As per the title really. Got mice behind the washing machine in the utility room. They eat the cats food.

I've tried trapping and relocating the buggers.... The cats seem to catch and eat one a week, but still the droppings persist. So time to kill them... unless anyone has any better ideas?

Rentokil do little tunnel type traps that use carbon dioxide to kill. No idea how much it costs though.

Snap traps out of cat's reach. Unless you're relocating miles away, they'll just come back.

I dumped the mice about 100m down the road... clearly not far enough!
I'll have a look at the rentokil co2 traps... I just can't see the mice going in when there is a lovely big bowl of dried food to go at!! Worth a shot though. Little mousy sods.

They (mice) live about 30 cm from cat food bowl; I'm loath to move the bowl as don't want to bring the problem further into the house if that makes sense!

Just found half a mouse in the kitchen. Good effort cat.

Can you not ban the cat from the utility room but leave the food there and put numerous traps round it and catch the mice (while feeding the cat elsewhere. Surely the mice wont stray too far from the food source?). Kill them, then once they've gone, cat and food can go back to normal. (I have no experience in this though. We seem to have enough cats on the street the mice don't stand any kind of chance to start with.
