Several found in birdhouse closest to Eddy Lake.
These mice have been chewing on the wood structure within the walls, and living in our attic. We tried to seal openings, and use live traps (they were too clever). At last, the best option seemed to be the snap traps. Here is one of 3 we did catch. That seemed to solve the problem (for now anyway).
body length = 101 mm
tail length = 76 mm
hind foot = 20 mm
ear = 15 mm
caught in garage
Total length: 182mm
body length: 100mm
Tail length: 82mm
One of a long string of casualties.
One in North bluebird box by Eddy Lake
Didn't get a picture of it. It ran off as I lifted the rotting cardboard. I might have gotten pictures of its tracks. I don't know but the pictures are under my observation labeled animals.
El ratón ciervo (Peromyscus maniculatus) es una especie de roedor de la familia Cricetidae originario de Norteamérica. Se extiende por toda Norteamérica a excepción del sudeste de Estados Unidos y el extremo norte del continente. Es un conocido portador de hantavirus, que pueden ser trasmitido a los seres humanos. Está estrechamente emparentado con el Peromyscus leucopus, el ratón de patas blancas.
