Good news is they haven’t chewed their way in creating, damage to the building. No, instead they’ve found a way in through the vent at the peak of the roof. Or at least I think that’s where they’re coming in. I popped my head up into the attic this morning (I heard some scurrying going on) and saw a mouse crawling along that vent.
Of course, I can’t close off the vent entirely, but I’ll likely install some sort of heavy gauge mesh along the opening. Home depot, here I come.
The other option is to set out some poison or some mouse traps. Neither is a particularly savoury option, but better than listening to them scurry around in the ceiling all winter – especially if I wind up trapping a few inside when I put up the mesh.
Wonder why this is the first year they’ve chosen our house as their home? Anyway, I’m gonna add this to the countless reasons why I hate winter.
