• I assume so. Does your voice work? Did you want to speak to a member of staff? If so you might want to put this in the Answerbag staff category.
  • Of course. If you have a mobile phone or telephone, you can call a friend or relative and speak to them to arrange to meet up in person.
  • Lol! I've been saying that a lot lately,. Not as much as you use to that's for sure. Everything is online or automated. It's two in the morning here in UK, I'm staying with family, and I'm being haunted by bloody mice, I'm bonding with those who are also being kept awake at this hour by the scratching sound that feels you with dread, and playing high pitched sounds from YouTube, I have learned they do not like it and will exit the vicinity for the period the noise is playing, only down side is I can hear it too, it's like having really bad tinnitus!. Being tag teamed by I believe two, one I've named Nigel, who comes into the bedroom via the door, as soon as I get in bed, where as the fatter one comes via the heater cupboard, but hell there's probably more as they all look the same. They avoid sticky pads and humane traps loaded with peanut butter, I have bought the traditional snap traps today, will give these babies a go tomorrow, but these mice are getting cleverer as the human population gets dumber. I have dipped balls of tissue in bleach which they don't like the smell of and put them around bedroom with windows open so I don't die of the fumes. Can't put poison down due to animals and young children in the house. Roll on tomorrow.

      I caught my brother's pet mouse by putting a board up to the bathtub and putting pieces of chocolate up the board and in the tub. They can't climb out. You might want to try ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones (or both.) Frankly I'd get an exterminator. Mice will eat your electrical wires and the wall interiors and destroy the house.

      The old timers say to mash dryer sheets into whatever crevises the mice go through, but I tried that and they just took the dryer sheets to make nest or bedding. I tried Linda Joy's tub trick before and it works.

      Yeah I've not heard the tub trick, my cousins stuffed wire sponges into some crevices as they don't like chewing through them, but her house is plasterboard walls so the mice just chew through them, was awake still at 6,30am, reading all the tricks to try, did have be laughing, one was baking soda as rodents apparently can't pass wind, but then some were saying how they appear to be evolving past the baking soda stage as well, and lapping the stuff up with no effect, I also read, Putin's opinion on the history of Ukraine, not a light read, but took my mind off of the mice for a bit!

      Maybe there is clever idea: Phone Russian FSB and tell them mice are Western spy, then, tomorrow mice "disappear."
