Household Pests

Well, when I went away I had a regular visiting mouse. It wouldn't leave when politely requested to do so. Eventually I set traps. One was caught on the morning of my departure and two more while I was away. So far, this week, it has been all quiet on the Mouse Front. I'm also glad to say that I've not been invaded by ants. In 2006 a whole colony tried to move in and I had to get out weapons of mass destruction. Now I am on a slug hunt. I've seen it's slimy trail over the kitchen floor and hope to surprise it in the early hours when I make an unannounced visit of inspection. I don't know what it is about this house but the wildlife will persist in trying to move in with us.

Have the same problem with mice and slugs. Came downstairs one morning, to be greeted by a dead mouse in the dogs drinking bowl. Who needs sophisticated mouse traps? DH thought that it probably died of hypothermia rather than drowning. Slugs invade out kitchen every night. UGH.
