Bought a house in July and put traps in the attic, catched 4 mice in about 2 weeks, 3 I got quickly within a few days, 1 after about 10 days.
I found a massive amount of holes in the brick below my porch (weep holes that are extra extra large) when I crawled there. The front of the mouse (where the porch is) has a mix of vinyl siding and brick.
I was a bit surprised to see fiberglass insulation under (not behind) my vinyl siding?!
You can even see in one of the pictures there seems to be a mouse tunnel inside the insulation!!
Does that insulation holds any value? It's in the way because I want to install metal lath under the siding (theres a wood 1x4 lumber under the siding close to the foundation where I can screw in the metal lath, but with that insulation I can't see properly where I'm drilling). The rest of the house doesn't have that, the 3 walls remaining don't have any insulation like that. Something tells me some previous owner put it in there... probably... I find this really bizarre.
Is it even safe? Would it not block proper water flow in case water gets behind the wall? Theres a membrane behind the wall, but still..
Any advice? Think I can just go ahead and rip/cut off that exposed insulation to install my metal lath?
