Then I'd need a mongoose to catch him...it would just get ridiculous after that.

Doug,

We have a Ketch-All mouse trap that has done a good job for us. It's a live trap and can catch multiple mice at a time. We had a problem with a few mice a while back and I caught three at one time - eight all together (I think.) That was during the time we were without cats - I don't think mice have a chance in this house now. We've loaned the trap to a neighbor and it's worked for her as well.

One thing to be careful of is that you'll want to walk further than just your backyard to release the mouse as I've heard that the mice can find their way back in. I can't remember how far, but we usually walk about a quarter mile away from the house to let the mice go - and we haven't had any return. (I'm sure we'd have a present on our pillows if the cats had found one.)

Good luck!

Jeanie

(wafting notes of music from many years ago... them bones, them bones, .... the mongoose is connected to the boa constrictor, the boa is connected to the gray mouse, the gray mouse is connected to the plastic cheese... oh, hear the word of the ... music wafts across the time barrier, never to be heard again...)

Well, I consider myself an expert in this field. I have a cat that loves to bring in a few (5-10) live mice a year. On the occasion, one of the little critters gets away. A regular Tom & Jerry house! I'm a night owl and have periodically caught the little critters running around in my laundry room. There is enough dry cat food in there that they take one or two pellets and live under the dryer in the barrel. Of course it took a while for me to discover this! I would never consider killing them .... I don't even kill spiders in my house. I put them in a cup and take them outside. So, I researched and purchased a live mouse trap. It's been very successful - no deaths and 100% effective. Only trouble is... I wonder if I have repeats!
