I have a mouse in the garage, 'tis the season eh? Anyway I saw an ad on tv for an enclosed mouse trap the other day so I went hunting for them this AM. Home Cheapo didn't have 'em, walmart didn't have 'em, finally true value did. At 3.75 each they're about 4 times the cost of the old snap traps, but they're easier to set and uh, the girlfriend hates mice... yeah, it's all her fault :b

Damn cats are too lazy so I bought one but haven't set it yet. Got it at Wallyworld here in Canada for $2.99CAD.

I bought a couple of these and they worked well. They may cost a little more but you can re-use with ease. Sure you could re-use a traditional trap but no thanks. I still think the glue traps are more effective.

We had a mouse problem at my old house (hot summer and leaving the back door open) and the WORST is when the trap only catches part of them and they're still alive and kicking! Oh man, dropping the phone book on them was not cool! Give me those new traps any day!
And you believe, at heart, everyone's a killer...

It may be time to discontinue your catch & release program.

My cat likes to make a game out of it. I almost feel sorry for the little buggers. Usually he'll let them run away and then catch but one time one got away and the cat just set up camp right outside the vent waiting for the guy to come out.

Up to 6, I don't know where the hell they're coming from! I don't care for the glue traps, you just end up with a live and very pissed off mouse stuck to a bit of paper, plus you KNOW my dogs would get into them, what a mess.

Well one of my uninvited house guests has figured out how to let himself out of the live traps. I saw him in there jumping around and the next thing I knew the trap was empty... I'm not done with you yet you little bugger! Better let me catch you soon so you can find yourself another home before its way below zero outside and you turn into a mousecicle@!

Live traps are cool. At my old work we used to Live Trap the meadow voles which were girdling the trees we were planting. We'd relocate them. After a while, we went back to killing them...lol...I know that sounds bad, but really, what we did was back to nature. We set up raptor posts so the Hawks could hunt the meadow voles. Let the ecosystem take care of it. Hmmm...I guess you can't stick a raptor post or hawk in your garage...lol..better get a live trap Posted Image

Yeah, it would be a bit difficult to get my local golden eagle to guard the garbage under the kitchen sink. At least I finally bagged Houdini. Now for all his friends....
