Thank you for sharing your experiences, your humour and mice sagas with the forum.

Well done shabba


Sorry I missed your milestone!!

Many congratulations - how are the mice??



Hi PP!

OMG-found another dead mouse in the kitchen this morning belly up-it was horrible-i feel sorry for my postman, because he has now got in the habit of saving my sanity by shovelling them up and putting them in the bin for me-A REAL GENT!!!!:eek:

Up to date caught 3 live ones and had 2 dead ones:eek: how many more!!! they have pink funny tails and everything and really yellow teeth-eek!! ughhhh makes me shudder just typing this !!

Thanks for asking xx:eek:


Too bloody late BB!!! thread now opened-yeh senior member does sound like an old man todger uggghhhh! better think of a name! I'm glad i'm giving you a good impression of me-Ref: suggested names I think peroxide mouse trapper is the one!!!;) xxx


Oooh Shabba - I'm sure you'd be really proud of me and OH today! OH shot two HUGE and I mean HUGE rats with his air-rifle today. They have been living in and around Jerry's stable for weeks so hubby took the air-rifle up there today and sat patiently til dusk. Then one appeared - big mistake. Hubby shot it instantly. About 5 mins later, 2nd one appeared - only to be dispatched instantly!

I'm not under any illusions though - I know there'll be several more living near the stable but I have to say I am quite impressed with hubby's shot. Very accurate!




(in the best possible way!!);)

A shotgun is definately the way to go(better than pink oven gloves a shot of whiskey and a brave postman any day!!!!)


I'll hire him out for a reasonable fee to anyone!

He actually quite enjoys the whole thing to be honest - it's a boy thing!

That said, I was quite impressed with the accuracy of his shot - he got both rats in the head from about 100 yards!

Another (cruel but effective) way of dispatching of rats and mice is to use the swing-bin method. Paste the lid of a swing-bin with peanut butter, rat jumps onto lid, lid swings, rat falls into bin.

You can either have the bin full of water therefore drowning rat after rat is exhausted from swimming or be prepared to kill rat with shovel etc.


Way to go, Shabba.... very, very cool. And still on here after 6 months motivating us newbies! Thank you and CONGRATULATIONS!! :D:D
