Thread: Rat/mouse Problem

  1. #1
    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

    you can buy a sticky tray that mice and rats get caught in. then again you have to kill them then which is not nice.

    I had to empty the traps at an old summer job which meant going around with a shovel and whacking the rats who had been caught with the trays then whacking them in the bin with it.

    it was a lovely job especailly when turning up to work hungover.
