    John - The daughter is a cutie! I've got a photo somewhere of an
    Embraer jet that bees fell in love with, but doubt they got entry,
    as happened in your case. The vacuum cleaner idea was great! Make
    absolutely sure to really have them gone before flying again, as the
    airflow in most light plane tailcones generally goes FORWARD toward
    the cockpit.

    We flew N6504R for a series of Boy Scouts to get their merit badges
    this week-end and found the nesting bird experience in the cowl and
    tail. The eviction process sure slowed things, but the weather was
    beautiful and flying with the kids is always great. Back to throwing
    a box of aluminum foil in my kit to plug the holes after we fly.

    The guy that got my old tie-down spot near the hedge row also got my
    old mouse problem. Best traps I've found are the little clear boxes
    with the trap door that Walmart sells for about a buck and a half
    each. Put a couple bits of dog food or peanut butter in and the
    mice can't resist - or escape. The boxes work far better than the
    old spring traps, especially for the baby field mice.

    Bees, birds, and mice

    Hi all -

    No nests or hives or mice in Carrie Nation (N1927W) but the Barn Owls that have
    found their way in to the big hanger seem to provide 'leftover' mouse parts in
    big blobs on the top of my wings.

    UGH!
