Bats I know nothing about... but mice?  I got a solution for that.  Click the link.  (Warning, not for Ophidiophobes.)

Sometimes you do things like that, and the world doesn't get the private joke.  See, Kankakee is kind of a redneck, illiterate town.  We have a "Speak out" section in the local paper, and they print whatever the populace sends in.  So there was this one lady who wrote in that they should spray for bats, because the bats are always swooping down, and they lay their eggs in your hair.
Well, my wife saw this, and she was literally in tears laughing about it.  She just had to share it with me.  I too was more than a little amused, especially when darling Laura read the letter to me in her best trailer park drawl.
So now whenever bats are brought up, Neither Laura or I can resist the mention of bat eggs.  Yew see ah may be dumb, but I ain't literate....

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"

That's a cute bat. 

For  mice, McGuyver says run a piece of wire through a spool and string the wire across the top of a 5 gal. bucket.  Coat the spool with peanut butter and put water in the bottom of the bucket.  They spin the spool and fall in.

And yes, mice can swim, but not more than a few hours...

As for finding the entrance?  Well, it's a house...  1/4" openings are pretty common...  My guess is that they come in through the garage which has a goofy door that doesn't always close tight.

I've told Jeff this at least 1/2 dozen times. Jeff hates cats. That's why I keep telling him to get a cat. Amazing how well you like an animal when it does what it's supposed to do!

We have a ton of stuff in a barn in agricultural Racine where we store all spare bikes, parts, and Roger's car. Yeah. they have 3 cats. We have no mice. No mouse droppings, no mouse pawprints, no mousie chew marks, no nests of mice, no wrecked electrical wiring. We have seen cat prints on the car and found one pile of cat poo on the floor. I'll take that for peace of mind. No mouse traps, no mouse bait, no mouse poison.


Hey Jeff, get a cat!   :preachon:

1.  I hate cats
2.  Wife is allergic to cats
3.  1 dog is deathly afraid of cats
4.  Other dog simply wants to eat cats


The list went on and on but the rest all fell under category 1...

And don't get me wrong.  I don't mind that other people have cats, in fact, I'll probably pet them when they come over.  I just don't want any myself...

See, and all that is why I hate cats...  Because I refuse to be subservient to an animal...  They're arrogant creatures, and well, that doesn't go well with my arrogance...
