Easy solution for Bud if all of his mice simply ate each other.

We have a mouser in our house year round. Almost never see him even though he/she is at least 5' long now.

sorry about the mice problem. i know how bad it sucks. i used to ride horses with my friend who lived in a farm house. and the mice in the house was just insane. i can picture it right now. he would literally sweep then out the door for them to get out of his way in the kitchen

"You're not missing any small children in your neighborhood, are you?"
NAw, but I have a pic somewhere of the wife with a 7-8 footer that crawled around her neck one day.

My shop is in the city. I went to move some block in the yard and found a nest of Eastern Browns, and maybe some Corn Snakes. 10-12 of them. I grabbed them all and put them in a five gallon bucket.
They were in my driveway waititng to be loaded intot the truck for the trip to the farm and a buddy asked what was in the bucket. I said it was full of snakes. He laughed, said "Right!" and opened it. Took 15 minutes to round them back up, but the look on his face as two shot out the bucket as he opened it was worth it!

Found a Cobra lookalike on the farm one day.

A large snake slid into the boat over my shoulder while I was dozing.

And a pic of the wife petting a moderate sized fellow.

The one in the boat seemed to have an arrow head, so it may have been one of the cottonmouths we have along the James River. He, like other CM's was pretty mellow and I let him go. Copper heads are vicious and can cause serious swelling and nausea when they bite.

Suddenly, I'm thinking extreme cold in the winter may not be such a bad thing, cuz the worst I ever see up here are 12-14'' garters.

The cottonmouths we have here are poisionous.

Ours too. A reptile keeper taugh us a few thing we never knew before.
They, like CH's float like styrofoam and can't swim underwater. The fakers that look like them and swim underwater are actually water sankes and they areagressive, but harmless. He had a large concrete pen with hundreds of snakes. He walks in there barefoot and just shifts his feet through the cluster of snakes feeling for concrete before he steps. He handed me one when i asked what they were. ALL of them were CM's!!
CM's are very mellow and only get cranky when shedding or stepped on. Otherwise, about as harmless as a rope, temperment wise. Unlike CH's, their poison will kill you.

Sssssnakes? No thanks! I'd rather have 72 mice in my garage!

You're right about the extreme cold Creeper. It keeps the bad snakes, bad spiders, red ants and 'gators away. Although, you'll never hear me saying, "Yay! We're getting a blizzard!".

Wow and I thought I had a problem, I had one that got in my attic. Still need to find how, but everything is covered in a few feet of snow, so kinda hard at this point.

You might want to close the garage door. :P

Mice are so cute and fluffy, but there's so many of them, at some point death is the only solution. Way I look at it, we are contributing to controlling it's population so the ones that are smart enough to not come on our property have more food.

And yeah, chipmunks and squirrels will eat meat if they have the craving. I have seen chipmunks eat big bugs on multiple occasions. In fact I think they enjoy em more than nuts!

Bud, these are in your garage right? Not all 85 have been inside the home?
