Going by the racket in the walls last night there is more than1 but as of this morning 2 less. I hate having to use traps but I hate having mice pooping in the food cupboard more. Last week the cat was playing with a mouse inside but it escaped. That could be the one in the cupboard...but there are some out in the shed again and they come in to get warm. And to eat the icecream cones! I usually keep all perishables in glass jars but forgot about the cones. Oh well, we didn't have any icecream to put in them anyway.
I wont use poisonous baits as we have animals and native creatures that we want to stay safe and I wont use anything that will kill them in a horrible way...I have thought of one of those sonic things...has anyone any experience with them?
What I want is a humane, safe way to make them stay away. Anyone have any ways that have worked for them?
I have read mixed reports on Peppermint oil but as I don't have any I can't test it for myself. I do have Mint growing so maybe a handful of that thrown in there will work.
Right, Mint is in the cupboard, I will see how that goes. If nothing else it will make everything smell nice.
