Mouse Hunt Tip of the Day

Most of us do not want to keep wild mice as pets...in fact, we probably don't really want them in our houses/apartments or what have you. It has been my experience that unless you want one of these little furry critters to make a nice home of your home, you should not store the cat/dog/other animal food underneith the sink, or in any other low cabinet. In addition, when these little fuzzy guys see a clear liquid in a plastic bottle, they tend to go for that as well. So, unless you wish to have a well fed, alcoholic mouse in your house, store these items in a higher or more secure place...the cat can't catch what he can't find! Force these little guys out into the open.

Any advice for rats? Our office had rat infestation...which was horrible, and it was likely due to the fact that AC's physical plant neglected to clean our office. It was quite disturbing, as you can imagine.

Put them to work in the kitchen. Rats excel at cooking; "Muppets Take Manhattan" is a great example of this. If, however, you'd rather get rid of them altogether, buy vultures. I think that will remedy the "infestation". Once the vultures get rid of the rats, though, there's not much you can do with them. Vultures are notoriously bad cooks, but they might be good at filing things. You just never know until you try.

Um, just to clarify: my comment was about the rats, not the runners. I have no idea how the runners perform in the kitchen.

If it was caused by a lack of a clean office, then I suggest cleaning the office...there, problem solved!

OMG, Kris, thanks for posting those results...I couldn't find them online...AND, my time last year was 50:30, so it wasn't MORE than a minute less than my last year's time, which means, I don't have to run the mini! OMG! Hah!

I know, I know...I looked up your time last year just to be sure. Just so you can look up everyone else that you thought you might want to, here's the link for the results. They are still in order of the finishing times, not chip times, and the pace they give is not for chip times either...not the best use of the chip if you ask me, but they didn't!
