Had squirrels eat my mainsail
in New Bern, NC. And we had rats get on the boat
while in dry storage
. Neither one was good, the rats were worse.
I listened to a webinar on sails
recently. The sailmaker
started the video talking about rodents. He claimed that rodents are the most common cause of sail damage.
We have a hunting cabin
. Moth balls work
pretty well for both mice and squirrels. Now BEARS, they love the pink anti-freeze, every time we had some stored outside, like in a Coleman cooler, they would find it and we would find empty bottles with tooth marks. And they either dump over the water
barrels or they try to climb on the roof.
