Brought to you by the letter " M "

NO, these are NOT
Sex Toys,

Nor are these!!!

And NO,

I'm not a masochist!!

Definitely not a sadist!!!

What is all of this about you may ask.....???

Well, this post is brought to you by the letter M, MMMMMMMMM


I thought that I had it licked, well that Lily had licked the problem, yes literally, but alas, just like deer, when you see one, you know there are a herd, flock, gaggle, coven, pod. Whatever way you want to put it....there are always more than ONE!

There are MICE in my house!!!!

So, after work today I bought a couple of the old snap 'em traps and yup, before I got them all set up I'd snapped my fingers, my top, I had peanut butter in my hair and Lily had hightailed it out of the house because of all the "F" bombs that were falling!

I'll let you know how it all works out after I get back from my run tonight!!!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily, Lily, Lily! You better get on top of this if you want to stay on payroll. :-0 Just ignore the chipmunks for a moment and get to work - ok!? Otherwise I'll send Trouble over to teach you a thing or two. :-)

I remember Pixie and Dixie! LOL

ugh... I too hate meeces to peeces! double eeeeewwwwww!

good luck.

I have a friend who swears by the sound sonar things... that makes noise only meeces can hear - it keeps them away.
If you go that route, let me know.

Snap traps are by far the best. I can catch a mouse in a snap trap in under 10 minutes.

Oh my. We once set a bunch of traps and they were going off on the other side of the room before we even had them all set. My hub still calls it "the infestation". It was just in the garage but ick, it was enough. Good luck!

Rudy said...

I've got one of those sonar things in the garage. I don't think it works.

snap traps, hair trigger yeah, that's the ticket

Viv said...

Oh Lilly good luck on getting tose cratures outta of there. Eeek I would be freaking out!

Marcy said...

ROFLMAO HAHAHAHAHAA OMG girl, if those wee sex toys I was going to say . . .you're into some freaky stuff. It's always the ones that you don't think ;-)

Dang I hope you get those suckas out ASAP. Totally stinky!

Kim said...

Eeeks! You're a runner-aren't you fast enough to catch those critters? LOL! Best of luck-and yes-you did scare me with those contraptions you posted!

Get some snakes and your mice problems will go away. Then get some ferrets for the snakes...

Nitmos said...

Hmmm, are you sure? I'll take your word for it.

We just put out some poison pellets and the mice gobbled em up and disappeared. Somewhere behind my drywall I have a bunch of mouse carcasses.

I'm with you on hating mice. We had some out in our shed earlier this year. Yuck.

A shovel upside the head does a good job on them.

Steve Stenzel said...

I was going to comment on your most recent post and wish you "Happy 4th" even though you're a little north, but then I saw "No these are NOT sex toys" and I couldn't pass it up!!

Good luck with the mice! My cats take care of the few we ever have!

I once had a mouse infestation--we caught 24 mice in 2 days once so I know how you feel! Usually the little varmints try to get into your house in nid to late August so they have a firmly established nest before winter. But this is a puzzlement. Are they trying to get in out of the storms??

Vickie said...

Oh, p.s., they like peanut butter and toothpaste. The gel kind.
