A couple of days ago some mouse droppings appeared under the fridge. Time to set the traps. First night out and success! One little mouse quickly dead.
We've battled mice in the chook shed before and found the traditional, low tech sprung trap on a wooden base work better than any of the fancy new contraptions. Not so for rats. They are way too smart to be caught in the larger version of the same trap. Unfortunately, we had to resort to using poison on the large and healthy family of rats that moved into the chook shed last spring.
