Mice, mice and a fox.

Has anyone noticed small mice around the neighborhood. I saw a dead small mice in my alleyway next to my garage. I also noticed one on the sidewalk on our street. On an unrelated note, I also heard that someone saw a fox/coyote in the undeveloped area where the old runway is.

There are, as Carl Sagan would say, billions and billions of mice in the undeveloped area. I wonder if some of the new construction has sent them ruuning into the neighborhood.

As far as the coyote sighting, I thought I might have... possibly.... maybe... seen one a couple of years ago in the undeveloped area, but didn't get a good enough look to confirm it.

We live close to the recently mowed area facing Airport and I assume the combination of mowing and cold weather has sent the rodent population on an Exodus of some sorts. We have lived here for three years now and our first sign of obvious rat or mouse visitors appeared on our side porch Tuesday afternoon. Based on the evidence left behind I am betting on it being the larger of the two evils. All stray cats are welcome for the next few days.

I live on Antone near Threadgill. Ever since our neighbors sadly moved away and took their fabulously predatorial cat Slinky with them, we've been seeing mice. With the infrastructure and new housing across the street, our garage has become some sort of mouse refugee center. I got traps today.

As for fox/coyote sightings: I don't know of any coyotes. BUT I have definitely seen the fox several times, or several foxes one time each. Every time, it was just before dawn and where the big senior construction is, on Berkman right there, or in the park there at Manor and Berkman. I've seen it so often that when I pull onto Berkman from Manor and it's in the middle of the night, I go really slow so I don't smack it. I've gone walking a lot on the old airport roads behind the new construction and I've never seen the fox during the day.

On an unrelated note, the UT practice field wild parakeets were hanging out again in that same area the other day.

For a while we had some mice in our backyard. Which I thought was odd since we have two big dogs and a cat, the dogs would go crazy trying to get under the deck and behind the rain barrel at the mice.

I didn’t want the mice to make their way into the house, so I looked online for things that mice dislike, and read that they dislike both dryer sheets and cloves. Maybe this is weird, but I made little satchels using dryer sheets, cloves and a rubber band and put them around the backyard along our house – figured it couldn’t hurt. The mice seem to have gone away from our backyard, not sure if it is a coincidence or if my weird little satchels worked.

Mice
by Sabine Romero on December 16th, 2013

Yesterday I noticed a blur of motion as something ran into one of round holes at the base of the rock work on our porch outside. I assume it was a mouse. What happens when you have mice inside your rock work? I don't want to block the hole until I'm sure there are no mice inside. Any suggestions? Years ago, I did stuff every rock work hole with steel wool, but that has clearly been pulled out of this opening.
