I'm taking summer classes so that I can graduate on time in spite of changing majors once, but I'm staying at the dorms since they're more secure than apartments and I'm really still too immature to live on my own...
Anyway, I have a mouse infestation in my dorm room. I keep snacks around because I really don't want to go to the cafeteria for snacks... they are sealed up, except I had Dove chocolates with the little foil wrappers (key word being had) and the mice got into them, eating my chocolate. O.o There were little teeth marks. I have been hearing them for the past two weeks.
But the mice have gotten bold.
I was eating a granola bar, one of a twin pack and had the other sitting on my desk. The little teeny tiny mouse climbed up on my desk, while I was sitting there, trying to get to my granola bar.
I of course screamed like a three year old girl, stood on my chair, staring at it in absolute terror as it turned, fled and pooped- yes pooped on my desk. I scared the s#!t out of it quite literally. I cleaned up and threw away the food and stayed freaked out.
They must be starving during the summer or something with less people to mooch off of because they keep trying to mooch my food.
At any rate, long story short, there is currently a mouse inside my printer, hiding from me and in spite of printing a document it did not come out... I had planned on trapping it in a box that way I could move it and put it outside or something but it's still making little mousy noises over there. <.< I make noises ever so often to scare it into staying inside the printer.
I'd really like to be humane about this but I don't want to contract hantavirus or something... If I go to the RA she'll probably get the residence hall to call an exterminator... idk if other girls have complained or not... Maybe it's for the best for them to be exterminated. It feels like a health hazard.
...What do I do? It's probably a terrible terrible infestation because these are itsy bitsy baby mice and there was a larger mommy mouse and they are not afraid of people and it's kind of horrifying. =S Please help? Should I tell my RA? It's probably a health hazard. What if I'm the only one that keeps snacks? Surely not. I'm terrified of mice. What do I do?
