    Hello. I was wondering if anyone can help? I have mice in my house under the flooboards. I am using a humane mouse trap but this is not enough. I can lift the floorboards in my lounge and I want to use poison. I am really worried abvout my cat finding one of the poisoned mice and eating it. What effective poison is safe for cats?

    dont bother.

    get the "tom and gerry style" mouse traps

    it kills them there and then, unlike poison which kills them slowly, then you have to find the dead mouse.

    put a small slice of mars bar on as bait, or as i found out last night half a do-nut works well too (i have the pictures)

    Put the cat under the floorboards and the mice will disappear in no time.

    If you have mice then your cat is rubbish, get a new cat!
    Or maybe your cat & mouse are the real Tom & Jerry, the mouse being the smarter of the 2 :D

    mice are easy, traps and plenty of them, I used to use cracker with a bit of jam on, but yeah chocolate is recommended, I just resent giving them any

    the mice dispeared when the rats arrived, now that is man's work, got 14 traps, poison and a electric one down there

    the poison is dicey but it helps show when there's one 'about' and I've got full access to the crawl space under the house, you can always find them in the end when they smell enough

    bloody things
