Okay, I'm an animal lover...really I am (except snakes...don't get harp on me about how great they are either). BUT, we have mice!!! :scaredeyes: Apparently they loved our birdseed (again, no need to harp about how the seed attracts mice because I know that and thoughtt we alluded the problem by putting the seed in sealed plastic containers) and decided to set up camp in our screened in deck. We've caught 4 mice so far and have been using "humane" traps. Well, the traps aren't so humane because the mice still died. Luckily we haven't had them in the house yet. They're just finding a way onto the deck. So here are my questions: 1. Should we call a pest company to come and set up the poison traps (we have dogs)? 2. Should we keep setting our traps (or will that just attract even more mice)? I'm not going to set any snap traps because that's just wrong nor will I set the glue traps. 3. Should we let them go and figure they'll move on once the weather gets warmer? and don't bother with the, "you should get a snake and that will take care of your mice problem" comments. Thanks for any help!
