:-( I could not catch the mouse last night; the traps were exactly the way I had left them. I am going to try and empty the remaining cardboard boxes and see if the mouse is holed up in there...still I would have expected it to be drawn towards raisin dipped in peanut butter!
But now I am scared. If the mouse is not in the basement, where could it be? Please don't tell me it has moved upstairs from the basement because I took away its food source and threw out the nest.
1. Should I set traps on my upper two floors as well? If yes, where should I place them?
2. Do I need to call an exterminator? Can they confirm and declare a house mouse-free?
3. What materials other than concrete can I use to seal the entry point in the ground/mud? And where do I buy it?
4. Is it possible the mouse left the way it came in?
Thanks in advance,
