Mice!

Hmmph:ranting:

My flatmate has just seen a mouse scuttle across our new student house and we are trying to work out what to do.

Because we are renting do you think it is worth going to our landlord and asking for some mouse traps? Should they provide them seen as it is their property?

I was kind of expecting us to have mice at some stage, as our kitchen is in the basement, and the flooring and stairs down to it have plenty of holes in them, but its still a shock to know we actually have them.

Do any of you have any brilliant tips for ridding our house of them?

God I now feel uncomfortable! Sad

This looks like fun.

I used one called The Big Cheese to catch my mouse though. I think I bought it in B&Q

that looks good Fee.

I don't have a problem with mice ... I have a massive scarey looking cat who scares them off ... ok a big fat cat who would let a mouse lick the food off his whiskers ... but I'm sure his mere presence scares them away!

I don't know if this is sexist, but my female cat was a rat/mouse catcher extrodinaire - this cat (a boy) has trouble trapping a fly or a daddy long legs!

are boy cats generally crap at catcing things? shall we start a survey!

... and Mars - take away their food supply, ie. old food beind the cooker, stuff behind the settee or down the side ... or wherever students leave scraps of food and I'm sure the mice will disappear.

Sorry Marsy, but pest control is down to the tenant, not the landlord. Smile

Give it a name and buy it a cage.

Thought it might be. Hoping I guess!

And Dol, I really have tried to cut off its food supply. But when you have flatmates that insist on leaving plates on the floor downstairs its difficult :ranting:

Oh well, I suppose I should pop off and get some mousetraps then!

I think just the mouse traps will probably do it.Smile

when we had a mouse invasion years back in Tottenham the council came and killded them all so they did - for nothing. Things must have changed over there since, or maybe it's still worth a call to your local council dudes....

Looks like we might have a few of the little critters in the loft.

Hubby was up there today and loads of their poop was scattered about.
Mouse traps here we come.
