Mice! I hate mice. People tell me that being surrounded by fields means I’m stuck with these rodents, but I refuse to accept it. They’ve gone through a 50 lb bad of wheat! And we wont get into the amount of clothes they’ve destroyed. Why the clothes, I have no idea.
I’ve tried traps. They were really effective for a while. The picture above was the first day I had them out. There were 3 in the trap when I woke up. There were 4 by the time I went to bed. Dumb mice. If the rest of the clan is in there trapped, why on earth would you join them?
I’ve tried mint leaves and mint oil. It works for a while. But then they get used to it.
We’ve tried bait, as much as we’ve hated to. It’s helped us rid the house of a few more.
We’ve tried lavender oil. It did nothing.
We’ve tried steel wool in the holes we’ve found, but they’re just using other holes somewhere.
we were told to try aromatic ceder. We haven’t been able to get our hands on any of that yet.
The best thing to help us get rid of them so far? The cold. Too bad that this is the warmest January I can remember.
Anyone else have any suggestions? Please? And while you’re at it can you come find every nook and cranny they have so they can’t keep getting in?
