Stuff that works - d-Con snap traps (mouse trap) - better than Tom Cats.
Are They a BETTER Mouse Trap? I dunno, but they are EFFECTIVE.
Got Mice? We do from time to time.
Hey - we live in the country and them dang mices find it preferable to live in our house with water, food bits and warmth provided - than to fend for they own selves in the out of doors. The other morning I was sipping my morning java and watched a 10 pound mouse haul his fat butt across the counter in broad daylight.
"Arrgggh -I had all I can stands and I caint stands no more", said I.
I should mention that our cat Bill - (see above) - officially gave up mousing about 4 years ago. Ahh, how fondly I remember the day I brought him home and he nailed a mouse under the sink within about 15 minutes. That was before he discovered cable TV, toilet flushing, and getting his lounge on. He did make a brief come back about 6 months ago and laid one out for us in the living room - strutting all around puffed with pride. I gave him seven bucks and his own Personal Pan Pizza - I figured he was back in the groove. HA! Like a flash he resumed his life of snooooozing whilst the rodents prospered.
I dug out my trusty stash of d-Con Snap Traps. These are my preferred traps. They are the modern day version of the tried and tru mouse trap used by the Founders of Our Country n the Daughters of the American Revolution. Oh, there are BETTER mousetraps out there....supposedly. How about the sticky glue ones? Geez, how freakin' cruel is that - the little buggers get stuck and slowly starve to death. My understanding of the boxes of poison is that the dose expands in the mouse and strangles it. Yeah, I want the mice out of our house and the only way I have found is to kill them, but we don't have to torture them, do we?
