  I saw one when rabbit hunting about 15' up in an ash sapling almost to the top.  A mystery to me why he was up there.  I've seen them in the shop from time to time and they are always welcome.

Royalty wore ermine trimmed garments - weasels for the weasels.

Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be very much there to eat. Tree Squirrel's make for a very tasty meal and I would think one of those critters could also provide the same.

I came home one evening and the dog was throwing a fit. It had chased a weasel under the grating for the shop. I carefully extracted it, caged it, and took it to work the next morning. The container we used for storage of feed samples after analysis was plagued by mice. I introduced the weasel and the problem went away. Obviously he could get in and out of both  containers so kept them and the surrounding area rather clean of rodents.

It is rumored that just turning a ferret loose in a barn will leave enough smell residue to discourage the mice for awhile.

Might want to get your ferrets on the cheap aisle of the store, because getting one back in a barn might be tough. We caught five skunks in a feed barn in one trap, in one night. Crowded in that cage, and I approached it very carefully. The animal control guy that came for them just walked right up and hefted it to see what it weighed- then took off to his panel truck Shocked Tongue. Must have made it all right 'cause I spotted him at the bar a few days later with no smell coming from him. But, I was sure 'kerful'.

His nose must not work.  I can't even get within 100 yards of a skunk that hasn't gone off  Grin
