    A shotgun is effective. Just be aware that the loft timbers and ceiling plasterboard may need repairs afterwards.

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    In Malawi kids stand by the road to sell "Malawi Sausages" to passing truckers. They hold up a batch of five "sausages" on twigs like Satay chicken treats. The difference: in Malawi the sausages are grilled field mice! Yummy!

    For those interested, check out the music of the Malawi Mouse Boys. Charming, but a bit too Christian for me!

    Dave, just wondering how they get in the loft. Can they climb up the outside of the house? Do you own a cat? Our cat regularly leaves dead mice outside the back door but I have never seen a live mouse inside. I wonder if they could possibly sense a cat and stay away.

    And very effective it was. Just don't get your fingers anywhere near the plates as it gives you a very nasty shock
    yes i have used one of them too with good effect . incredible to think so many in the loft dave . and some very useful suggestions . a good number of folks i know like in terraced houses near here and the main complaint is mice . many folks get a cat of course but not much good in the loft
