Cat perhaps? I can lend you mine for a fee, she's a killer!

I think she means the kind of mouse trap that only traps them and doesnt mutilate/kill them.

These work well, you just put it backed onto something like a wall as mice will mainly stay at the perimeter boundary.

I've used these at the smaller version of the rat trap, these are great the other version was just so powerfull, certainly not humane to me!

We had mice a while back and purchased this electronic transmitter type thing which plugs into the wall and emits some high pitched noise that only the mice can here.

Seemed to do the job as they soon disappeared, though you will probably be forcing the problem onto your neighbours as they will most likely flee to another garage :giggle: :giggle:

I can't remember whether it was effective or not...

From past experience (including having a house next door to a farm which used to get loads of mice), humane mouse traps do not work. Mice are quite clever creatures and soon recognise them as danger.

The sound emtting ones work temporarily but they only irritate the mice. If the mice are in search of food or a nesting place then they will ignore the sound and get used to it.

The best traps are the traditional spring-loaded traps. Although the mice are still suspicious, they're no-where near quick enough to avoid it and are driven by hunger to take the risk. They usually kill the mouse within 10 seconds so it doesn't suffer for long (if at all). I know people get defensive about these things and say they couldn't kill a living creature, but these cute little things are vermin which can carry disease and if you don't get rid of them straight away, they'll multiple and try to nest in the warmest place they can find which is usually your house.

While I'm on the subject...
We also used to have a problem with Rats coming in from the farm. The spring loaded rat traps have teeth across the bar to kill the rat, but sadly rats are more intelligent than mice and soon learn to ignore them.

The theory of putting two of the rats in a barrel and letting them starve to the point where one eats the other and then gets a taste for rat meat is a total myth. You just end up with 1 injured and mental rat and 1 dead one. The only solution to rats is a .117 airgun and a bag full of pellets.

lol it does work, you just have to hope the mouse is just just under the trap as you nudge the boot!

I used to live in an old farmhouse and had a problem with mice, they used to appear right next to where the electronic transmitter was placed! In the end the little nipper traps were the best of anything and bait them with a slice of a 'finger of fudge'. Really easy to put on the spike, and the mice love chocolate. Hope this helps.

Just get/borrow a cat.
Nice and natural :-D

yes you are right they do love a finger of fudge.

we also have a problem with squirrels, they deceide every so often to set up home in our eves or atic, and only way we catch them is a humane trap with fudge gets them every time, but only after they have eaten through our electric cables etc, " love them ".

and foxes love to go to toilet in our garden which is another story, but all i can say is our dog loves rolling in it, and my does it smell. :roll:
