    I would love to have gremlins rath3r than MICE aargh! I have a cupboard in the corner of my sitting room and I can hear them in there. When I go to look for them they scarper. Moment I sit down they start making noise again. I have put poison down, no luck. I read on t'internet that they don't like the smell of mint. I have put so much mint things in there that you would have thought they would need facemasks! There is also a silent noise thing that you plug in to scare them off. That obviously doesn't work. I am extremely allergic to cats so no good there. I can't cope with mousetraps and dead creatures. I am so annoyed with the pesky blighters.

    I've never had any success with mint, or mothballs, or the so-called silent scarer. But this might be an option:

    Of course, you'd still know there was a corpse inside, but you'd never have to see it - you simply chuck the whole thing away.

    The silent things only work if there are no obstructions in the way so they just avoid them by running next to walls, in cavities or under floorboards

    That's good news. I don't access the threads that way so didn't know there was a problem until you mentioned it

    You can buy humane traps :) mouse goes in for a snack and can't get out again so you just take trap outside and release where ever you want.

    I have got a couple of those but I found them tricky to get the little blighters into. One even managed to open the door and escape!

    Shouldn't be allowed to pull out once they've made an offer .... and Defo not bid again...... I guess if their own sale falls through then that would be different....
    All this stress and you didn't really want to move apart from caravan parking space
