Unfortunately, there is no way I can get around keeping them in their traps over night. They only come out during the day now, so they will be forced to stay in the traps, in my garage for two full night. I know...that sucks!
I plan on picking the traps up next Tuesday (after the holidays) and trapping as many as I can that week. Plus, I want to trap these 2 big black males that come on my porch late at night. They seem to be the big bullies in the hood, so I hope I can get them neutered.
So, my total costs so far will be $150 for traps and at least $520 for spaying/neutering. That is not including all the food that I have been buying.
