You know, just when you think you're rid of it...We finally got to lifting out the carpet the POs had installed...and there were little desicated hantapoopies everywhere underneath! I couldn't believe we slept there and didn't get sick. Fortunately, there's no sign of current residency (though last year I filled the two cracks in the belly pan with expanding foam, which seems to work). Needless to say, I quickly went to town with a mop--on both the original flooring and the backside of the carpet (we have to live with it for a few more months until we're ready to install the new lino). Personally, I hate the droppings more than the mice, except when they are dead.

Yes, I agree. Ew.

No, no dent in the cieling, but there may be a spot as when I caught the cushion and realized a mouse was still in it, I pitched the cushion straight up and it hit the ceiling before bouncing into the bathtub - - it was upon retrieval of the cushion from the bathtub that I discovered that the rodent was dead - - and another dead mouse was in the bathtub (don't know whether it had been dislodged from the cushion or was already there)!

Did you know we breed Aluminum Mice in Canada!

We were lucky no mice in the GT - must have been too wet in Louisiana and now too cold in CND!!!

But this next one (no name yet as the deal is not done - but soon!) just might have a few of them in it been sitting in a field for a while - will have to send in the AS-Mouse to control the SOB's

Seriously, we have an aluminum mouse given to us by my parents - they joke about the mice we get in the basement so they gave us one for the trailer to make us feel at home - tee hee

PS the AS Piggy is our "Restoration Piggy Bank" kept at the front door for unsuspecting donators.....

The mouse that lived in our trailer last summer like the drawer where we stored toilet paper (under the fridge). When tom saw it -- it camew from under the sink. It ran around on top of the countertops dropping it's do-do there.
It got in the drawers where the dishrags and pot holders were. And tore them up.
No evidence was found in the sleeping quarters. Imagine one of them buggers running across you when you are sound asleep.
We found no evidence of them in the upper cabinets, just the lower ones.
Tom had one in his truck that was caught in the mouse trap. Tom had left some food in the truck. Little debbies, crackers and or course paper towels.
After we got the cat, we have seen no evidence of it any more. The cat stared at the opening under the sink but if it caught it there was no evidence. Just the presense of a mouser may be enough to keep them gone.
good luck with the dog getting rid of them.

There are two ways to die in the desert.
One is by thirst and the other is drowning.

We have had the pleasure of that experience. Remember the cat, champion mouser of our house? We believe that she deliberately brings them to our room (and bed) for sport. It's a rude awakening causing both of us to bolt straight up and out of the bed.

"You catch it"
"No you catch it"

The cat looks on...

Not knowing enough to be afraid... (I know more than I did, but I did it anyway!)
