oh yes, we live in a re-done old carriage house in the woods of vermont, so mice are routine thing for us! It totally grosses me out to trap them, if I need to, I end up just throwing the trap and mouse away because I cant stand to remove the dead mouse from the trap! I just bought some granulated bobcat urine that is supposed to repel mice. you can sprinkle is around the outside of your foundation and also put it in cheesecloth sacks and put them in drawers/ under cabinets, etc. It's all natural and non-toxic, which I'm psyched about. Also, you don't have to deal with dead mice. I just got it at the beginning of the week and am going to put it out today, so I'll keep you updated on how it works!
