Win an Orkin Cozy Fleece Winter Blanket 11/18 #MouseInAHouse

Orkin's Mouse in a House

Fall has arrived, and cooler weather has come with it. Whether or not you know it, your warm house is an open invitation to unwanted guests looking for a cozy winter vacation: rodents. Each fall, rodents migrate from their outdoor “summer home” to the warmth, food and shelter of their “winter timeshare” – your house!

Being human has its perks, like having a cozy house to enjoy during the winter, but imagine having to survive as a mouse? Try your luck by playing “Mouse in a House” – a choose-your-own-adventure game that puts you in the shoes of a rodent looking to survive the upcoming harsh winter season.

Using the app, put in your name, then try your best to stay alive and see how long you last. Comment below with your results and add it to the Rafflecopter - it's a giveaway entry.

We've been lucky that we haven['t had mice in our house (although our detached garage is another story and they drive my dogs nuts). However, years ago when I went to visit a friend in Alabama over Christmas, we ended up staying at her parents' house for a couple of days and then went to the apartment she had for college. It was an old building and was more of a duplex since it was just single story. However, she had problems with mice and they had taken advantage of the few days she was away and we were finding droppings, nests, and even mice every time we opened a door or drawer. I was afraid to keep my suitcase in the house!

My rodent family lasted the whole winter in the game. Luckily we don't get mice in our house (five dogs and three cats may have something to do with that), but we get them in our garage.

You may make a great mouse, but remember:
you’re a human. If you see a mouse in YOUR house,
call The Orkin Man right away.

I finally made it, but it took a few chances.

I made it, my rodent family lasted the whole winter.

I guess I'm really lucky because I don't have a rodent holiday story.

You had to eat your own tail, and even that didn’t last long.

I just lost a cat a few months ago. He was the hunter of 3 cats. This cat would bring in rats, birds, moles and much more. I would have to clean up body parts off the rug. I am not sure if he found them in the house or not. We left our home once and left the cat door open for the cats. When we got back the house was trashed. There was racoons everywhere!!! I could go on but I will stop now. We have squirrels too!!

I had a hard time making it for sure.

I made it through winter.
