Thread Name: BS: Non-violent anti-mouse techniques?
Subject: RE: BS: Non-violent anti-mouse techniques?
Refreshing this thread to see if anyone has any new ideas. I noticed a few signs of mouse infestation about three months ago when the weather got cold, and hoped it wouldn't get too bad and that maybe when the weather warmed up they'd leave (wishful thinking, I know). It has gotten worse, and yesterday I found they'd gotten into a cabinet where some food was kept, chewed open a few packages of noodles and shredded some napkins and paper bags like they were making a nest. I used poison years ago and it was effective, but I hate to do that, both because of the agonizing death and the fact that they die in walls and smell. Right now I think I'll get some snap traps in the hope that they'll die quickly, unless anybody has discovered anything better that is humane and effective. Anybody have useful information to add on the subject of getting rid of mice?
