The mice are back in our house. sad.gif Got traps down and caught one here on my computer desk last night. We had them years ago but had a new kіtchen and bathroom last summer and thought the guys had blocked all the holes but can hear them above my head in the loft at night. Little devils. mad.gif Had a big 175g bag of Walkers salt & vinegar crisps and started them last night. Wife was going mad as they were all falling out on the floor as I walked about. Turned out there were two holes in the bottom!!

Anyone else got them? I know rats are said to be worse and carry more disease.

Haven't seen any for years, but used to get them at my mother's house.

Have you ever tried cleaning your house at least twice a week, and try not to spill any food crumbs late at night onto the floor. unsure.gif drama.gif

Did you know that deadmau5 is so named because he found a dead mouse when examining why his computer abruptly shut down, and was then called 'the dead mouse' guy by his friends after the incident?

On Wednesday one of my coworkers was cleaning up the leaves in front of the office entrance and found a dead mouse under the leaves. I'm usually the one who cleans up the leaves there so I'm glad I didn't do it that time. Not sure how long the mouse was there though, I hope I didn't step on it mellow.gif

I once found a dead dried up mouse in a halfway consumed packet of sunflower seeds

My sister once (slowly) killed a mouse after having trapped it first. She was like 15 so didn't know how to do it quickly and my cat is absolutely useless bless her

I found Ratatouille super boring. Come at me whores

Happy to update you all. smile.gif No they haven't gone. sad.gif The tell tale droppings keep appearing on the kіtchen surfaces etc. Daughter lifted settee cushions up and there were loads under there! OMG. Everything's in tubs or tins now so at least we're not feeding them. I can hear them above my head in the loft at night and sometimes when I go for a siesta too. Traps down but only caught two in the past few weeks.

Wife cornered one in the bathroom once and it couldn't escape and she stabbed it with a meat skewer. She has an evil streak . ohmy.gif

Our beagle saw one but was useless too but a friend's Staffie is a great mouser and has caught loads. Some cats are even scared of them.

I don't like killing them tbh, they're just hungry like us after all.

We just discovered mice crap in one of our kіtchen cupboards 💩 and they've eaten into the wood too. Cats are too lazy to kill them clearly. 🙄

We had field mice living under the shed at the old house but they were never in the house. We lived literally at the edge of town so this kind of stuff is pretty common

Yes common sense definitely should have been up with the others imo that got recognition in this month's Lounge awards. He was brill on the Lounge in October! smile.gif

Why specifically are you asking him if he plays the flute I wonder unsure.gif laugh.gif
