    Very true Rav

    Thanks fer helping put my mind to ease, in knowing.

    I have caught more a those nasty buggers than Id like

    Traps are 24/7 here

    Chickens even know what they are, and will not touch them. Thankfully.

    I even nail em to trees, fenceposts etc.

    Works great fer squirrel too

  4. yes it is a still air so the temperature is higher closer to the top you should be taking the temperature at the same place every time .

  10. ok Bubbles science lesson heat rises the temperature is hotter at the top of the still air and cooler closer to the bottom the temperature at the very top of the lid will be as much as 104 or 105 all the time . don't think you had a heat spike you raised the thermometer . don't do that its is bad center the eggs always how's the humidity today ?
