Additionally, there are many humane ways to solve problems with squirrels. Lethal control or trapping and relocating rarely (if ever) solve issues with "nuisance wildlife." They are generally attracted to food, water, or shelter... eliminate these, and they will move on or be less numerous. If you choose not to deal with the underlying attractant, another animal will merely fill the space of the animal you've killed or relocated.

Drowning any animal is not a humane form of euthanasia, and is therefore animal cruelty. This woman has since stopped this act as a result. If you must eat any animal, you owe it to them to kill it humanely. The animal is giving it's life to be eaten, at least have the compassion to not allow it to suffer.

For my spices, I just bought some small tin containers from Specialty Bottle. They have a bunch of different sizes, so you can pick based on what you use most (although we only keep small amounts of almost everything on hand to keep it fresh). Then I took some picture frames I wasn't using and cut cardboard to fit, then used spray adhesive to glue some felt down to it and put those in the frames. Then I backed each of the tins with a strip of velcro and wrote on the lids what was in them.

Turned out pretty well and was quite cheap! I can organize them in the different frames for quicker location... ie by letter or use (baking, etc).
