Mice. Bollox best get some traps.
We had mice a few months ago, and caught 4 in a humane trap all in one go, whereas they ignored the snappy traps! The pest control man said that they can get in through a hole as small as a pencil, and our house was built in 1840 and probably has lots of small holes!Posted 4 years agojag61Member
its revlolting when they get into kitchens our cats get 2 or 3 a week so we must be almost overun with them outside. one or more destroyed the inner boot of my climbing boots a few years ago high on a shelf in the garage. not allowed to keep cats in there apparently good luck with the hunt.Posted 4 years ago
Opened a seldom used cupboard in the kitchen that is linked to the under the kitchen sink cupboard, ( unknown to me until i looked tonight for how thye got in.
Mouse dropings all over, it had eaten the flour – through the bag and a lfair quantity of flour.
Emptied the cupboards contents into the bin and disinfected but cannot find an entry/exit point in the floor or wall for them getting n and out. I have solid suspended concrete floors wi only holes for pipes – all the pipes are a tight fit !
Ive had the kickboards off and double checked this.
Wll get some snap traps baited and fitted tomorrow.
Next doors cats not doing its job damn. Might have to get a mouse chasing machine my self!Posted 4 years ago

My cat is awesome at catching mice.
He catches them in the forest behind my house, brings them home alive, drops them and lets them escape behind the kitchen counters never to be seen again.
We have a Basil for doing that – he seems convinced that there is a live mouse shortage at my parent’s place.Posted 4 years agobrakesMember
the best way to get rid of mice is don’t leave it any food anywhere whether that be open containers, cardboard containers or crumbs on surfaces/ the floor.Posted 4 years ago
I know we have them in our house – I can hear them in the walls, but they appear to just use it as a way of getting into neighbouring houses as they don’t poo anywhere inside and any traps we put down don’t get used. they did start running across the kitchen floor from under the fridge (saw one late at night) but we blocked that entrance so I assume they’ve found another way of getting there (chewed through another wall/ cupboard back most likely).
we didn’t think we were …… corner cupboard that the previous owner had cut one side out of connecting it to the sink cupboard meaning the mouse had free reign to the g/fs baking stuff…..
anyway judging by the snap that just went off its now an EX mouse.
will leave the other trap set and investigate in the morning.Posted 4 years ago
