I have just moved to a new place and its fairly old, but in decent working order.
There have been mice roaming my facility since I moved in and I constantly find mice droppings in my cabinets, floors, on clothes & shoes, and all OVER my kitchen!!
I have set traps (sticky paper and avanced plastic traps-in case my daughter gets to it) and called my landlord about the issue.
Yesterday I caught a mouse and the maintenance took care of it and set more traps. This morning, I didn't see any mice that were caught, but the food I laid in them was gone. I have NO IDEA how the mice got the food w/out being caught, but its really irritating me!
I let my landlord know about the issue and they said, "the previous tenants had no issue with mice, so maybe its just one and they're gone." Now I'm not an idiot, I KNOW mice travel in packs or there is always more than just one. So I told them, "no its not just one, I laid out food and the food is GONE and there is no MICE!" She mentioned she'd talk to the owner and get back to me.
In the meantime, I fear that the mice are chewing through my clothes, shoes, books, anything! I did some MAJOR cleaning yesterday and put things high, where I would hope they cannot craw to. Who knows though? Rodents are nasty, annoying, and clever creatures.
Also, I have begun to get hives or some type of irritating skin rash on my shoulder, which I have no idea if that is linked to the mice in the house or just me being outside and getting bit.
What other suggestions do you all have to rid of mice??? I don't want to move, but this is a NASTY infestation!!
THANK - YOU!!
