lmao!! Your going to do it like they do on the discovery channel? I'm now sitting here singing the Bloodhound Gang.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Mice usually leave evidence, of the solid variety. ;)

I think my husband may have said something about that. Not sure, will be asking when he gets home.

All I know is that I appreciate that we do not have the diversity of varmints in the UK as the USA!

I do know that the terriers we have would have a go at anything that is remotely smelly and wild if not told to leave it.

A mink was trapped on the fishing lakes and my Border Terrier knew better than to touch anything in a cage. However she was curious to what this smelly creature was and put her nose to the trap.
Silly bitch!
The mink bit her through the lip and nose. Never before have I seen a dogs eyes turn scarlet. The biggest bit of the mink would have covered your thumb nail and the trap was annihilated.

It is unlikely to be mice, you would small them and they will only carry off a little food and nibble at the rest. You would find a lot of crumbs.

Thinking the same thing. Now I am really worried!

Mice will actually carry off food and hide it in places to eat later. Look in boots and shoes, closets, and old boxes.

Had a co-worker who kept cat food in his bedroom for the cat. Woke up one night to find a racoon next to his bed eating the cat food. Had to start locking up the cat door at night to keep away this nocturnal visitor.
