Im not sure if anyone here has attempted this before or if it even makes any sense. I recently met some one who is into the maple syrup bussiness. He has several wooded areas where he has the maple trees tapped and through a series of hoses (quite lengthy) the sap is pumped to a central holding tank for collection. He told me that every year before the sap runs he goes out into the woods and makes repairs to the hoses caused mostly by squirrels with the accasional deer damage. It costed him between 5K to 6K in damage this year alone replacing about 1 mile of hose total. I would like to help him out with this problem. My question is this: do you think if a person set traps throughout the woods around late spring after the first litter leaves the nest and then again in late summer after the second litter leaves the nest (checking traps daily of course) could I catch enough of them to save him a consideral amount of money. He would be paying me for this service. Im just not sure how much yet. Im sure this would have to be repeated every year, but with that amount of money for repairs I might be able to make it worth his while. Or does this sound impossible?? Thank you
