I live in a particularly old house (was sold for the fourth time in 1750-odd).
today, i have been hearing a scuttling noise from behind one of the skirting boards in the computer room...
i believe this noise is a rat or possibly a mouse...but i'm not sure
i have tried to lure out the creature with some bread and cheese (stereotypical food), however, it doesn't want to play game
is there any way i can dispose of the vermin without getting any mouse traps and/or cats?
my original plan was to hit it with something heavy (i have a wooden mallet and a sledgehammer ready), however, i'm frightened about possible 'spray' on impact
thanks in advance for any help/advice
