And I am so fucking sick of it. Every morning I want to cry because I know I have cleanup/disinfecting duty before I can do anything else and it's wearing on me. I cannot wait until summer when the snakes move in under the house and thin the mouse population.

Just venting.

Do you have traps set anywhere at all? Perhaps in the summer you can find out where those bastard are getting in. I haven't had a problem this year, last year sucked though.

Yup, release traps and spring traps, but as far as I can tell it isn't making a dent. I live in a trailer so they can get in pretty much anywhere, but I am going to start sealing it up where I can next month. They have chewed through the sealant I used in some places.

Set some rat poison trays under the trailer as well.

Get a cat.  Seriously, get a sweet tempered kitten from a mother who mouses. 

We lived in a rural area and every year when they cut the hay.... invasion.  But my girl helped so much.... she seriously killed thirteen in a single day.

Yikes! :( stupid mice! Last year my mom caught a LOT of them like about 40. Sometimes she'd catch up to 4 a day!

And if someone is allergic/you just hate cats... get a rat terrier from parents who still hunt small things.

Mine killed a huge rat the other day. I was shocked at how big it was!

 Get a cat. I had one come in and my mouse got it within 2 days.
