But I had other visitors too, and they are not quite so welcome. In my potting shed I noticed a blanket had some mysterious holes. "Mousey work" I thought, spotting other tell tale signs.
As I lifted the pile of coco fibre basket liners out ran 3 mice. 'Three blind mice, three blind mice, see how they run' and I ran straight out to buy some traps. I wouldn't mind the little things coming in out of the cold but it is their habits I don't like. Poop all over the show and wee in the corners. I'm much kinder to the cotton rats, using the Havahart trap, but then they live outdoors.
They aren't even clean in their nests. The long and short of it is we have disposed of 5 mice.
I much prefer lizards and frogs.
