Geez, I left the house for one week and when I came back I found it'd been invaded by an army of mice. They're 2 cute 2 kill, so I'm looking 4 a website that sells humane mousetraps + ships international (I can't buy them in the brutal Central Europe): if u know of such a website or would b kind enough 2 send me such a mousetrap (4 $, of course) or know of a very very (that's v-e-r-y) simple way 2 catch or evict mice, please, let me know.

Check out PETA's website at and click on the "Peta Mall" tab along the top. They have a good humane mousetrap for about $10.

Any idea how to spell the word "to"? It's a tough one, I realize.

This site has two simple, easy-to-make, mousetraps using household materials. I have only tried one of the two, the bottle one, but it is simple to make and works.

Been there, tried that. My wife didn't want to kill the mice in our barn, so she bought a live trap and we caught quite a few. Then I found out she was releasing them only a hundred yards or so from the barn. Turns out white-footed mice will return to their home grounds from a lot further away than that.

Make your own humane mousetrap very easily.
Flat tray on the floor with upside down oven roasting tin. Suport the roasting tin or glass cassarole dish on an upright thin stick with a right angle bend in it. Place bait on horizontal end of right angle stick. When the stick is disturbed the dish falls down trapping the mouse. Check out the URL link. Good luck, squeek squeek.

An old homemade mouse catcher might work. Take a tall plastic container (large bucket, trashcan, etc). Build a ramp they can walk up to the edge. Now suspend a circle of something that's almost as big around as the top of the container(a disk cut out of light metal or plastic), hang it from a piece of string attached to the center of the disk. Put something that smells good (like peanut butter) a few inches in from the edge of the disk. If you build it right they will walk out onto the disk which will tip them into container. Normally the container has a few inches of soapy water or oil in it to drown the victims but they should be caught in it if the container is big enough so they can't jump or climb out.

Our idea is similar to TomH's except we use a bottle instead of bottle on it's side on a support so the neck hangs over the bucket of water,lean a ramp against support.Smear the bottle neck with grease and put a piece of chocolate in the opening,trail a rag from bottle to support.If you dont want to hurt them hang life belts around the inside of the bucket.

Try putting out the following for 'em to munch on. A small amount on a piece of paper put away in a semi-hidden place works here. Please let us know how it works in Europe. IHank

Mix the following thoroughly by kneading in a zip lock bag.
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp baking soda
