Death Toll Still Rising
Just removed two more dead mice from my ceiling.
That brings the body count up to 11!
Would have left that glue trap a little longer except that it started to rank.
Last week I was advised by a couple of local agitators - to report my landlord to the *board of health* on account of the creatures stirring.
I had read of that option online, but thought it would be a hassle. I incorrectly presumed that it was an arm of the *state*.
Turns out, it's a local town agency - and they LOVE to themselves become a nuisance. You know how it goes, if they don't *do anything* in a sleepy, bloated town such as ours....the department could easily be eliminated or downsized.
Apparently they can and are eager to make life very difficult for negligent property owners - or for people they just don't like, a category I'm sure my landlord sits atop.
My walls have been noticeably quieter the past few weeks. Me and that green poison must have neutralized most of them. Though everything I read says these critters get worse in the winter. It'll be down to 15 degrees tonight; and tomorrow's HIGH will be a balmy 21!
Note that officially, winter doesn't even start for five more days.
