and I wanted it, not for it's intended purpose, but to scare my garden nemesis, the vole. So I wanted to see if it worked on voles before I bought more of them. If it worked I wanted 10 of them.
It seemed innocent enough as I opened the box. A dozen metal parts to assemble, but then I started noticing a trend in the labels.It's good I don't have small children around because if I did I would definitely put this in their crib,
Why didn't it warn me about electrocution? Oh wait. it did.
If moles invade my attic, can this tool help me?
Oh, I guess so. But I am not qualified to put it up on the roof myself. I must hire a professional.
Now that I have it put together, I have no idea what it does that is supposed to scare a mole. The picture on the box shows little lines going into the ground, while a cartoon mole appears to float in space, but one assumes it is burrowing away in fear for it's life. A burrow is apparently too hard to draw. I must conclude those scary lines are the symbol for sound.
The scale of the blades compared to it's height, (nothing like the illustration) makes me wonder if it is actually a "mole chopper".
Well, whatever the scary thing is about this gizmo, I hope it is scary enough to keep the voles at bay. That would make me happy. I'm tired of pulling hollow beets out of my garden.
I'll just make sure not to weed that bed on a windy day or I could suddenly have more in common with Picasso than the fact that I am a painter.
