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

You can no longer post a link as before, you have to highlight a word and click on the world symbol and paste in the link.

"bubonic plague was spread by flees"

Specifically by animal fleas. The infective agent is actually a bacterium which lives in the digestive tract of the flea, and it passes to humans via a flea-bite. It is possible for the bacteria to live in human fleas, but it's a very rare occurrence.

"....you have to highlight a word and click on the world symbol and paste in the link."

Or....

copy the link, click on the green 'world'icon and paste the link into the field - best to delete the 'http' that you see highlighted when the box opens.

Then you can type whatever you like inside the brackets where it says 'enter link description here'. Delete those words first, of course. That way you can make your link say anything you like

If it's best to delete the 'http', why do you not delete it from the page offered to help us simpletons!

Have I just been lucky? I don't have the globe anyway.

Alphakil Mouse Killer by Rentokil is very effective. They die within 2 inches of the bait tray, so you can dispose of the remains. Do not use the Rat killer which is wheat based and totally useless.

morddwyd - That is another acceptable way of posting a link. The problem occurs with links that contain underbars and some other characters. Sometime the only way out is to use tinyurl.
