We were all sitting in the living room and watching television last week and Koko was doing his usual "patty-cake" routine on my daughter, when he suddenly ran off her and went running over to the heating vent. Naturally, I was curious, so I went over and looked through the grate and saw a little tail and a small brown butt. Great, the mice have gotten into the ducts.
I knew that we had mice under our house, but I had no idea that they had chewed through the ducts. This means that I am going to have to go down there, find where they chewed the hole, and then tape it back up. In order to do this, I'm going to have to invest in a good work light (it's always nice to see what I'm doing) and try to put a curb on my claustrophobia.
Luckily, it seems that they have only gotten into the duct that leads to the living room. Now, after I get the duct sealed, I will still be left with mouse problem. Here's the big question: short of a very expensive call to the exterminators, does anyone know how to get rid of mice?
