I fucking HATE HATE HATE vermin and my condo that I just sold had quite a few of them. I am scared of them which makes it worse. Then I also saw them in my parents new house.
Here’s what worked best: spring loaded traps with PB. An extreminator put poison packs and one of them was chewed thru and the moust then died somewhere in the over stinking up the kitchen for a week or 2. Spring traps are #1 though. In my parents’ house I caught all 3 in one night, then had my neighbor pick up the traps and throw them out.
You have to comb through your house inch by inch. Fill all holes with the following: a little oatmeal, mix in some posion. Stuff holes with as much steel wool as possible. Then spray in any tiny remaining holes with spray insulation. They can’t chew through steel and the insulation is to block out light.
Glue traps and electronic devices don’t so shit.
For those of you worried about humane treatment, are you fucking kidding me? You ever hear of the BLACK PLAGUE?
BTW, a cat is the best solution if you want one. A Chinese grocery store I know has an army of them in their basement: big, filthy, nasty cats. They do the trick thoug.
Guys, at approx. 1 AM a mouse wondered into my bedroom near my computer desk. The (apparent) mouse had a lightly colored under-belly with dark brown fur elsewhere. My room was well lit, and the mouse was facing me as it entered my room. We made eye contact. I waved my arms. The mouse left.
Too tired to give pursuit. Recommended course of subsequent action?
