critter under floor!

Driving me crazy for last week. I have opened two doors in skirting,noluck. Have put portable radio under home with loud music, no luck. Sounds like it is just below flooring and between some type of sheeting. Running entire length of home. HELP! Doug

Welcome to the forum Doug

Sounds like you might have a mouse in the floor cavity sealed in with the plastic under the joists. Unfortunately he won't leave on his own. Poison is probabily your best bet. Although I have not used it they sell a rat poison that hardens the critter when it dies so they won't decay. I have had decaying mice in the walls before and it will make you want to leave home!! If there are no holes in the plastic covering the bottom of your home look at where plumbing enters and see if that would be a good place to set poison or a trap. Wish you luck evicting your unwanted guest
