Take the other evening after a heavy snow storm in New Castle Pa. area a customer of mine a retail swimming pool business had both its Glass Break and motion sensor trip.
I got on scene in morning due to all the snow to find over a foot of snow totally covering the lot thick enough I could not drive in.
I trudge thru the snow and find the door is locked but when I enter I find 3 trash cans tipped and tubes of Lube Tube a gasket grease all over the floor.
Very strange animal would attack these tubes stranger yet I thought was the caps missing what animal takes the caps off and carefully removes a product from a open container .
Plus with all the snow and no tracks where or how did the animal get in.
|just my foot prints|
( very hard to get decent temporary seasonal employees for any business any more ) and I had this happen at another business but I was still not ruling animals out
So I changed the locks for owner and I would check store in a week and no one else would as we could tell when alarm is armed and disarmed But just to be certain I set poison bait all over the store.
maybe it is an animal.
But if it was animals how are they getting in and just how did the large piece of shelving bracket get on floor which caused the glass break to go off.

They recommended a Trail Cam which I installed works great for people but not small rodents saw me coming and going and nothing else. I set the tubes container on floor filled with tubes and poison to prevent alarm motion going off and leave.
So a week goes by I walk in and once again cans all knocked over Lube Tubes all over floor and all the poison I put down gone it had been consumed. It was then I found when I walked back to little repair shop that ceiling tiles had fallen and there I found several dead squirrels from Rat and Mouse Poison I had put down.
Apparently they had been living in the building all winter having got in thru a missing vent in attic.
thats why there was no prints in snow.
OK case solved not a rouge employee or a poltergeist but squirrels. So just to be sure I brought the bitten tubes home put them in back yard where I feed a dozen squirrels and sure enough they where immediately after them. I have contacted the manufacturer who finds whole thing amusing but they can not answer why they are attracted to product as nothing of a food consumable is in product.
