No one likes to think of mice or rats being in the house. (Well, except those rat loving friends of mine. They love their little pets but that’s a different breed of rodent.)
It can be a little disconcerting when opening electrical panels and finding live mice inside. Not quite so disconcerting is the one that’s been there for awhile, such as the one in the picture below.
That’s one of several reasons the openings in the electrical panels are supposed to be covered.
It doesn’t bother me quite so much when they are in the propane tank lid outside!
