Yesterday I put some poison mouse baits in the ceiling cavity next to the manhole so that they were easy for me to get to. Looks like it paid off because when I checked it this morning all the bait was gone - hopefully eaten by those pesky mice! Thinking about it now, the house was decidedly quieter last night with no scratching noises coming from the walls and ceiling. So hopefully I may have contained our furry problem for the time being!
Just one small problem - what if the mice decided to die in the ceiling? Look out for the stench in a couple of days!!!??
