Completely Off Topic ??

I keep my tractor in my shed. Toady I brought it around to the garage
to change the blades and noticed lying on the floor was a tiny little baby
mouse.
After further inspection I found a nest under the flywheel cover.

Is there anyway I can keep this from happening?

Install rat/mouse traps....... throw down poison pellets. Move back to the city and exchange mice for rats!

I use those sticky traps and drop a little piece of cheese in the center..Then see how fast you catch the furry little pest..


What kind of tractor is it?
