belive it or not i once caught 35 mice one night using just 3 traps................[xx(]

we lived in a house that backed onto fields and every harvest time we got the same problem, the houses were those concrete ones with cavity walls.

we called the council pest controler and he put some poison down, but he also said he reckoned we got them all.......an adult pair and two sets of young.

and the miricle bait i used.......digestive biscuits[8D]

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

My neighbour keeps bantams and pigeons as well as lurchers terriers and ferrets. Despite this he regularly gets rats, and mice are ever present. He cures the rat problem periodicaly by clearing out a shed and introduces the terriers.

chill out go fishing

Just had three of them in the shop due to a needle point (pr#ck)who lives in the flat above breeding them.[:(!]
This was one of the quickest groundbait sales ever.....15 bags of g/bait[V]....1 big bill[:D].....3 dead mice[:D]It`s amazing what pulling power strawberry g/bait has on a trap.[:D]

not really any help but i was told to use the fat from the frying pan or bacon rind, as the mice lick the fat....

12 bore shot gun is also useful...

a bad day's fishing is better than a good day at work

12 bore??????????????/

no good what so ever

costs to much to replace damaged furniture and flooring

i would advise people not to shoot them with a 12 bore while in the house


(who said that none of my 2300ish posts were helpfull lol)

Looks like it`s been fed on house bricks and small kids just for starters.
