Living in our Journey is very nice, with all the comforts we could possibly want (except a dishwasher, I have to stand in for that). Sometimes, though, little things annoy us, like bugs.
We've carried on fights to get rid of stink bugs, palmetto bugs and most recently lady bugs that have wanted to share the good life with us. It took a while, but we overcame them and ended up victorious.
The other night I was up reading in the wee hours, a book on my Kindle I just couldn't put down. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw some movement. Another palmetto bug? Nope, it appeared too big and moved too fast to be that. What was it, my imagination?
We got a positive answer the next morning when Marti found bunches of torn toilet paper in a pile in one of the three drawers under the bathroom sink. Evidently whatever had built that pile had pilfered the paper from extra rolls kept in the bottom drawer.
Yep, using my investigator talents, I came to the conclusion we've been invaded by mice! Telling Marti the results of my poking around resulted in her practically jumping into my arms and clinging to my neck like a second skin. For some reason, she's terrified of the little buggers.
We went off to the store and armed ourselves to the teeth with anti mouse products.
Placing the devices strategically around the Journey resulted this morning in: Mice - 0, Me - 2.
Looking around I found they sneaked in through the wet bay, climbing in through the hole around the sewer hose. I rectified that highway with some steel wool.
After cleaning out the nest in the bathroom drawer before heading out this morning, coming home this afternoon revealed the start of another nest. The war isn't over yet, but I'm sure we'll get them all. With fresh traps out and the entrance sealed, the mice's time is limited.
And Marti won't have to sleep with one eye open. ;c)
