Well actually in the kitchen.

My mother in law had mice and she didn't do anything about it. House stank of mouse urine.  They also chewed through the electrics leading to her having no electrics or lights downstairs.  The electrician refused to enter until the mice were exterminated.  Only that persuaded her to call in the exterminators.

There are also some rather nasty diseases spread by mice.  As well as flees obviously.

Huane traps don't work.  To get rid of them you have to kill them.

Put the traps near the bin.  The only time we had them they were getting into the kitchen bin.  Killed eight of them then they went away.  Would hear the thwack of the trap springing, then the pater of their death rows, then put on the marigolds and chuck the body in the bin.  You should tell your landlord.      It is his responsibility to get the exterminators in.

We have huge rats here, but all farms do.

I have small rats (but they are rats!) in my loft.  I use a combination of traps and poison.

Humane traps are all very well, but if you release the mice, they will come back!

Lol skotty!

 

mouse traps have come up. After a week the mice had successfully avoided them completely. Maybe they don't like peanut butter as it hadn't been touched. Thought maybe they weren't getting in but one ran across the room while I was watching tv. Next plan, contact landlord.

I used to be very tolerant of mice until within a few weeks they had replicated... they breed like, er, rabbits.  Kill them now before they take over and infest everything.  The smell is disgusting and really hard to get rid of.  I never kill spiders though
