Steve and Kim-
I have lived here for 5 1/2 years with only trouble last summer. My basement has been cemented (a huge brick bar is down there from the frat days..) and my Dad had some work done in that area. I do not know exactly what but the part that is still dirt has been covered with new black plastic and a new door installed to that area. I put some plain rat poison down there and haven't heard them again. (My college age son said he heard them over Thanksgiving but "forgot" to tell me!) I will go to Mize and purchase said bar..Thanks!
PS> I had a racoon who took up residence in my garage the first winter I lived here...I wasn't parking in there so I had NO idea. My dog would periodically go nuts at the back door...I thought she was just getting old..but the racoon was using its "hand" to OPEN her dog bin by the back door and eat her dog food! I moved the food inside and paid someone to trap it humanely..needless to say...it was HUGE! He took it to the wildlife people who released it in the woods. (Might I add..it was the meanest creature when captured...it spit, clawed and hissed at me!) Thanks again for the information.
