Squirrels and other unwanted Visitors
As some of you might know, I have a barn on my property that I have a country shoppe in, Vintage Chics Resale. Right now it looks like a storage unit or maybe even a room from that show, Hoarders. Because it is not currently heated, it has been pretty much closed for the winter and whatever I have picked-up over the last few months has just kinda been tossed inside. So the other day after crawling over some of the stuff, I was finally in the middle of the shoppe. As I am standing there looking at the mess I had made I started to notice that there seemed to also be a mess that I know I did not have any part in making. There was a smashed religious figure on the floor, which I was not happy about at all!
As I stood looking around I saw even more things knocked over and broken. A vase, a swan, a few dishes, etc. There were also quite a few things knocked over but not damaged. Then I saw the real damage! As I walked closer, I just couldn’t believe I was actually seeing what I saw.
It looked like a Beaver had been visiting me! And a very hungry one at that! These wood chips are from one of my shoppes front windows.
When I first moved in to this house, it had been vacant for over a year and we had squirrels living in a side wall, we got them out of there and they decided to move to the other side of the house behind a gutter area. It took a long time to get rid of them! I am NOT a fan of squirrels, that’s for sure and it looks like they have come back to haunt me again! It might be time to call Precision Wildlife Services!
