    He has been doing it for 30 years. I don't think that's it. I think they may have lost their food source a few houses in back of us when they fumigated. If nothing else, they might have cleaned up their area so their housing could been disturbed.

    I had a huge influx in mice when the house across the road got cleaned up for selling.
    The owners just walked away from it and left everything, including trash and a lot of animal feed.
    When all that was hauled off they targeted my place. :sick

    In the South Bay area of the SF Bay, crows have eaten/driven away all birds. There is nothing left there, but noisy crows/ravens. Oh wait, a few red winged black birds too but they are mostly in San Jose area.
