Re: Really gross..I feel for you, I had mice in the last house I rented and the little F***ers had NO FEAR, they would come out and climb the walls while we watched TV! Now, I completely agree that you have to get rid of them, but may I just say one thing?
Please, for the love of all that is good and kind, DON'T USE GLUE TRAPS!!
It's the most horrendous death, they mostly die of terror, starvation or blood loss when they gnaw through their own limbs trying to get away. Ideally I'd say don't use kill-traps at all, but I really can't preach because the humane traps in my house did nothing, and I had to resort to snap-traps. If killing them is the only way you can get them out, then you have to do it, they carry so many diseases and are incontinent so they pee EVERYWHERE they go. (Doesn't bear thinking about, ewww!!)
But please, I implore you, I would kneel down for this if I was in your presence, don't use sticky traps.
I have 8 fancy rats, so rodent issues are close to my heart, but I think it's basic humanity to give them a quick, clean death. Oh, and if you're baiting traps - peanut butter. Peanut butter all the way. There is NOTHING my little boys wouldn't do to get some peanut butter, it's like rodent ambrosia!
PS: For the record, rats are not incontinent - mine are actually litter-tray trained!
