I've only been home for vacation for about two weeks, and I've been hearing a lot of scurrying and scratching sounds coming from the attic. My sister said she'd been hearing those noises since probably November, when it started getting real cold outside. I also moved one of our couches out today and found some "presents". Any tips on how to get rid of them? I've surveyed the house and looked for possible cracks and holes where they could've gotten in. My guess is that they are getting in through the attic vent, and I won't be able to seal that off myself. So right now it seems control is our best option. My plan of action is to get some poisoned bait for the attic and snap traps for the rest of the house. Your thoughts? I know the issue with poisoned bait is that if a mouse dies in between the walls, it's going to stink. However, since I'm only using it in the attic and it's freezing cold up there, maybe the decomposition won't happen and they'll just be frozen/mummified? Any help is appreciated.
