    Basically we've had a recurring mouse problem in our house, but the landlord has sent people out to put down traps, poison or peppermint soaked cotton balls to no avail. They have been coming into all of our rooms, living room and kitchen, and after coming home from the Christmas holidays I found a dead one in my room, which we all agreed was a rat, not a mouse! Just wasn't sure what the next step was apart from environmental health but my housemates are afraid we'll get evicted?!

    move out? I would.

    I had a friend who built "The great wall of bed" around his bed so the mouse at least wouldn't go on his bed while he was asleep. But a rat is serious business!
