Re: [nafex] kitty litter mouse skeedoo ?

Lucky, your 2 cents are worth a million. I presume the cat litter mouse 
repellant is a bad idea in an apple orchard thats dropping apples. Any clue 
how long lasting the baddies are in soil?

My orchard will be a few years to fruit bearing, and by then the trunks will 
be more mouse resistant, but I wonder if a winter application would endanger 
fall crops?

I picture only a few 'spoonfuls' near each tree so consider the clay 
addition minimal.  thanks, del
