I HATE mice.
There I said it.
They have hearts, lungs, kidneys, eyes, ears.....things that normal bugs and insects just don't have.
Lions and tigers have hearts, lungs, kidneys, eyes, ears and you don't see them breaking into your house sneaking around, scampering across your kitchen floor while you let out a blood-curdling scream which causes your loved ones to run to you expecting to see that you just accidentally cut a limb off- do you?
Because I live in a wetland area, white-footed deer mice enter the neighborhood houses around this time of the year to settle in for the cold winter.
Last year we hired a mouse expert to get rid of them.
For $300 he threw packets of poison in the attic and basement. He then proceeded to give us extensive medical and nutritional advice in a very low Southern accent for over an hour. If anything it was entertaining. And expensive. And unsolicited.
And when the mice died, they died in the walls, which smelled awful.
This year I'm taking a different, less expensive route....with plain old, run-of-the-mill, mouse traps.
Let this be a warning to all mice, Yew Nork Babe's got her game on!
