The Body Count Is Rising

by Dave

Make it 5-and-a-half. I got one the other day, two yesterday, and two tonight. The fraction is the result of a mouse that’s trapped. While setting the traps in the basement this evening, I heard scratching above me. There’s a U-shaped curve in our duct-work. One of the mice must have gotten into the system somehow, but now it’s stuck in that curve and can’t crawl out. I guess I’ll have to do a little disassembly once the scratching stops.

Now that the problem has grown from one to many, I’ve implemented some new strategies. I’ve added more traps, poison, and the garage classic: the 5-gallon bucket. Hopefully we’ll go several days without incident so Megan will be a bit more at ease once I leave for hunting.
