Mouse house

So, I just saw a mouse run behind my bed. That's gonna make going to sleep really easy tonight.

Our rat hasn't been around for a month or so (he ate the poison), but we just saw a mouse in the kitchen on Friday, and now he/she/they have moved upstairs. Considering we saw a couple cockroaches in the bathroom last week, we have really hit the vermin jackpot in this house -- ants in the fall, rats in early winter, cockroaches and mice in late winter. Perhaps we'll be overrun by possums this summer.

I certainly hope our cleanliness isn't as bad as this pest surplus would seem to indicate...

It wouldn't have to be all that bad; just marginally worse than your neighbors.

I suspect it's the opposite: I know the five guys who live next door are filthy, which might breed vermin that spill over into our place (which, while okay, is not exactly a shining domestic utopia).

The biggest factor might actually be the shoddily-built pantry extension on the back of our house, which seems to be the point of entry for most of the critters...
