One Man’s Pest is Another’s Gorgeous Rattlesnake

It’s hard to appreciate wildlife¬†when it’s eating your food or giving you asthma. Michelle Niedermeier of the Penn State Cooperative Extension’s Integrated Pest Management program joins Billy and Tony to talk about how to¬†get along with our non-human neighbors without poisoning everyone. Billy joins Bryan Hughes of Rattlesnake Solutions in Phoenix, AZ to learn about how to make peace with urban rattlesnakes. Last, Billy traps much meeker quarry (mice) in his kitchen, and Lawrence Crawford helps us wax poetic about mice (in Scots, so read along and click on the unfamiliar words) with the immortal Robert Burns.
