Mouse guard traps mouse inside

Now is time for spring cleaning. This hive has been plagued by field mice since last fall. The day I installed the mouse guard was cold and rainy, so I couldn’t get into the hive. I guess I should have checked it closer because I found a mouse trapped inside by the mouse guard. Once I unwrap the hive, I will be able to determine just how much damage has been done over the winter.
