These dirty spots are “rub marks” left behind from rodents, in this case it was mice. The oil from the rodent’s fur will rub off on the surfaces they frequently travel and squeeze thru.

When you know what to look for then the big picture becomes more clear on how rodents are traveling and getting inside your structure.

It’s that time of year when the carpenter bees are a-buzzing. You’ve probably noticed the big robust bees swooping, bobbing and weaving around your soffits and decks.
