I decided to upgrade the in-wall cables in my home office from Category 5 to Category 6. Not a big deal since the conduit is already there, right? Well I wasn’t counting on this.
Last fall I successfully eradicated a mouse infestation in the garage, or so I thought. Turns out the mice had been not just in the garage, but in the ceiling too. The pictures tell the story.
Pulled out a big chunk of ceiling wallboard, vacuumed in between joists, then installed new wallboard and painted. This time I’m using high-voltage boxes, not just low-voltage rings, so even if the mice return, they won’t be directly on top of the jacks.
