I had professional asbestos tile removal on the 1st floor of my multi level house which goes 3 steps down to the basement area. About a week and a half later I noticed a terrible odor in the bvasement. Right behind my air purifier (which was on) in a darkish corner was a dead mouse. I got rid of it and used Clorox Clean Up to wash the area.
NOW MY PROBLEM - Along the wall on that side is a ledge halfway up the wall to the corner with the sewer pipes and electrical above the ledge. In the corner of the ledge I found "helicopter" seeds from a maple tree a couple of times. Hubby has everything he can foamed up from a mpuse problem we had about 8 years ago and never saw another one till now. Last night there were a lot of those large winged seeds on the ledge and the floor in that spot.
What could be bringing these in and what can I do about it? Please help. I haven't seen any other evidence of anything in the house and the basement door itself has a little space underneath and I am afraid of what might be going in and out and maybe planning to bring some friends in. I never heard of a mouse carrying these helicopter seeds around.
