The scratching behind my walls hasn’t stopped – I hear it all the time now… It must be mice, but how many are there? There must be so many, to make so much noise. I can’t afford an exterminator, and I don’t want strangers in the house anyway.
I bought some of those sticky mouse traps and set them around some of the loudest areas of the house, where the scratching was most prevalent. I put out two traps the first night and they disappeared without a trace. I assume the mice got partially stuck on them and dragged them away, but I thought I would have found them by now. I put out another two and tacked them to the floor, but they’re gone now too. Today I went out and picked up some ‘real’ traps, the wire kind – they should do the trick. I’m going to set them all out tonight and hope I catch something… Mice, I mean – I hope I catch mice.
