The mice are back

The mice have clearly returned – even though the weather is surprisingly mild for the time of year, it’s still clearly chilly enough to send them scurrying indoors. They’ve been scrabbling around in the evenings above my chair in the living room, and spending their nights tap-dancing above my bed. I checked just a few weeks ago, and there was plenty of bait left up in the loft, but that can’t have been enough because it’s clearly not stopped them.

So I had to call out Martin the pest controller, who turned up first thing this morning, his usual cheery self, and reported that the mice indeed appeared to have been having a party in my loft. I don’t think he meant that there were empty cans and cigarette stubs up there, but all the bait had been taken and there were lots of fresh droppings. He left a load more bait in strategically placed heaps up in the loft, and I renewed my rolling contract with him for another year. I’m sure I’ll get my money’s worth out of it yet again!

    guess its a good money earner for him this time of year. Probably in his business plan as simple, easy income.

    I had mouse run across my foot up in loft, jumped backwards and nearly went down loft hatch !

    That’s one reason why I try not to go up in my loft!
