|While we were away, it seems the moths have been enjoying themselves. We're not yet sure where they are coming from, but both of the traps that we'd put out the last time we were here are just about full, and there are more in the air. From our reading online, these seem to be pantry moths, about 1 cm long, and shaped like a thin arrow. We scrubbed down the kitchen last week to try to get rid of them, but they're definitely still around. They are generally attracted to grains and such, but interestingly there really isn't any food in the house right now (except for all the cereal, etc. that I just bought at Costco, which I'm keeping safe in the car). I'm going to get a couple more traps tomorrow then try to find out where they are coming from.
Yup, that was a mouse. While I'm no expert, I'd say it's dead. I still decided to walk over to the Fresh Grocer to buy some air freshener, but I'm hopeful that things will improve now that he/she is gone.
Remembering that our last trip ended with the placement of a contraption in the corner of the basement to collect the incoming rain water, I went down expecting to find a few inches of water in the bucket.
