Mouse attack

April 4th, 2008 No comments

The snow in my front yard is almost gone.  It hasn’t snowed in a couple weeks, but the remnants of 100″ over the winter are still melting away.  As the ground is slowly revealed, I’m realizing it might just be better to have snow covering it instead.

I noticed a few streaks of torn up grass and dirt when the first hints of ground started to appear.  If anything, I thought it was just dirt separating as the melted snow eroded it.  I was told that’s not the case.  Apparently mice were busy under the snow all winter making those tracks.

Little mouse tracks here and there aren’t a big deal.  It happens, the grass will grow back.  But now I’m finding that the problem is really extensive in my front yard.  Not only are there many tracks under the snow, but there was also a huge network of tunnels in that snow.  Apparently they made a nest there.  There’s grass all over the place, turf dug up, and little clumps of dirt and grass made into nestballs of sorts.

That’s all well and good, too.  But then last night I found out one of those mice may have gotten into the house, specifically the basement.  Off to Home Depot I went (after Target, which didn’t have rodenticide devices).

I set the traps last night and they’re still empty this morning.  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

Snow Blows

This might be one of the more boring posts I’ve done, but here’s a video of me blowing snow at my house this past Sunday.  Exciting, right?  I hate snow.
