Mickey's front door?

I have seen Mickey, maybe Minnie and who knows how many others? My eyes are not what they used to be and I would see one of the Mouse family from time to time on the fireplace bricks. They would disappear as soon as I took notice. Well, today, I found the little bleep's front(?) door! It only needs a yard light! I see that someone has been enlarging the hole, there is some kind of dust on the cane handle. Not sure if it's wood dust or brick, but they have been busy! The traps we have set for them have not been useful. Time for poison, I suppose. May just glue a pellet or two to the brick ledge and give whoever a belly ache.

  1. Have you tried glue traps? The reason I say this, they aren't toxic, so if the pups get into them, it's a mess, but won't cause internal problems. I know we've used them with success, oddly enough, near OUR chimney.

    1. So far, they haven't left any 'signs' anywhere that we see - the attic could be full though for all I know ...

  3. Mice can fit through the such little spaces it's hard to believe. I'm thankful I've had no experience with the little critters. Good luck.

  4. We had an infestation in the Workshop about 2 years ago. Ended up putting poison in the eaves and leaving the dog down the house. It got rid of rodents within 3 days but the shop smelled like a morgue for a week.

    1. Hmm, maybe I need to lure the little guys outside, but how?

  6. There some reason there coming. Take away what there possible enjoying and they leave. But some time you need to set a trap.

    1. They may be coming in for the dog food or the bird seed. I don't know. I can hear them, now and then, above the kitchen.

  7. Hum, I was sure I had left a comment here on how to patch that hole so they could never chew their way into it again.

    1. Thanks, but I know how I'll do it and no one will know it was there. (Except the mice)
