Oh gosh, I'm a bit of a woossy vegetarian so don't think I'd like to kill the mice (though I know that's a bit hypocritical when the cats kill them....). I've used the traps which don't kill them before (when I didn't have cats) but I think you have to take them miles away or they just come back again.
I'll give the chilli a go and see if that makes a difference before I try trapping them.
I'd love to know if the paraffin is ok to use or would it contaminate my peas?
Is it just peas and beans they eat or are they likely to be a problem with other plants too?
