How to catch a mouse in a humane way

Mouse trap

I had a little friend visit my apartment the other week, and for a while there I was ready to make peace with him and co-exist. But after I cleaned up the place and ordered pizza one night, and it crawled up the side of my chair onto the sleeve of my shirt, I knew it was time to bid farewell.

    heheh yeah, and when the mouse falls, it falls into a bucket with citric acid in which it slowly dies

    Mike: No, it’s not dead. I just haven’t had any time left on my hands as I have new job far far away from home.

    Want to help me keep alive?

    Drop me an email at, ’cause I’d also prefer a lot more articles then there are right now.

    The problem now becomes, where do you let the mouse go?

    If you let it go outside, it’s probably smart enough to know where its home is.

    Maybe a few houses down the road?

    Great idea. Reminds me of when I was a kid, I used to sit for HOURS catching mice in our old garage. I’d set up a large grocery paper bag with all the edges on the open side folded over about 1/2 in. on its side to keep it open. Then I’d put a slice of bread in the back of the bag and bread crumbs just outside the bag. Then I’d sit and wait, the mice would come out stare for a while (they have poor eyesight) then creep forward and eat the bread that was outside the bag. They would eventually get bold and go in the bag, once inside I would reach forward, grab the bag and close it up barring their escape. Then I’d dump ’em in a bucket full of water and set it up again. I once caught 16 mice in one day…. Wish I had that kind of time now. I was 10 years old.

    we have a mouse. our cats (all four of them) like this mouse obviously. they kill other mice, but let this one survive. so now, we’ve got a giant mouse. our counter top sits about five feet high and this mouse found his way up on top of it to get a slice of pizza. keep in mind that this was no ordinary slice of pizza. extra cheese, home cooked..this was a heavy piece of pizza. the mouse managed to get the piece down onto the floor after climbing up on top of the counter in the first place. then managed to get the giant slice through the cupboard door and down into the cupboard below our kitchen sink where it sat until morning. I’m assuming the only reason the mouse left the pizza was because it couldn’t fit the piece into his little mouse hole. First off, how can a mouse climb up into a cupboard and second of all, what do we do about it?

    So I found a pretty cool product, I guess it is patented, dealing with catching mice. I have tried it, after having my garage completely over run with mice because of spilled grass seed. I set the trap up, which automatically resets itself after a catch, and caught 7 on the first nite, the ramaining 4 I caught the next day. Best thing is, I didn’t have to reset the trap once, I dumped them the following day and now just leave it the trap set in case of any strays that may find there way in. It was under 20 bucks, and i don’t or won’t have any more issues. I’m going to buy another one for my shed.

    i have mice and am curious as i live in the uk where can i buy this trap that nbtrapp speaks of ?

    Conventional methods of pest control (poisonous baits, ultrasound, physical facilities of repellent) are not always effective. In addition to that, the synthetic poison is only notorious «chemistry», which causes harm to the environment.
