The local animals moved into the building over the well. They aren't good housekeepers, but the plumber's idea of how to deal with an old panel is interesting.

They look like old Bulldog Pushmatic breakers.

The scratches on the rigid insulation are claw marks from tiny feet.

I had to work in a "room" like this before. The walls were alive with thousands of Cave Crickets. Every time I moved, so did they. They would jump all around me and on to me. It was terrible, but I had to get the pump working again because there were several homes without water.
