Do-it-Yourself Mouse-Exclusion FAIL in Athens, Georgia

Caulking was applied around wires where they pass through a painted cinder block but the caulking pulled away along with the paint and allowed mice to get in.

Failed DIY mouse-proofing attempt in Athens

What happened here was that the homeowner attempted to keep mice out of this house in Athens, Georgia using silicone caulking compound. The problem is that they applied the caulk to the paint. When the paint pulled away from the cinder block, so did the caulking; and the mice got into the house through the resulting gap around the wires.

It's another example of a good idea that was poorly executed.
