Yucky yucky yucky I'm freaking out!!!
Does anyone have some good advice about how to get rid of them ASAP.
I'll be going to Bunnings today and buying everything I can.
Do you know a affordable DIY way of getting it done?

We had mice in our office a work and we tried three different DIY baits before calling the pest control company. Once they had laid their baits, it was dead within a week.

Do you have a cat? We moved into an old house in January and I was horrified to find we had a rat! I freaked but I refuse to kill them, so we got a cat - there's something in the cat urine mouse & rats smell that makes them stay away - I haven't seen the rat since we got kitty in march. Maybe you could put a little tiny bit of litter with urine on it on a tray and place it just past the manhole up there and see what it does?

We has mice when we first moved in. We tried EVERYTHING available till we just gave up and called pest control out to bait them. The mice kept coming back and they got really cocky to they'd be happy to sit infront of us or get up close. Pretty much as soon as I saw a mouse ontop of our oven I had enough trying the cheap way and called pest control. Havent had a problem since and that was 3 and 1/2yrs ago.

We just got the Ratsak boxes that you just tear off the strip on top of the box. They come and eat....and they they die.
Takes about a week bit works really well.

We had mice in our house about 3 months ago, we also have a foxi and he didn't do anything lol lazy dog. We out traps down and the first night caught 2 and then didn't catch any for a while then caught another. Use peanut butter. We also have something in our roof. But I think it's a possum or something largish

Rodents are repelled by napthalene (stuff mothballs are made of) trap what you can, then spread naptalene around and they won't come back. Much better than baits imo as they don't die in random places and stink!!!
