Someone I know has mice. Since Gary and I were able to survive The Great Mouse Infestation of '87, we feel we can give advice. Got mice? Consider your options, one of which is glue traps.
1. Glue traps. Why?
- The mice really suffer, and after your husband sweetly buys Humane Mouse Traps for the darlings, and they bite him as they are released into the field, and then run directly back into the house, you will want them to suffer.
- I mean, they really SUFFER. If you get two stuck on one trap (as we did when we acquired thirty-one mice while we futzed around with Humane Mouse Traps) they will mercifully kill each other by chewing each others heads off.
2. Glue traps. Why not?
- You wake up every day to the screaming of the mice, Clarice. Out of compassion, you have to euthanize the mousies.
- The mousies cling to life. You can elect to throw them away and let them starve (cruel!) or to drown them (very effective) or to hit them on their heads with a hammer.
- DON'T HIT THE MOUSIES ON THE HEAD WITH A HAMMER. Because you will miss, and then on the upswing you will have a mouse coming at your face, stuck to a glue trap, stuck to a hammer. Then you will have to throw the hammer away. And, you will have to flash back that image every time you use a hammer.
See me? See how I give and give and give?
