Rodents?

After two years of peaceful living in my apartment, I have recently seen several mice scurry across my floor. (A fun way to discover a new phobia!)

My question to you all is twofold:

1. How frequently do you see rodents in Edgewater? I haven't noticed any until now, just curious how common of an issue it is in our neighborhood.

2. Any neighborly advice on how to deal with the issue? So far I've thoroughly cleaned the apartment and splurged on getting a professional cleaning later this week. Also set some traps and plugged up some holes with steel wool. But would LOVE any further advice to not deal with this again!

Thanks!

    Well fed, untrained cats are often indifferent to mice and rats. Kittens taken from their mothers too soon, often don't learn to prey on mice.

    What would well fed have to do with it. Cats don't eat the mice they kill. All the cats I've had over the years have "preyed" on anything that moved, whether its a ball I've thrown or a centipede.

Gang of kids egging people, cars etc.

I was biking near Glenwood and Glenlake last week, and passed a group of young kids walking. They were walking south, as I was biking north...they waited until I was past them and threw and egg at me...I at first thought I was imagining it, but I turned around and there was the egg on the ground (it didn't hit me)...I biked all around the area, and they were gone ( most likely live right around there, since I assume they went inside somewhere close by). Well, yesterday evening (6/23), a friend of mine saw a group of kids egging cars and people, and even the EL, right by Whole Foods in Edgewater...

  • Is that why I have seen eggs in front of my building every now and then???

  • Spam Alert Relieved that EB identity has not really changed

    It depends. Have you seen any hens?

  • Wouldn't you think that Nessy knows all of this being a board member? Why the confusion? The grilled Bryn Mawr Mess panini, with turkey, corned beef and salami, plus a side of either the soup of the day or salad is substantial. That, plus a slice of Zanzibar's German Chocolate or Red Velvet cake for dessert is a full meal.

  • A.S Living and Playing in Chicago

    Yea just went to Zanzibar to get ice cream with my husband-they messed up my husband's ice cream order so bad that he got pissed off and told the kid to cancel the order. We corrected him like four times and he still couldn't get it for some reason. It's ok, kinda pricey and probably will stick with Lickity Split even though they don't have as much choices-but the place always has long lines and never screw up our order. There were hardly any people in Zanzibar either.
