    Or how about Air? I very seldom need to adjust the pressure in my tires summer or winter and now my wife's new car tells her when it needs resuscitation. Build me a better mouse trap, then I'll get excited. Mind you the weasel we had living in with us last winter did a smashing job. Hope it visits again this year.

    The second mouse always gets the cheese Jim, I would suggest using 2 mouse traps........plus I've heard they don't like coconuts, you could spread these liberally around the property.

    Put sticky caramel on as bait, works like a charm.

    They do like chocolate Dave, I think all mice must be female:ymdevil:
    I used Mars bar too just because the caramel makes it more difficult for the little beggars to get it off the trigger.

    Yes Tony, we had a couple of mice in the loft, but I originally thought it was one. When I heard the trap went for a look and found one mouse dead but no KitKat bait. Refilled the trap and got the second one a bit later.

    We usually use peanut butter, sticks to the roof of their mouth and they for sure spring the trap. I wish I could figure how to get the pics of Pop our weasel that took care of things for us last winter. He'd come within about a foot of us to eat scraps. And get a drink of water Trinity put out for it. That's the second one we've had live with us and not a mouse to be stirring at Xmas.I think we're getting a bit off topic and Gaz is going to shut us down soon!! JIM

    I am mate but when you own a villa there's always something to do. Either that or you can pay someone to do it for you.
