I just moved into a new house and I've already got a mouse problem. This being the middle of summer, I'm dreading the first cold spell! I had rodent problems so bad last fall that I moved out until I could get the mice, ground squirrels AND rats cleared out. It got cold and they all moved in. Hired a professional exterminator that said in his decades of experience that he'd never seen anything like it. Destroyed everything in my pantry that wasn't in buckets. I sold that house....in no small part because of the rodent invasion. I just don't think I can go through it again! I have sticky traps down and they seem to be fuzzy enough to spare the hair it takes to get off of them successfully. I'm desperate! I'm extremely allergic to cats. I'm at the point of looking into those weird hairless cats or getting a pet snake. Suggestions please!
