It seems Mr. Ringo is an educated man. Now I REALLY hate him......



I'd recommend good old Victor mouse traps baited with creamy peanut butter. Works like a charm for me.

We have a lovely mouse couple living at our house. We did send out invitations, and they were gracious enough to come and complete our ecological system. Once I was watching TV, eating some popcorn, and I looked down, and there she was, munch, munch, munch .. on a piece I had dropped, right by my chair. Cute little thing. She looked up like, "what .. like it's not YOUR house".
(They'll go outside as soon as it warms up. prolly.)

Skip baiting the traps with cheese and use peanut butter. Takes longer to lick the peanut butter off the trap and you are more likely to catch the little critters. They can grab a piece of cheese and run with it.

We don't have cats any more and word got out to the vermin population and they moved in...poison may kill them but then you may end up with dead, stinky mouse carcasses in your walls, not pleasant.

RE: Damn mouse won't die
Use sticky traps. They are nasty things, and you'll have to do most of the killing yourself, but they are your best option.

Be sure to fasten the sticky trap down. A good method is to use a pack of Velcro tabs. They are cheap, and keep stuck mice from dragging a trap behind appliances or flipping them over, causing a huge mess.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Here is a man with a story of how he went to war with mice. I hope this helps.

He even constructed his own prisoner of War Camp:

He even got wounded in battle

And he committed War Crimes....

RE: Damn mouse won't die
Nice pictures...i wonder if I can order those online. My husband set some victor traps last night with peanut butter on them. I am hoping these wi work today. I am so sick of hearing those bastards wake me up, jumoing around as if they were in a ball pit in my stuff. And shitting all over everything.

I agree 100%. Like you said, stick traps are nasty...but they work really well.

I had a rat that would wake me up every Censored night. Tried everything, no success. Then one night I lost it, grabbed my .22 rifle and shot up the kitchen. Missed. Wife not too understanding. Hasn't happened since. I now use sticky traps.
