Update on the mouse situation: I'm not happy and Raven is really not happy.

The remaining glue trap was untouched, but both spring-traps had the bait licked clean without, however, any concomitant firing of the trigger mechanism.

Somewhere in the basement, I imagine the rodents are smacking their little mouse lips and chortling at the naivety of this building's humans.

So, escalation is in order. I have harpooned chucks of cheese on the bait-trays, and we will soon see whether they can eat that without suffering the consequences! This entry was originally posted at http://ed-rex.dreamwidth.org/223985.html. Comment there using OpenID, or here as per normal.

Poison them. There are always more mice. You can trap and murder individuals infinitely. The only way to End It is to poison them.

I hate mice. :P

Holding off on the weapons of mass

I'm still hoping we had us a couple of scouts and not a fully-established colony.

Had four snap traps baited last night, along with the remaining glue, and nothing was touched over-night, not a lick of peanut butter or a piece of cheese missing.

Raven's pushing for the chemical warfare too, but I'm holding firm on giving it another few days. (Wish us luck!)
