Three stories I wish I didn't have to share. First, I found a live mouse that had fallen into a pail in our garage. I ate released it. Later in the day, I lit the bbq, and felt something fall on my foot and looked to see another (the same?) mouse diving for its life from the flames. Then, last night while watering our new seed (come on grass, grow!), I noticed red carpenter ants going onto our deck and into the siding. Awesome. I love nature, but only when it behaves itself. Get off my lawn!

Update: I think I'm wrong--they are Fire Ants.  I've been doing some more research and found some control options.
