THIS Morning fans were horrified today when a woman opened up about the “plague” of mice swarming through Australia.
Farmer Anne Cullen explained how the rodents run through her hair and scuttle across her living room floor.
It comes as the country is overwhelmed with mice thanks to a bumper crop that sparked an explosion in breeding.
She explained she returned home one day to find her bed full of mice, saying she couldn’t sleep in the car because there were mice there too.
Anne told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: “That night I did have mice running through my hair.
“You’re sitting watching television and you see them running across the floor.
“I’ve managed to put some steel wool under doors and in spots where I think they’re coming in but you really can’t stop them. You’re trapping all the time.”
Asked about the stench, she replied: “The smell is absolutely putrid. The funny thing is you get used to it – you have no choice. It’s absolutely revolting.
“I was going out every morning and collecting a bucket of dead mice and throwing them away. But then there are so many under the house.
“The stench over at my hay shed was really quite revolving but you just have to get used to it.”

Asked why the plague of mice had happened, she explained: “We had this bumper harvest, we had good rain so there was plenty of pasture.
“It created the perfect habitat to breed – and they breed so quickly. They start breeding at six weeks of age. Every six weeks they have up to ten pups. They just breed so quickly.”
Phillip explained that the Aussie government had considered using the chemical equivalent of napalm to get rid of the problem.
Anne spent more than 40,000 Australian dollars – roughly £22,000 – in a bid to tackle the problem.
