We recently moved into a very old farmhouse. Before we
moved in we had an exterminating company treat the house for mice. I think they used bait because the house reeks of dead
mouse odor. In the past week we have seen at least 25 mice nin our basement and atic. My wife has told me she is moving out
if I dont stop this mice invasion. Could you recommend a product that we can use that wont cause the rodents to die, and that
will get rid of them in a hurry,,, Please help!!!
SUBJECT: Re: Mice invasion
Hi, Sorry to here about your mouse problems. I recommend using ketch all traps. They can catch up to twenty mice in one
setting and are very humane since they do not kill them. You just have to release them in a different area.
WATER BUCKET TRAP
Just thought I would let
you know about a great mousetrap I found after giving my dogs a bucket of water. I call it the bucket trap. Last spring our
basement was infested with mice. I had put a half full bucket of water (which I use to water the dogs)just below some shelves
I have in my celler. I returned the next day to get the bucket and noticed that there was 7 dead mice floating in the water.
They must have climbed up on the shelves and jumped in to get a drink of water and drowned. Within a week I caught 7 more.
Maybe I should get a patent on this mouse bucket trap. I have tried other home remedies to get rid of rodents in my home but
this one really worked good. Please pass this remedy on to your readers.
Answer: Inhumane person,,, Get
rid of the bucket and get a humane ketch all mouse trap. Its more humane and works just as good, if not better
Infested With Mice
We recently bought a house
that has been vacant for two years. the mice have taken the place over.I see twenty or thirty mice each day. I have small
children and many pets and do not really want poisons around my house. Is there any trap or device that I can set that will
not hurt the mice pets, or children...Thanks
A ketch all trap should work great for you. Be sure and release them 3 or 4 miles from your
Mice No Longer Going in Traps.
We have field mice in our home....we have used the catch and release traps and this winter caught and
released 14 mice (we released them very far from our house - near a horse barn on a nearby farm - where the barn cats can
control them) now we still see signs of them...but the traps aren't working anymore...what do we do now? Edit Text
Answer To Not Able to Catch Anymore Mice.
Moving the traps around to different
locations in your house might help. Also try baiting your mouse traps with a few chunks of dry dog food. Thanks
How To Make A Mousetrap
We followed your directions
on how to make a mousetrap as you show in the diagram above and actually caught quite a few mice the first week. We really
had to get rid of these mice fast because my parents were coming to spend a couple weeks with us and my mother is really scared
of mice. The second week we had problems with the tube falling off the table and onto the floor and the peanut butter would
be eaten. I think these pesky little rodents had figured the trap out. We decided to make some changes in the design of the
trap. Instead of using the pvc tube we replaced it with a small board or slat about 2 inches wide and 18 inches long, with
a dab of peanut butter placed on the end of the board that would hang over the bucket. We used vegetable oil to coat the bucket
because we believed the mice might be attracted to it. We caught around 10 more mice using the board method. Maybe we should
get a patent on it. Thanks for your help.
