Hi lovely mums and das,
sorry to bother you about this issue. But I think I need to start this toppic now, which seem to be a tabu. Are we the only household which has a problem with ...well, they are not mice, they are actually rats!
No, we aren't messy persons, we clean our house regulary, we have no dog or cat... We are just a normal family with two young children in a nice house between the commons. I'm so upset about this...
It started before Easter, my husband spotted one in our kitchen. I did not believe him till I saw it by myself- a really big mouse... too big for a mouse actually! We had a pest control company here and they brought bates. We had a really bad smell in the house for around three weeks.
But now again, they are here. Another company new bates and again this disgusting smell. Two weeks later I spotted one under the kitchenfloor. You can see under the wooden floor when you walk upstairs from the cellar. Third company will come today. By the way Wandsworth council did never an effort to ring back...
I now know: There seem to be a problem with rats around the Northcote road area. One company told me. They need regular water supply so they seem to get in and out regulary. And finally it is nearly impossible to block all the wholes in these old houses.
Please, please tell me we are not the only familiy suffering under this issue!
