Household mice! I really need them gone.

The flat below me has had a major renovation and the resident mice have decided that it is all a bit to much and have moved upstairs to my flat where i assume they find it less noisy.

I have put down poison which they seem to love as I seem to need to have to fill up the little plastic container quite frequently.

I have tried to figure out where there hole(s) are and have sealed a few, particularly around radiator pipes etc.

I have been looking at something like this:http://www.primrose.co.uk/advanced-r...ouse-p-36.html And wondered if anyone had any experience of this type of device.

I know that the easiest thing would be to get a cat but this is not viable at the present time.

Any thoughts and suggestions wanted urgently

When we had mice many years ago we used the old fashioned mouse traps, the wooden ones with a spring to trap the mouse. Pellets from the council do work. Go to your local council to esquire to see if you can use the council to lay down pellets.

Reminds me of the time that we lived in a flat and the woman upstairs was banging away on her kitchen floor.

My mum said there must be something wrong upstairs,So we rushed up Opened her front door and into her kitchen.[You could do that in those days.]

There she was chasing a mouse with the brush without a lot of success.And guess what was standing on top of the kitchen table.

Her husband of course.

I am also a peanut butter advocate. It seems to be a mouse magnet, but it must be Sunpat smooth of course.

Rather than having mouse brains etc. plastered all around I think one of these might be what I need. Die mouse.

If a cat is out of the question and even they bring them in both alive and dead.

Why not use a plug in mouse & rat repeller as I mentioned previously, they do work.
