I place traps and poison year ago and then he stopped sneaking around I figured he had died of old age… I could see his sign I knew that he was here and I even saw his shadow come by me a couple times but one day he stop bothering me and I figured that he died… I had mouse place this apartment the best I could. This last spring I got another mouse in my apartment and that infuriated me I could see his Pooh I couldn’t find any of his holes I didn’t know how he got in here but he was in here and I could see him in the shadows or hear him at night and then one day he disappeared. He was getting in here somehow. Last summer I started hearing a mouse in here again and I saw his poo. I thought oh fuck what am I doing wrong I don’t want to have to call management and have them do all this stuff that is ineffective anyway.. How is a mouse getting in here? A month ago was just around the time that the blazing summer heat was cooling down.. I was sitting at my desk looking at my computer and a little fucking black thing whizzed by me I thought oh no how did he get in here where did you come from and he ran over to my open balcony door and went outside!! Oh I thought that’s how those little guys were getting in here they were coming from the balcony! I have this apartment so fucking lethal and full of poisons for different kinds of bugs and mice and rats I dare not fucking walk around near corners or the edges because I have powders and little tiny black traps with a hole in them with different kinds of poison and I dare not disturb that stuff and I have to be careful when I walk in here and this is a 50 year old wooden building and I know that pests are here and are here to stay and until we get modern housing in this country and stop using wood and start using synthetics like concrete and plastic that we will continue harbouring those pests … That said when that mouse ran out the balcony door I have not opened that thing cents I used to use it to ventilate my apartment but now it is closed up. I really hate my apartment being infested and I am sick and tired of this and I am sorely tempted to move out of the city and live in a walled tent in the bush. that is a long and hard and terrifying project I’m getting too old for that sort of heartbreak and disruption.. My neighbour down the hall a deer a little old lady she has a motorized wheelchair she’s a sweet old gal.. I saw her in the early hours like in the a.m. hours she was just leaving her apartment it was really late and she was gathering her stuff and she had cradled a ferret. I smiled and said hi as I went by and she looked down at that ferret and so did I and she smiled woefully at me and she said please don’t tell management please? I said no I won’t say a word I know why she had that ferret in her apartment.
