How do you get rid of mice and rats? I saw one scurrying by the back steps in our yard. DH said he saw one in the garage. I know they carry diseases and plus they gross me out big time. But given that Wolfie has access to the backyard (sometimes unsupervised) I'm afraid to use anything poisonous. My fear is that he'll eat the poisoned critter and get really sick. I'm pretty sure the mice don't croak right next to the poison, right? They can probably wander off anywhere. So what do you use that has worked in the past?
