Hello - I have a pest problem in my kitchen. In the past, I would have said it was a mouse, but there are no droppings, mouse or otherwise, and no gnawing.But yesterday, a circle of about 1cm was eaten out of a plum, and this morning, about 1-2cms of two bananas has been eaten.Clearly we've got something - anybody got any ideas? Surely we can't have discovered the world's first continent mouse?
No-one got any ideas on my fruit-eating non-mice? Perhaps it's DH
How weird. Perhaps the mouse is constipated and is seeking to ease it's discomfort with fruit.
Funnily enough, the thought had occurred . <deep breath> does anyone have any experience of rats? Do they poo everywhere?
Rats: big poos, much bigger than mouse poo.<shudder>
Well, it's not a child, still no poo, and 'it' ate a bit of banana and a bit of cheese of two traps yesterday and didn't set them off.....I think it must be a fruit bat. Right time of year, and all that...
Maybe it's a vampire bat - Halloween and all that you know?!
rats do bigger poos but less frequently than mice (who seem to poo every centimeter.)Dust the area round the fruit bowl with flour and see what sort of footprints are left.Rat poo is roughly the size of a thumbnail and the width of a cotton bud head.
