I know we live in the country in an old farm house. Mice are a fact of life.
I have a love hate relationship with the mice. In cartoons I think they are cute. We love Tumtum and Nutmeg and we love Brambly Hedge. The problem starts when the mice start coming in my house. I sort of tolerate them in my cupboards and drawers. I have everything in there all mouse-proof. It's when they start 'playing' on my counters at night that I have to draw the line.
Any one have any help for getting rid of the mice? And don't bother suggesting blocking up holes, did I mention I live in an old farmhouse -ha ha.
