I had a few squares of bees wax in my garage shop, but when I looked for them, they seem to have vanished completely, even the one on the lathe. There are also mice in the garage, so I wonder if they eat the stuff. Anyone know about this?
get a cat
get more bees wax
make sure it is a meat eating cat and not these metro sexual cats
that are afraid of rats
i mention rats because that is more likely your problem
mice are mostly 2d
rats are 3d
norwegian wharf rats are 6d
Norwegian wharf rats, a.k.a. brown rats.
I've seen bigger in NJ and NY. Found a super fat 2+ footer under a
trash box while cleaning out underneath. Never knew they could get so
big and fat. No one else did either. It kept three audlts and two dogs
at bay with barred teeth and snarls, then hauled ass towards the local
park. Two people walking up the street made an abrupt backup.
So I guess the rat I saw was a ??d in 4k 3D?
that is a bigun
some exterminators will not deal with them they will not do it
the reference to 2d for mice was that they typically do not climb
they stay on floors and follow a wall etc
rats will readily climb so they are 3d
wharf rats also climb but nothing seems to stop them
they will chew through concrete so they go where ever they want
if you have those you need a real hunter cat or a smart dog that
has it in their breed
most urban pets would probably be killed and eaten by a wharf rat
if they did not run
One of my Co-orkers moved from NYC to "upstate" (meaning North of
Yonkers ;). He saw the rats we had, and told his friends back in the
old 'hood that their rats were puny. ...except that they were
opossums, in Duchess County. ;-)

One upon a time a Vietnamese Ranger unit I was assigned to captured an
underground, unit sized, North Vietnamese bunker complex in Cambodia. It
was during the rainy season in SE Asia, and, in and attempt to stay dry,
we decided to quarter in the bunker for a few days while we regrouped
from the battle.
Only problem was the underground rats, almost as big as some of the
"pet" dogs (who followed along side of us a convenient food supply).
First night I sat, awake in my sleeping bag, with a Montagnard crossbow,
to kill them before they got to me.
One night of those rats and I decided to sleep above ground, and deal
with the cobras instead ...
Tooth marks are tough to measure when they consume the entire wax package :)
Setting glue traps will let you know pretty quickly, They typically do not discriminate between size or species of critter...Once caught 2 live rats in the same tray...not a pleasant find, as they were both still alive...
