There has been a bunch of noise in my upstairs bedroom wall for the past two weeks.  Scratching, tapping noises.  I was so afraid that I had major rat problems.  Then I thought it had to be something else, since I only heard the noise during the day, but not at night.  Maybe it's squirrel?  Then the other day I noticed all the pink stuff in my front yard which turned out to be insulation.



I went around the house to see if I could see an opening in the roof where animals could get in.  That's when I noticed the gap in the siding in the front of the house.  It can't be more than maybe two inches.



Then I caught the rat bastard coming out of the opening.



Soon as I get time, I'm going to climb up in the attic to see if I can block the opening.  I don't know if she is building the nest outside or in my attic.  I'm assuming on the outside since she's stealing my insulation and dropping it out in my yard.  Sneaky wench!

While I was checking out the roof I noticed that I'm growing maple trees up in my gutters.  I hope I can find the business card of the guy that cleaned it out last year


It's always something!

Meanwhile, I have a new co-worker in training.  Hopefully my schedule will go back to normal in another week or so.

  5. I kept hearing scritching up in my attic, too...got 2 havahart traps--one mouse and one squirrel sized, and have trapped a mouse a day for about 2 weeks...I have a hoarder living next to me, so I am sure the supply of mice will be endless...wonder if birds like chunky peanut butter, too, hahameow! Yeah, those gutters need some work, lol.
