  • I am reminded of the garbage can where we keep our bird seed. One time the lid wasn't put on tight. Inside the can sitting on the seed were three very happy and chubby mice.

  • You should invest in a natural mouse trap. Wanna borrower my cat!

  • If you see one there are usually lots. Try and keep food in air tight containers, and keep your bagged garbage WELL away from the house. It's that time of year where they want to get out of the cold and food is scarce for them. Do everything you can to keep food out of their reach and the numbers will go down. They dont stay where they cant get food easily

  • I wish I could have a cat!! I can't have one b/c my SO is deathly allergic to them and our park mgr doesn't allow us to have pets. :(

  • My mom kept her dog food in the garage a few yrs back and they burrowed through the drywall and set up house keeping. She became over run with the little buggers...I think she caught 34 all said and done. When you see one know it has friends.

  • Call an exterminator. Mice are disgusting, disease spreading pests!! I'd freak out if I found them in my home. There is this REALLY great stuff called DeCon. They are green pellets or squares and the mice love to eat them. They eat them and then the mice go back to their nests and die, but the stuff dries them out and they just shrivel up and never smell. We use them at work and they might smell for a day or so after they die, but after that they don't smell anymore. Good luck!!
