  • Rachael Ray had a mouse catching expert on the other day. He had some great ideas. Try going to her site and linking to him and his ideas.

  • I would lend you one of my kitties, but they probably wouldn't travel well. I would do so more "treats" for the mice in places that the kiddos cannot reach. I keep the stuff under much kitchen sink and it serves us very well. Too bad I can't do the same for the rats in my garden.

  • Just leave your traps out, if you haven't seen any, you hopefully got rid of the all, but sticky trap left where you found the droppings, you will know soon enough if there are any more mice!

  • Like kimigogo said, leave some traps out and see what happens. If you don't get anything within a day or so, they're old droppings. We haven't had a mouse in our house for 2 years and we still a few traps in very strategic places.

  • call maintenance again! they have 72 hours to respond to your call (during the week ovbiously), and if they wont help you, call the housing office and bother them until you get your problem solved. thats what one of my neighbors had to do. and find out the pest control sched, here its thurdays. they might be able to give you more info about it.
