City Boy Meets Country Mouse

April 5, 2021: This morning I revived my gentler form of rat abatement at Hacienda Domínguez, by adding some more mint oil to the cotton balls I set about Casa Domínguez. According to the all-knowing Internet, rodents don't like the smell of mint, which happens to be one of my personal favorite scents. Albeit I'm using traditional traps too, this supplemental deterrent is more humane and accepting that when a city boy moves out to the country, he ought to respect the fact that is was the critter's turf first.
