Mice don’t scare me. Actually, there’s not much that does. Well, maybe spiders, but I’m working on that. Anyway, I had a tenant that moved in and 10 a.m. and moved out at 2 p.m. because she’d seen a mouse . . . now that’s some serious fear.
I’ve been close friends with Carrie and her husband for over 25 years. She helps me paint at my rentals when she has the time. Check out her rolling technique in the video below — she’s excellent. But that’s not why I’m posting it here. It’s more of a “mouse commentary.” She’s scared to death of mice, as evident in the story I tell on camera:
Her “mouse-o-phobia” (I made that up) is so severe she won’t even look at a dead one. After an eviction, I found a deceased mouse with what appeared to be a Christmas ornament is his mouth. (Say what??) Perhaps he expired while decorating the tree? I have a somewhat warped sense of humor — I apologize in advance to those of you who may not find the following video amusing — and I couldn’t even get Carrie to come look at him. Without further ado, here’s the clip:
Anyway, although I don’t fear the critters, they aren’t welcome in my homes. A product called Final Blox gets rid of them. I buy it locally at Gold Seal Pest Control (317-924-4114), but it can also be purchased on line.
Bottom line? Whatever your critter fear, there’s probably a product that will take care of it, or a sub-contractor or friend who will take over while you cower in the corner. 🙂
Onward and upward!
