Hi John, thanks for the quick reply. Yes I know they can't see too good, that's why I put "looked" in quotation marks LOL. He was smelling me though. And they certainly can detect movement - that mouse was up and down the worktop I don't know how many times with my spatula whizzing past his head at every turn. But then he sort of turned, stood up and faced me and it was like he was saying "OK just do it and get it over with". Of course not quite the same as setting a trap and walking away until the deed is done LOL.
I guess the door will have to go then. It's the smell I can't handle John. I have a really sensitive sense of smell (the rest of the family don't complain), and I generally know they're in the house several days before anyone hears or sees them. I think they're using the space between the ceiling and floor of one or two upper rooms (we have an attic conversion) to live in, and only some of them venture down. We often hear them in ceilings, walls etc over a period of a few days or a week and then they just disappear again without us ever SEEING any signs. Maybe they're just using our house as a toilet LOL - at the moment I'm finding the smell almost unbearable and it gives me the heebie jeebies :o I'm not talking a dead mouse smell btw, just that musky mouse pee smell I guess it must be.
Anyway John, think I'll go and have one more look around the house for any other possible entry routes, and then start making plans for that door. Keep up the good work.
