  1. Sadly, feeding the birds also attracts mice, rats, and squirrels. I never knew this until an exterminator told me that bird seed is so appealing to rodents, it is used in some of the bait. I always enjoyed feeding birds until I learned of this unintended consequence. Also leaving trash outside, close to houses and not in cans will attract all kinds of animals. Seal all entry points in homes too. Any small hole or crack is an open invitation.

  2. Lazy- ass people leaving shopping carts all over the place shows their lack of responsibility. If one goes to an Aldi store, we have two in York, you will find no lose carts. Aldi’s solution is to have a customer insert a quarter into a slot in order to take a cart to shop. When the customer is done, he/she puts the cart back and extracts the quarter. Everything is neat, and Aldi doesn’t need to hire people to retrieve the shopping carts.
