Mouse In My Apartment - HELP!!
I live in a 3-family house and I rent the top floor of the house. I've had a little brown mouse in my kitchen for weeks and I can't seem to get rid of it. Let me add that I have baseboard heating throughout the apartment. I have a bamboo stand in my kitchen in front of the baseboard heater which I never use. I've seen the mouse run under the bamboo stand and also jump into the baseboard heater. I've set glue traps, snap traps, no-see glue traps and even peppermint oil on cotton balls. Nothing seems to catch it.
I CANNOT afford an exterminator and my LL is very elderly and she probably won't pay for one and I can't even afford to split one with her. I feel like I have a pet with me it's been here so long. My roommate is just as terrified as I am to go near it. We're a bit leary to use the poison pellets - then we'll have a dead mouse in the walls.
Any suggestions on how to trap this creature?
