We finally got rid of our house mouse! After trying poison and plugging holes, we finally resorted to engine cleaner spray to drive him out, and then we dropped a Webster's Dictionary from a height of about 4 ft. Worked the first time!! We have a picture on file, but it would probably be rated R for extreme violence.

Putting toolman and grma jo's ideas together found mechanizim hard on the baseboards.
Moving opperation to basement the big bang woke us up with every mouse caught.
And, worse yet after gun goes off and smoke clears all the cat finds is the wading.

We lost our older cat. The younger one picked up where she left off. Carnage. Come cold weather all we find is tails and bits of the butt.

Guessing, he probably averaged 4/week for the first cold month and 1 or a half per week for the rest of the winter.

Cuts down on the cat food.

Cat is usually a pretty good bet. Traps bated with peanut butter are deadly. Mice are fools for peanut butter. RayP(MI)

was taugh this years ago & truely works..
take a piece of jute string or yarn & tie a double knot around the place you usually put the peanut butter... cut the ends really close to the knot.. then dab the peanut butter on just the tips of the string.. the mouse has to pull on the tips of the string to eat the p.b. & BANG !! got um but good ...
