I started collecting wood in November and this is the first sign of mice. I found him in front of my garage. The Fiancee freaked and said that the first sign of them in the house (i.e. the indoor cat goes nuts at night), the wood is gone...and thus the possibility of a stove. Here is my woodpile near the house (is it too close?): I guess on the positive side of things, the rat poison granules I put down underneath my wood racks is doing it's job....but I'm worried as I plan to collect twice this amount of wood and put one more row of wood closer to to the house before stacking it in the backyard. Is the answer just to keep the woodpiles populated with granules? Thoughts?
