We live in a duplex, we have the bottom floor and a basement. We have a 100 pound german shepherd. His food is in the kitchen and we are both working during the day.
We recently have had mice - how do we know? Well, for one I have seen the little buggers (I would like to say worse) running in the kitchen and they seem to love the dog's food - which is a special food from the vet - and the hide it in my couch under the cushions - which they also use as a toilet.
We have put 4 traps out - around the areas we see them and where we have caught them before - so far in 3 days nothing. Do I need to be more patient? I am trying to not be afraid of them but I just can't. Any advice.
