Yard camera outside
I wanted the long cable so I can move one of my cams around the yard a greater distance.
Detecting rodent trails
I’ve been trying to determine how the rats and mice have been getting into my attic so I wanted to be able to move the cam all the way around the house to find where their trails are so I can block them out of my attic.
Never ending bulk head work
I did some work on the bulk head project for a couple hours just to get some more stuff done on that project. A couple hours is about all I can do on that project as every thing seems to be moving heavy things around. But a little at a time will get the job done which I just need to finish before winter hits.
Moving the camera
Since I spotted the rats and mice using the wire to move around the other day I was thinking they may be using this white wire to get onto my roof and into my attic somewhere so I set the camera up. It’s hooked to my computer so I can watch it and it records stuff automatically and does pretty good at night with infrared.
Lots of seed potatoes
My brother Tom said he had some extra seed potatoes if I wanted to plant them so he brought them over and dropped them off. Lots of them. I need to find places for them and get them into the ground soon.
Need to green up
The camera worked already
It didn’t take long for a rodent to cross the wire. It was just after dark and this speedy little guy came running off the roof and ran across the wire and jumped to a tree and came down to the ground. So now I know at least one rodent has a hole somewhere up on the roof. I’ll move the camera up there soon to follow it’s path to that hole.
After taking those photos I realized I hadn’t hooked the new cable into the router so it was working wireless to that spot which I’d thought it wouldn’t. I hooked up the wire just the same as it’s a faster connection.
That’s it for another nice fall day.
