I went to get something from the cabinet in my bedroom and I found a bunch of fresh mouse droppings on the bottom shelf!! I ran to the store to buy traps asap. Now I feel like my entire house is contaminated! The cradle is set up right beside this cabinet and all the newborn size clothes, hats, and socks that I washed last week are in a big basket under the cradle beside the cabinet... definitely going to rewash them now!
When I'm laying in bed not sleeping because my hips are killing me tonight the thought of a nasty mouse roaming my bedroom/house will creep into mind!
UGH! I know exactly how you feel. We live around tons of fields..and get mice so bad in the winter..I have to lay poison around my house..set traps and EVERYTHING but some how they still manage to find their ways in the house. I clean my house from top to bottom bleaching EVERYTHING anytime I see one..and if the mouse eats the poison (DCON) it blows up and dies in the middle of my floor! They gross me out so bad...but I don't know what else to do.
This is our first experience with a mouse! Dh is even more grossed out than I am! He's talking about getting a cat now and wants to go load up on every anti mouse thing available at the store to make sure the entire house is armed. i hope we catch him soon!
If you do find the hole stuff them up with steel wool, they cant chew through it as well and usually back off. Cats help a lot, just gotta keep an eye on him/her when baby comes. Its usually not a problem though.
Dh thinks it came in from our closet... The previous owner cut the majority of the sheetrock off one wall so he could work on pipes. We've lived here a year and it's been on the "to fix" list, but dh's had too many other things.
My inlaws use to have two cats in the house they use to live in and my allergies were terrible every time we went there. They had hair balls everywhere and the cats often pooped and threw up on the couch (and other places). I started to dread going there because of the cats. I don't want my house to turn into that!
I find them more annoying than anything. I work in a school near a field and learned the hard way they love to take one bite out of everything. They can't get into tin containers (think those big popcorn tins). Otherwise I've adapted after going through science supplies from the salvation army drop off center. They just said to beware the rat droppings as you pull down crates, ended up with so much mouse and rat droppings on me I am immune to the pests.
Although I would be worried now. They hate bouce fabric softener, cayanne pepper, lavendar, ammonia. You can also get these high pitched sound devices from some stores
