Okay, so I noticed that a pack of toilet paper that was stored on the floor of my pantry was chewed up and made into a nest. I cleaned that up and told Chris. Before he could buy traps, I had to throw away several packages of food/bread that had been nibbled through. So, I moved all open things into the cabinets.
Now for the catching of the mice. Chris brought home the traps which said to put peanut butter on them. The mice ate the peanut butter WITHOUT setting off the traps! So, I put some cheese on them. Soon we had a mouse! With the light on in the pantry, with us up and around making noise, he was out and about in our PANTRY!! YUCK!!!!! So then, Chris had another type of trap...a glue pad. NEVER, I repeat NEVER buy the glue pads. I knew it looked horrible as soon as I saw them.
A few minutes after I noticed the first mouse, we heard a tap, tap, tap coming from the pantry. I went in to find a glue pad bouncing around the pantry floor with a panicked mouse attached!! What are you supposed to do with that!!!????!! Luckily for us and for the mouse, he bounced himself over to another trap with cheese on it where he tried to get a snack and got himself caught in that trap too, ending his life. DISGUSTING!!!!!!
I have never had mice before. I don't even know how many to expect or how to know when we have all of them! I think we should just move.
