Grey Mice in My NEW Kitchen! Cute pics but geez...
We recently renovated our kitchen (months ago) and have been finding droppings on our countertops - yuck. So we've set live traps over and over again...keep catching one per evening and setting them way out in the woods. I just read up about how to exterminate them and understand that we need way more traps.
Here's my question. The little buggers keep coming in through the stove where the control buttons are. DH took apart the back of the stove to see if there was a nest and he can't seem to get into that little compartment where the buttons are, assured me it's sealed. So where are they coming from or going to?
This little guy was out this morning as we ate breakfast I caught him on my stove eating the leftovers. This is very unnerving. I disinfect the whole surface of the counters and the stove every day and night and we don't leave food out - but I just fininshed cooking breakfast and was going in to clean up our plates and here he is caught red-handed! It's just so disgusting. And I'm tired of disinfecting only to find more "evidence" the next morning.
And by the way...that fork was to the left of the plate. I watched him drag it about 12 inches. He's touched every inch of the surface of the stove - not just a little path. He went right around the teapot on his hind legs so now I know I have to clean absolutely everything.
