    The mice are getting bad. The troops on thier side are gaining recruits, the troop on my side is vaugely interested.

    Popped a large trap down on a usual run. Went and built houses in The Sims 2 (I LOVE THIS GAME).

    I come back some four hours later

    Peace was said, but quickly, as one was suffocating.

    Two 12 gauge shells

    870 Jammed after first shot

    Shock load to slide released it and proceeded with follow up shot

    Cremation was deemed neccesary to protect innocent feline bystanders

    Suweeeet!!! I'm going to print it out to hang on the wall in the warehouse at work as a suggestion to the gaggle we have to vacate the premesis.

    :saweet: :saweet: :saweet:

    What is the brand name of those traps?? We only have the wire spring traps that seem to be better at feeding the mice than catching them.

    They're just whatever glue traps were a dollar at the store

    I got the big ones on accident

    I was pissed because I went into the kitchen and saw six scatter

    Anyone wanna guess why that barrel looks like a chinese lantern?

    Its sad, mice are kind of cute, wish they'd leave me alone

    Those glue traps are outstanding. I always keep several around because every so often the little critters get uppity and invade. They work like a charm. I guess I have a mean streak in me because dead or alive, they get tossed into a plastic bag and into the trash. Maybe I'm just hoping they are squeeking loudly to their hiding cohorts to bail from the neighborhood......

    sometimes I feel bad for them, like RJ said they can be cute but when they are eating your food and pooping on your utensils, its war. I only got 6 all together, 4 in 4 hours is great... or horrible.

    Get yourself some barn cats. They'll eat the mice.

    I had one of those evil, rotten, vile, disgusting cockroach vermin crawl up the inside of one of my pants legs once when I was a kid. Freaked me out in a big way! Ever since then if I see one, even dead, I get the shivers and give it a real big wide birth.

    Hate those things.:mad:

    I need to get some of those glue traps. I got a pack of four of the wire traps and they worked great for about a week, I was getting an average of 3 mice a night. Now they dont go near them. Last night when I went in the garage, I saw one scatter across the floor. Guess thhhheeeeeeeyyyyy'rrreeee baaaaaaacccckkkk!!! NOT FOR LONG!!

    Especially since its been raining so much, guess they are looking for cover in the garage. Never in the house, just the garage. Guess they are coming in from the orchards.

    Are those glue traps 'scented' or do you put food on them or? I always used peanut butter, seemed to work good.

    Put the cheese (or peanut butter) in a barrel. Put a broom stick against it and spray a little pam (dosen't smell bad to them) around the top. Instant mouse "tiger trap" Come back a day or two later and let the fun begin. Saves you the traps, shotgun shells and all.
