Ok we have Mice. I have posted this before several months back. We raged an all out war and I stopped seeing them for a good while. Well weather got cold and they are finding new ways in. Anyway. we set traps(snap traps) after I told DH set me some traps I hear mice in here(our bed room.. shudders). Well he did, and when he went to check the traps this morning, he say OH SHHHH..... I said you got two, he said TWO?, Come look at this. Ok now this is the strangest thing I have EVER seen. one trap, we set two, had 1 mouse. the other had 2, right next to each other. Yes nasty I agree, but strangely odd.

 Yeah, we also had a problem when road construction was going on. They cleared out a wooded area, and we had a baby opposum in the garage one morning.

Quoting Leelee1008:

thats our problem. Our neighbor got sick and moved in with her son, let her youngest dead beat son keep the house, well he left it in shambles, we went in there and tehre was mice crap and bugs. The house has been vacant for a year this past october, but as soon as the cold came, we noticed the mice. they also cut down ALL the woods at the end of my street to build appartments. were getting alot of crittes in the neighborhood.

Quoting SweetLuci:

 Many years ago, the house next door had been empty for a long time, then new people bought it, found mice and bugs, and set of spray bombs, which sent them scurring to our garage. DH set 3 traps. we went to bed. We heard three snaps. He went out, emptied them, set them again, got back in bed, three snaps. Set them again, back in bed, three snaps. We were starting to cuddle each time and kept getting interrupted, then we were laughing so hard. We ended up with 15, and that was the end of that.

I hate it. I dont like the thoughts of glue traps, since they are still alive when you pick them up, but I need them gone and fast, they are YUCKY!

I used to live in a place where the mice would come creeping in during the cooler months... Drove me crazy! I hope this was the last of them for you.

 I don't know which are worse, the glue traps-great because you just throw the whole thing away-but can't stand to hear their squeals and know they're suffering-or the traps that you have to release and sometimes the mouse is stuck and then you have to reset it. It's a problem. I'm glad that DH did it, and that we don't have that problem where we live now.
