    My coop is about 50 feet away from my hives. I kinda figured they were giving the mice their vittles so they may not bother with the honey. I'ma hoping, anyway!

    So, after reading everyone's threads, that I appreciate so much, I went out there this morning and took off the mouse guards. The lo's are going to be in the high 50's 58-60* at night, and 80's in the day for a couple of weeks. I looked in the bottom board opening, and there is a huge amount of bees, so I don't think a mouse would have a chance. I will put them back on as it gets colder. They all seemed to appreciate it, me getting those out of there They are still coming in with heavy filled pollen pockets, so I think I did them a favor. Thank you all so much for helping me keep my sanity!

    Cats also eat the birds that sometimes prey on the bees in flight.
