An early phone call from a friend asked me for advice. He had a mouse chasing around his sitting room last night. As he is without a cat what should he do?
This man seems not to have had this problem before!
I recounted the tale from my childhood of the day I went to play with my dolls house and found it inhabited by several mice!
My mother caught them in some sticky stuff and drowned them! I remembered how they screamed...it was not a pleasant experience!
When I lived in Chelmsford and had mice the local authority sent along a rat catcher...even though we didn't have rats....it all came under the same heading.....and he very efficiently cured the problem, leaving a poison under the bath to prevent any further infestation.
None of this was in any way helpful to my friend who was going off this morning to get some traps!
I am not sure how common this problem is now.
Here , the old farmhouse would be very attractive to any rodent I suspect...with lots of interesting corners to explore...but so far so good! I am trying not to let my mind go there!
What I do want to know though is, do the council still send out the rat catcher if needed?
It's not a problem I have at present but as I no longer have my dog or my cat in the house I have to accept that it could possibly be a problem in the future!
Answers on a postcard please!
