Al was floating in front of a full wall projection of Earth. Al could say what he liked, but Juan would be walking through that garden with his wife within the week. Priscilla loved her roses. Juan liked to joke that he could always smell her coming. Just after the Neptune slingshot is when we turned on the fugue drive and left our home universe forever.
Juan flicked the holo off. Screw it, might as well stay civil for the last few days. We exceeded light speed. Leaving our home universe was the only way we could preserve causality and avoid time paradoxes.
Al turned around to stare at the Earth. Just the fact we flouted the rules damned us. But a different Grandmother, one you could kill with impunity. We have to be. Years of testing went into that drive. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. I have gleaned the following from the internet — and other sources: Mice can jump an average of 12 inches vertically and four 4 FEET horizontally!
Exceptional mice can jump 18 inches vertically. They are known to gnaw on wood spars and rib stitching. I have seen some really messy results Their urine is not nice -can lead to corrosion, as well as infection. Their scat droppings can be dangerous.

Collected in a fuselage, scat can be a gathering place for moisture -hence corrosion. It also is dangerous as a source of infection. They carry many dangerous diseases…including the formidable Hantavirus. They can flatten their bodies to enter incredibly small spaces. Even small bats We should call them flying mice? If you want to keep mice out of your aircraft I think the following might work. It might prove satisfactory to use a very smooth galvanized metal ring collar around the main gear and the third wheel should have a ring around it.
If you have a taildragger the ring on the tail wheel might be quite large in diameter in order to clear the lower rear fuselage and any tail brace wires and the rudder. The height of the metal rings should be safely 19 inches although 13 to 14 inches might be enough for the average mouse Properly designed rings should easily encircle the wheels and then clip together to form a complete circle. Where they clip together the joint should be very smooth and run vertically.
Keep the aircraft at least four 4 feet away from walls, boxes, other aircraft etc. Consider putting baited and simple mouse traps inside the rings It is possibly very unlikely that chemicals or electronic mice "discouragers" will actually work. Mice can get used to electronic outputs -and often just walk on by chemical "discouragers". Handle with care.

Wash your hands afterwards. I know of some insulated hangars where the mice live in the wall insulation -also the ceiling insulation. In the ceiling they mimic bombers and sprayers… Climbing walls, they can be very adept -acrobatic even- although I have not yet observed any vertical rolls.
