noooooo...  Glue traps.  those are evil.  Especially when you toss them in a fire or leave them in the hot sun when you're done with them.

Or worse was the one time I had a live trap.  The mice would run through an opening and it would scoop them into a chamber where they happily existed until I released them into my neighbor's truck (but that's another story).  There was one day when I wound it up too tight and the first poor mouse to come through got splattered on the back wall.  Then there was the time I forgot about the trap for a few weeks.  I wondered what that awful smell was.  It was the few remaining mice, going all 'donner' on the dead ones, eating them up... 

I threw the trap away at that point as it almost made me puke, and it was, just plain evil...

and you have way too much fun killing mice man.
and penutbutter works great on mouse traps

when I was a kid, we would hunt bats with tennis racquets...

Take a nylon and fill it with sand, cut some small holes in it and hang it from a tree around dusk.  As the sand trickles out, the bats think it's bugs, so they come flying.  PONG, ya whack 'em.

Take these cats. They are handsome and full grown (no kitten hijinx). Mouse problem solved, happy kids, and no more chewed up valuables.

Don't let Jeff get' em.  He'll bludgen them to death with a tennis racquet and then send the fur off to make sweaters. 

Poor kitties.  Makes me sad.  :wah:

I'm in a full-fledged war with mice right now...  I was wondering why there weren't any in my garage... well, DUH, because they're all in my kitchen...

So I managed to kill one in a sink full of water.  Pretty morbid & gross.
then last night, I emptied out a drawer and put a trap in it and one on the counter.
2:00am, I'm up on a conference call (ugh) and I hear SNAP!  Oh yeah baby, game on...

Well I worked at Orkin for 2 yrs. Loved dealing with mice.

BTW Mice can swim just for future reference.

Best way to stop it, is find out how they are getting in and seal the hole they are using. Mice can squeeze through holes small as 1/4" if they HAD to, but much like people, they'll take the easy route. Get a blacklight, turn off all lights and then look for anything that sticks out. Mice pretty much piss all the time and leave trails of urine. Anytime handling a mouce, wear gloves if possible or use pliers. Mice can carry Hentavirus which can be fatal. Personally I liked using the Tin Kats with a glueboard inside it. The glue board made it easy to clean out (dead mice can weld themselves to the metal bottomes after a month or so). I've opened them up with live mice in them, seen them going Jeffery Dahmer on eachother, once opened one up and a female mouse had her pups while stuck in the glue. Not a pretty site to see, but that was my job. If the place I was working on didnt have pets or young children, I;d just use poison baits.


As for bats, those are one of the few animals I will run screaming from. Glad they werent part of Orkins service. I had a list of places I could suggest to people that asked about certain nuisance pest. SNakes I would handle myself even though its not part of Orkins service. I carried a collapsable tong and a hook in the truck. When we had a company inspection from HQ the guy inspecting the truck for proper equipment and correct storing (ie chemicals in teh toolboxes in teh beds. not supposed to keep any in the cabs) asked what those were. Kinda shocked him when I told him I removed snakes from a few customers homes. The other techs were pussies. Brought one back to the office after dropping the truck off (was gonna release it at an area that was better suited for the snake than the customers home) and had it wrapped around my arm. Very pretty fox snake. (have been bitten by one also) Damn the one tech screamed like a little girl when he seen it.

The frame was snapped, the #3 rod was dangling from a hole in the cases, and what was left had been consumed by fire.  I said, "Hey, we've got all night!"

Just checking. 

That little laughing man at the end seemed innocent enough but it could have been the "muahaha" evil laughter brought on by the thought of bat eggs incubating inside the walls of your home.

Ya never know for sure.
