Thank goodness my traps work.
Mice have chewed the electrics in the kitchen, getting under the floorboards upstairs. The electircian held out the offending wires in silent accusation. All is now replaced...the kitchen lights work again and the traps set.
I hope the seven mice I have caught since new year are it. They are so destructive. We could have had a fire! Silly me to think that having vanquished them last year, that they woud not be back in the cold weather! Mice can squeeze in through the smallest of holes.
I do not mind mice outside as long as they don't attack my beehives etc. I do mind mice chewing wires in the house!
One of my least favourite jobs is checking the mouse traps but someone has to do it. Particularly after reading the Bryson book.
Have you set a mouse trap today? Or do you prefer curling up in front of a fire?
