around the rig and chew up wires, thus ruining electrical systems.
War has been declared. We’ve booby trapped our rig. We’ve placed 4 traps (2 types) + 4 trays of poison + 3 sticky trays (these are trays of super glue. We’ve snagged 2 mice in them thus far. The glue doesn’t kill them but they die of starvation. Their death throes are especially charming)
If only we could completely eliminate these furry little _ _ _ _ _ _ _ s.
God…………are you there? Let’s talk.
