Mouses in Houses (and cars/planes/etc)

I keep Tom Cat blocks in the hangar and have had good success at avoiding the problem…..

…but last weekend I was changing the oil in Jamie’s car and also replaced the engine air filter…which reminded me that I didn’t recall when the last time I changed the CABIN air filter…so I pulled out the glove-box door, removed the cabin air filter hatch…. and saw it was back in May of ‘20 written on the filter.

So I pulled the 10-inch by 10-inch filter out to replace it…. as I already had a new one on-hand…. and found something blocking the hatchway. I couldn’t install the new filter for what looked like janitor-mop-threads, which some mouse had packed tightly onto the top/above the old filter. 8O

I had recently driven her car and thought the AC fan didn’t have as much air-flow as I’d remembered…. :twisted:

Guess I’d better put Tom Cat Blocks in the Garage as-well …
