I've got mice, I don't like them and want them out. The humane traps aren't working.
peanut butter? It really works.
thats in the humane trap. Don't just hit them with a jar of peanut butter.
work for me, I tried in on its own, in sandwiches, pies the lot. Didnt get rid of them.
Get a vermatik rodent repeller, or two. Honestly, we had mice at work, I bought two of these and they've gone.
Or one of these:
I've got 4 of the above at home, and have only ever seen dead mice.
They are absolutely lethal. Or you could use a breadknife, as I did one night in a house which had an infestation - I speared one, and then went back to my butty. Marvellous. Like Ray Mears, but without the tight shorts.
really good aren't they, I was really sceptical, but no mice (or spiders) since installation...
By installation I mean, plugging in. :)
cats bring the little fuckers in ! not get rid of them, at least my cat does, alive then they escape her clutches and I spend hours chasing them around the kitchen like some modern day Tom and Jerry cartoon.
Live in a council house? Dear god no!
of the traps employed by MacAulay Culkin in Home Alone. Avoid inviting any tiny friends round to the house for a while.
and come to a common understanding. I dream of the day when mouse and human can peacefully co-exist.
where i work, I named them speedy and squeak, speedy got crushed by my boss with a bread bin :( squeak is still around thou.
you got a bread bin?
will work. Lay a trap as follows.
Get a tall kitchen bin, place near to work surface, lay newspaper on top with some breadcrumbs on it. Now connect top of bin to work surface with some more newspaper. Go to bed, come down in the morning and you'll have some very gutted mice sitting in your bin. I did this a few years ago and it worked a treat ! if they are'nt getting on to the work tops it might not work though I admit but ours were eating our bread !
and they'll clear up in a few days.
