If you've been following our Facebook Page every day for the past four-and-a-half years, you've already seen most of these photos. Halloween seems like a good time to re-share these. Unlike most of our blog posts, this one has no educational value whatsoever. These are just for fun.
Warning: Some of these photos have a high 'yuck' factor. If you don't want to see a floating mouse, don't scroll down.
Baby bunny trapped in a window well. Yes, we rescued her.
Spotted Salamander trapped in a window well. Yes, we rescued him. I think. This was many years ago.
This was a squirrel living in the wall of a vacant Category II property in Saint Paul. I extended my tape measure and poked it just to be sure. It was definitely living.
Aww...cute! A baby squirrel in an attic. Now GET OUT.
We found this albino squirrel keeping warm inside of a chimney.
This squirrel skeleton made me wonder why I don't find more skeletons.
Yep, it's a bat in a bedroom. We encountered this bat while doing a TISH evaluation in Minneapolis at a bank-owned property with a broken window. Our inspection of this room was very brief.
Why did this owner keep animal jaw bones in their kitchen cabinet? Good question.
When I told the buyer about the chipmunk remains in this knee-wall attic, he quickly 'shushed' me to make sure his wife didn't hear. Good plan.
We find mice getting stuck in the darndest of places.
Is this mouse not the fattest, happiest mouse you've ever seen? There was a huge bag of spilled, half-eaten bird seed in the garage.
Lots of home buyers ask us how often they should clean the moths out of their light fixtures, and we tell 'em "as needed". Ok, nobody has really ever asked us that. But still. We think it's good advice.
Creepy white spider in a crawl space. What makes this happen? No idea.
Finally, here's a super creepy video that Milind took.
I'll get back to something more educational next week.
