Birds vs. Mice

house mouse

We have two delightful boy birds, cockatiels named Sparky and Guapo. They are messy eaters, scattering seeds around their cage despite a guard skirt to catch such escapes. Where there is seed, there are mice. I have a running fight against small rodents coming in to eat bird seed.  Mice are fast, hard to catch, and happy to gnaw on most things.  I once found a new yellow cellulose sponge under the sink, with one whole corner eaten off. I sweep and vacuum and clean up seeds daily and all food is sealed away carefully. Even after setting traps, I still find mouse dirt. So frustrating.
