It all started because the ground hog is back and the hole has nearly doubled in size. Remember Phil? So we called a rodent guy and he set some traps. Well, this morning we had a possum in the trap next to the ground hog hole and no ground hog. Clever rodent.
There had been evidence of critters -- probably raccoons -- in our garage (I'll spare you the details), so the rodent guy set traps there too, which meant in addition to the trapped possum, we had a skunk and a rat greeting us this morning. It gives me the shivers just thinking about it. We keep our garbage cans in the garage but they don't have lids, so we need to get heavy duty cans that won't attract wildlife and we need to plug up the holes where they are evidently getting through.
These are the things no one tells you about when you buy a home.
