been having trouble with broadband and computers for months so havnt been able to access internet for soom time,we have had massive mouse problem here for last 3/4 months,been thousands the little buggers every where,cats been having a ball,but not helping,doing the usual cat thing bringing the mice inside and playing with them,then losing them inside as well adding to the problem inside,so we had mouse traps every where inside,catching 5/6 every day,but not keeping up with those that been coming inside thru open doors and cats escapees etc,time to get a gun out,not wanting to blow holes in skirting etc chose to use a pcp twinmaster 177 cal target pistol and flat nosed target pellets,this super accurate pcp pistol pretty low powered chronoed it with 7.5 target pellets at 350fps,didnt even dent the skirting,beauty we in busseness,i shoot flys off the porch rail with this gun out to 10meters,so no probs with mice eh!!been getting 5/7 mice a day inside for several months,tally now up around 100 mice now inside,evan got 3 off the curtain rails above sliders amazing where the little buggers can get,got one hanging off the straps on set expensive binoes hanging off curtain rail,bit tricky shot that one,didnt want damage the binos eh!,must be getting too cold for them now,coz the hawk thats been sitting on back yars fence post ang catching them on lawn hasnt visited for a while,cats not catching then either,and havnt shot one for bout week n half either,guna have find something else to shoot by looks of it,but lot fun while it lasted,have to wonder how much damage the buggers would have done inside if hadnt trapped and shot as mant as we did eh!!

wow thats a lot of mice. we had a mouse problem too for a little while no where near as bad as you. We were only getting around 3 or 4 a day total in the 5 traps around the house. peanut butter is the way to go for that! we cleared them out in a couple of weeks

peanut butter definatly the way to go,they cant get it off trap so have to get in trap to get it,been using peanut butter for rats/mice /possum traps for years,allso use it on cynide baits,coz they cant spit it out eh.we caught prob bout 100 in traps as well,they gone now but was pretty intence there for a while i had never seen mice numbers like it before,yet stangely enuf there were no rats. cheers mike
