O P E R A T I O N M O U S E H U N T

Help!!!! I'm being invaded by mice [xx(]


This one is a new experience for me and have so far lost the battle but want to win the war.The mousetrap has so far terminated 2 mice but just when I think I have won,another appears.

In my garage one day,a little grey ball of ??? went up against my shoe and at first I thought it was a horsehair ball from one of seats I'm reupholstering.
Nope,it was a baby mouse and couldn't bring myself to
stomping the life out of it(adult yes,river dance style)because it was so,you know,ahem....Cute!Big mistake I'm sure [B)]

Anyways,what is the best way to eliminate the invader?
And yes,I'm being serious with this post!!

UPDATE : they have now learned how to take the peanut butter off the traps without setting them off[:(!]

Laughed my ass off when I seen the trap but now I get the feeling that I'm being taunted[^]

We have an adorable little field mouse that chews his way into our sunroom. He chews a hole, I put steel wool in the hole and patch it, he chews another hole.......and so on. I can't bring myself to exterminate the tenacious, little pecker so he lives on. The restaurant is another story and in my experience if you see one, there are many others involved. Firstly, remove any source of food or water. They're not there to admire your Snap-on tool collection, they're searching for food, water or warmth. Place Havahart traps along the baseboards, mice navigate against the walls and rarely run through the center of a room. Inspect along baseboards for poo and place the traps there. Lastly, get a big, angry Maine Coon cat.
And remember:

Hickory Dickory Dock
Three mice ran up the clock
The clock struck one
And the other two got away with minor cut's and bruises

I can't bring myself to kill mice either. I use small mammal traps as part of my job. These can be used if you don't like killing them, because they catch the animal unharmed in a little box. You then just tipitoe over to a neighbours garden and release them.

Tie a piece of bacon on the bait paddle with a piece of thread. Works for us everytime. We had them squeeze under the garage door seal (saw the bastard do it one time... amazing!). If you caught a mouse AND the bait is missing, then you have another mouse.[;)]

I've had this problem too. I put mouse traps in my shed and my garage. When I put it in my garage I went in to get a drink. Came back out and there was a mouse there. But I use cheese and it works.

It's seasonal around here - light off the heater and it's like turning on the welcome sign.
If they get established, nest and start breeding you've got to go to poison. I worried that this would be bad for the dogs that find them, and I'm sure it's not good for them, but no sick dogs yet.
Block any chew holes with steel wool.
Live traps work, but also draw others - I guess they can call for help in mouse squeak.
Snap traps are useless, or I've got a smarter class of rodent.
There's an electronic tone generator that you plug into an outlet that may help to keep them from establishing, but it won't chase away the ones who've found a home.
Don't stack fire wood up close to the house, and don't store anything like shop rags, or anything they can make nests with out in the open. Unfortunately they love insulation.

TK, your restaurant has mice problems?
Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww! [;)]

The man is for hire. If you have kids, pay him well and be sure to tip him well too. But if you want some peace and quiet, make whatever excuse not to pay him.




Seriously speaking, once I had tenacious mice problem in the kitchen. The traps were not working and I resorted to mouse bait. The squeaking stopped after about five days, but the problem was that they died in their nest probably behind the oven. Another few days and I started smelling something rotting. It was a blistering summer day, but I decided to bake a 5lb meatloaf hoping that the heat from the oven would eventually mummify the rotting corpse.

The kitchen temp hit 100F and the fridge compressor was constantly on. But I did succeed in getting rid of the rotting smell.

I ate the meatloaf during the next few days and took some into the office to share.

The smell of the mouse pee on kitchen floor around the oven however, never left and it remained there until the day I sold the house.[xx(]
