I'm being eaten out of house and home - literally!
Lately I've noticed tiny little bits and pieces of brick and mortar laying on the concrete porch at the front of my (brick) house. I would sweep them up and they would re-appear a short time later. A couple weeks ago I discovered that the face of one of the bricks on the house was destroyed. Looked like a tree that a beaver had been gnawing on. Clearly, the front half of the entire brick was gone!
I mixed up a batch of colored mortar (red brick house) and filled in the face of the chewed brick and it is still in tact. But while cutting the lawn the other day I noticed another brick has been eaten away off to the side of the porch, and this one is eaten completely through in one of the corners.
I have an abundance of birds, cotton tail rabbits, fox and gray squirrels all over the place. I'm betting it is one of the squirrels, but has anyone ever heard of them chewing through BRICK???? I have a game camera on order to see if I can gather evidence against this criminal, although it looks like it will be awhile before I get it. Also ordered a live trap as well - again, ASSUMING this is an unauthorized squirrel demolition crew.....
