Well some of you may recall the sensation of me finding traps and toy mouse when I replaced my appliances. Also my relief of not finding anything that indicated there were any current squatters.
WRONG! Today I heard something by my backdoor where I have been storing folded boxes and some dog biscuits. Then I saw the droppings....on one of my plastic containers so I know that wasn't from before I moved in. They/it must be a new resident as I haven't detected any of the usual tell tale smell (the one other time I had this problem I could smell it long before finding any droppings).
Boy can my old car go when I need it to. Straight to HD which was still open and I came home with a couple of those sonic things. One for the house and one for the garage and I may go and get another for the basement. I hope to hear something dragging it's bags out the door. Those things better work. So far the dog isn't bothered so that's good, but I don't want to be finding any more of that dropping stuff around or it'll mean going for the poison.
HD guy told me a lot of people have come in the last week for mouse stuff. Must be a sign of fall coming.
Guess I have to clean that area right out and be more careful with the dog treats and any other crumbs I normally don't worry too much about.
FYI, I noticed HD is selling a garden spike that is that sonic thing too, solar powered, and rated to keep squirrels away.
