I was far, far too optimistic to hope I had managed to rid my abode of mice. A week after we returned from our trip, my spouse spotted yet another varmint. This time in the LIVING ROOM and the little sucker ran into the KITCHEN and went into the cupboard where my COOKING PANS are.
Of course you know, this means war.
At this point, there is no food they can get to, at all. Everything in my pantry is now in glass. All bread is in the microwave. Everything else is fridge or freezer. There is nothing here to tempt them. There never really was, given I didn't see any signs of chew marks on anything, ever. But for some reason they have moved into my townhouse. I have now heard them scratching at the walls between us and the neighbors.
And all I can really think is, now what? Seems like those sonic repellers, of which I now have six in my home, do pretty much nothing. Well, that was always a possibility.
The land lady has been notified. No response yet.
Where is my kitchen stuff possibly safe? Do I have to find a way to pull everything out of the cupboards on the ground and only use the ones over the sink? That's gonna put a dent into my dish holding capacity for certain. Otherwise, I'm going to have to wash my pans all the time. And I don't even like that idea because if the mice are ... are ON MY PANS then I don't think I even want to touch them.
Trap was empty this morning.
MY PANS. Not to mention my KITCHEN and my LIVING ROOM.
Calm. Yes. Calm. We are eating out every meal today as I try to figure out how to deal with this. Just not sure. This is nuts.
