    So, I guess I have a mouse problem at my store. It's not really that shocking seeing as the building was built in 1869 and it located within blocks from some corn fields. So I bought 5 traps this weekend and put Peanut butter on them.

    When I got in this morning, one of the traps had snapped a little mousie right on the neck!* YES! However, the other traps were licked clean and had been tripped, but there were no dead mice attached to them...not even a little mouse leg or tail.

    So, my question is this - What should I use on the traps that might stick a bit better than PB? I've talked to a couple of people and that's what they suggested...anyone have a better idea?




    *For all the peta people out there: I don't like killing things, (including mice) but for what it's worth, the one mouse I caught this morning DID get all the peanut butter off the trap before it snapped his little neck. So he died happy and full :)
     
  2. Get a CAT
     
  3. I say this phrase ad nauseum around my co-workers, as we have a critter which likes to visit my office after hours....

    (what can you do in a factory?)

    Love them Pixie & Dixie....
     
  4. Use biscuits, oats or cereal. A cat would also do wonders.

  5. Wow, what a weird coincidence...last week I was trying to recall what cartoon had the "I hate meeces to pieces" line in it.


    What 'toon WAS that line from?

    Or, he got nailed before he ate, and his buddies ate the peanut butter from around his little carcass.

    Does anyone remember the .jpg pic with the mouse wearing a crash helmet and going up to a mouse trap? I want that pic. It was cool. A friend had it as his background a while back but couldn't remember where he found it.

  11. Get those mouse traps that are like this sticky paper stuff and put like peanutbutter and food crumbs all over it. They run onto it going "wooohoo!!! food!" and get stuck and die from fighting to escape.

    i had problems with meeces - we borrowed a friends cat for a few weeks - he took care of the problem (even though he got the glue trap stuck to his little ass).

    Be happy you only have mice. The backroom of my local Wal*Mart gets sewer rats every once in a while. Those things are freaking huge. And mean.

    Oh, I second the glue trap with crumbs sprinkled all over it, too.

    Glue traps are awesome....follow that up with a cat with a good killer instinct.

    I worked in a feed mill for a while several years ago. Now THOSE were some darned impressive rats. On average, the rats at the mill were the size of a healthily fed adult housecat. Some were bigger. The biggest I personally saw was probably about 25 lbs and 20" (11-12 kg and 50 cm for our other-than-US TBers)

    I picture rats like that saying "Here kitty kitty."

    Yeah...I have a baboon infestation in my pantry.

    It's better than the gypsies who were in there last year...finally caught the last of those buggers.
