I had an apartment that had them. The complex gave us those sticky traps you can buy, and if you have any love of animals, I do NOT recommend them – they’re supposed to be super effective, but they’re a horrible way for the mouse to die. We used one without really realizing how they worked, and it didn’t take much for us to realize how bad they were, and we tossed them.

We ended up moving a few months later and just kept the kitchen SUPER clean until then. I never found a humane way to deal with the mice. :/

Boyfriend or Best Friend had them at his old place.  We would use live traps and set them free out in the woods in the middle of nowhere.

I would always feel bad for the mice and give them pumpkin seeds and water, which of course made them smelly in their little jail.

One day there was a mouse in the kitchen, and one of BF’s housemates comes to me and is like “zomg there is a mouse, do you know where a mouse trap is?”, because I *totally* lived there… >.>   Anyway.  

I built a trap with a wastebasket and paper towel tube, and it worked awesomely.

When we moved to our house, we were looking outside the first night and there was a mouse on the outdoor wall.  I went and bought some live traps, since the local Wal-mart sold the ones we liked, but haven’t had to use them.  Now that we have cats, I doubt that any living critter is going to make it far in the house.

We have them at the school where I teach and our custodian uses peanut butter with the traps. I know its not humane and all, but we want them out! They can’t just steal the peanut butter and so it works better then the cheese.

You can get these pest repeller things that you plug in and they emit some type of high frequency sound that bothers the mice so they stay away. the key to getting this to work right is to figure out their entry point into your home and then place the repeller directly facing that place

O. M. G. You guys, I read this thread 10 minutes ago before brushing my teeth, getting ready for bed, etc. I decided to do a bit of tidying up before hitting the sack and I picked up my sweater off the floor… and THERE WAS A DEAD MOUSE UNDER MY SWEATER

I had turned off my computer already but I rebooted just so I could write to you guys….

Aaahhhhh so freaked out!

Now my cat is sniffing the area where the mouse was, and he’s all,  hey where did my toy go?
