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.
x2 on the steel wool in all holes leading into the house. My 2 cats were as useless as tits on a bull and I couldn’t catch any mice with traps. I used the poison that dessicates them. That way, they just dry up and didn’t stink. That sorted the problem pdq.
I had the little bastards in my walls and I just knew they were laughing at me. Forget about humane. Like someone else mentioned, they chew wires and insulation and are a fire hazard.
