I think its like you say- sound deadening from road.
Speaking or mice...
Caught 2 rats last night in my Sweet Lime tree.
These are fruit rats... as they dont like meat or say peanut butter on the traps. Theyre not even going for my Avocados.
But-- I put apple slices and within 1 hr--- we had caught 2 on the same trap. Nearby in the bugavillea tree- I could see 3 more-- their beady shinning eyes looking back at me.
Been finding at least 10 sweet limes on the ground every morning.
