I HATE them. My barn is falling down on one side because of their incessant mining under the foundation. All the mulch and flowers I planted 2 weeks ago around my house are eaten down to the stub (except the foxglove. Too bad they didnt eat that too. Its pretty, but fatally toxic) And now, when I got home this morning after a quick run to the store for some coffee, there was one of the little buggers just sitting on my patio eating the flat of veggies I just bought. I was gone not 10 mins. And that jerk ate EVERYTHING except the tomato plants. GRRRRRR!!! So after I saw him run around the house to dive into one of his many holes, I saw that he ate my basil from the herb garden in one of my raised beds. ALL of it. 10 basil plants, and all my dill too. There goes my pesto.... I am officially declaring war on them. WAR! Going to get the .22 and sit in waiting. So mad.
