I'm a hard man when it comes to small rodents invading my home.

I got another one last night. On a chocolate baited trap

Watch out house mouse-s

I am now a man on a mission.

So, will you come to Boston and kill some mice? In a way that I will not be able to see or otherwise witness any of it?

SNAP.

actually A kid from Boston told me he was looking forward to going to Florida because he couldnt see the stars in Boston (light pollution).

Not being able to see the stars would suck so I dont think I can help you.

I see the stars just fine. Methinks the kid was looking down. Today is an awesomely clear day. Even the mice are seeing stars -- or they will if whupped upside the head.

It's true. You can't see the stars there like you can here.
I remember when I moved here from Waltham and one of the first things I noticed was all the stars you could see here at night. It's amazing the stars we got over here.

we had ourselves a kitchen visit thursday night while making dinner.
critter crawled into the floor-mounted heating vent.
the vents are old and don't close all the way, so it was time to break out the aluminum foil and duck tape.
haven't seen our little guest since...

@Region Philbis,
Hmmm. Unless you covered all of them, you have not solved your problem. If you did cover them, it's gonna get kinda cold when you need the furnace.

@Intrepid,
yep.
i only covered that one -- it runs into a horizontal duct in the basement.
i'm quite sure our duct system doubles as a mousey highway in the summer...

@Region Philbis,
I'm thinking in October the travelers on the highway will get a thermal surprise.

@Region Philbis,
I have a remedy for you but I'm not sure you'll want to hear it since it involves killing them. But it worked for me (and I like mice. I just don't like mouse ****. In my kitchen. At all. Not to mention hanta virus, but that has to do more with my new home area than where I had the mice, by the ocean in california.)

So, back in a minute while I see if I can find the name of this miracle contraption.. that worked better that all my other efforts.

OK, it's Victor electronic mouse trap. I just looked at mine, handy in the garage just in case I need it, and it still has some old peanut butter in there. I even have two, given the height of my determination whatever year that was.
What can I say, it took out the family.

right now it's just the occasional sighting.

if we start seeing multiple meese and/or meese mess, we might hafta resort to traps...

@Region Philbis,
Kind of goes along with Craven's Loyal Pets thread, doesn't it. After going through all this, she still loves you.

@roger,
I started my day with an eek.

I was in the kitchen, rinsing last night's dishes prior to stuffing them in the dishwasher, when the tenant emerged from behind the stove, darted to under the phone (this is all on the floor; the tenant did not climb onto the counters or anything). Then the tenant (after I had duly eeked) darted back behind the stove.

Now all our downstairs clocks are flashing noon. I blame the tenant.
