Me too Neal.

If you have not seen the mouse for a while, check the toaster. That is where I had one living a few years back.

We all know you only use a "humane" trap so you can feed the live mice to yer Jack Russell!

which boat do you refer to here ? the one in my profile I guess . probably more nature friendly than your leviathan , which doesn't sound like a veggie boat to me . they don't make a 2cv rib do they

Interesting that the context-sensitive adverts on this page are currently showing links to "Stress relief" and "Anger management" sites!

no to your last quote... j Just did not want my baby son crawling around on a floor that has mouse pee every where - the mouse never got caught by the traps, tried 4 different types and the ultra sonic plugs but nothing worked!
Living in the countryside does mean that you have a constant battle with vermin.

House mouse- and you think you got problems

I live "Out in the country": Score so far this year is:
20 scorpions
2 rattlesnakes in back garden
3 Cactus wrens flying around the house
1 wild pig ( pack of 5) attack in front garden, on my 100 lb. choc. lab. Ripped his shoulder open and cost $1000 vet bill + 45 days rabies quarantine.
3 dead rabbits floating in swimming pool
1 tarrantula spider the size of a saucer on back patio ( these are actualy good guys)
2 pack rats built nest under bonnet of by truck and ate out all the ignition wiring.
I mouse hatching 10 babys under fridge; sorry they all got flushed.
A couple of years ago my wife layed down on the couch for, a nap and commented that the cushion was moving. There was a rabbit under the cushion.
Sooooo, by my standards Qty. 1 house mouse is a very small problem.
Hope Ya'all find this interesting
T.

thats nothing!

after it rained the other day i had to pic up 3 dead worms off the patio before my young family were able to step outside into the garden to play


also to the issue of mouses in the houses or garage

we get them from time to time in the garage and i like the nice pleasing snap from a bit of sprung loaded metal taking the little blighter to task.

they do a lot of damage so i am not sorry to see them go, sorry about that, no erection Mr fuller just the relief that no more chewing damage in the garage. and if i let them go they will be back unless i travel a bit of a distance but not willing to do that for a pest.

have used the humane ones in the past but if you dont get to them in time they die of thirst/hunger which seems more cruel in a way.

so snap snap it is for me
