mouse in the house

well...

this has been going on for a little while, though now he is getting a bit more brazen. according to a lot of people who live downtown in my city, the very mild winter of yesteryear did not do its part in stopping the mouse population's growth as it usually does. as a result, this year's mild winter is even worse and i have a mouse.

although he appears to be cute and likes to stick his nose out just enough for me to notice him, i still want to kill him dead. i can't find his house yet which makes me think he shifts between apartments and so on. i've even set up a variety of traps but he has gotten wise enough to now be STEALING THE POPCORN OFF THE TRAP WITHOUT TRIPPING IT... i took the day off work today to eliminate him once and for all.

any suggestions or tips from those who have had a similar situation? please don't say "move" because i'm not made of money and apparently this is a common affliction among apartment residents in the downtown area here right now. i just want to kick his ass.

Get a cat.
Or just set a mouse trap.

Re: mouse in the house

There are traps that won't harm the rodent, but will keep him confined. Perhaps look into one of those.

You could have animal control remove him and take care of him.

Re: mouse in the house

....or, you can kill him. I like BB gun idea.

I can't believe you took off from work for this, though. Try cheese on the trap instead of popcorn. Or at least strap the popcorn down with something. Popcorn is too light and he can take it off the trap without tripping it. You want to make sure that he has to actuate the lever in order to get the food off.

I like that idea better than my boyfriend's manly way of taking care of it.

Re: mouse in the house

our ability to help you depends on you providing a better description of the mouse. Did he look like this:



or more like this:



the first one is really fast, but you can get him if you poison some cheese. I hear he likes nachos.

If it's the second variety, you might as well quit now. You'll never defeat his zany antics and likely end up being either mauled by a dog or being caught in your own trap.

Re: mouse in the house

I suppose the mouse also has a right to a fair trial as it is innocent until proven a pest. You girls are ridiculous :-)
