Yesterday noticed ants in the house. Opened pantry door and found two small piles of poop. Very little poop but thinking we must have mice! Have not seen any ... just the end results. Not sure how to contain them or the ants as I have a toddler and am afraid to try anything that could cause her harm. Would have pest control (spray house perimeter) for ants work? As for the mice, we have an unfinished basement, could they be hiding there and coming up at night looking for snacks? We keep a pantry in the basement too. Have only seen droppings so far in kitchen closet. Maybe I will take a look in the hall closet tonight to be sure. The sticky traps sound like they work the best, but sound really messy. Not sure I can handle that. But also pretty sure I don't want to share my house with uninvited guest.
