Pets and Animals - Rodents - Mice - Aren't They Cute? (In Someone Else's House)

Yep. It's Still There

It ran along the wall and it now is trapped. I'm sure it's sitting there wondering what the heck it is supposed to do now. I have been watching a mouse scurrying around going into the closet next to me upon occasion in the past week.

I have a trap set with peanut butter and now, it is placed in the mouses path. The only way the mouse can get around it, is to jump or go through the trap. Tempting as it may be, the peanut butter may be the end of this mouse.

No. I am Not Calm

Are you kidding me? I am far from calm, but the best way to get rid of a rodent, is to be very quiet.

Well, screaming does help you to deal with the mouse, but - in general, is not very helpful. Every few minutes as I type, I lean over to see if he's advancing.

My assumption is that I will not be able to complete a typed sentence if it decides to run for it. Bear with me.

Musing About Other Methods

Let's see. I have a shop vac, but I don't think it will quite reach, plus, the suction may not be effective against something that can defend itself. PLUS, I have to open the vacuum to dig the injured mouse out of the vacuum, so the vacuum may be out for now.

There's a broom, but again, the space between the wall board and the cabinet is limited. I'd probably end up injuring myself.

The mouse would probably die laughing. Plan C.
