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.
