Andy, I do admire your diligence in attempting to catch that mouse alive, but it's really not to be recommended having them using your house as a latrine for over a week, particularly if you've got young kids. The spring loaded traps are humane in that they are lethally effective - the mouse literally won't know what hit it.
It's a wonder you haven't told him to use a punt gun.....

Always wanted a punt gun.

I'd like to strap it to the roof rails on the Shogun and deal with people who cruise down the middle lane of an otherwise empty motorway.

Andy, I once used a humane trap for a little mouse and released it 'out in the wild' i.e. a quiet laneway behind the house. Unfortunately as I released the little captive, a lady turned the corner walking her two (unleashed) greyhounds...

The rest is like Pete 7's saga of the electrocuted hamster I'm afraid.

Killed a mouse early this year with the argos catalogue, just hung over the end of the sofa until the bugger came out and dropped the extra argos catalogue on top of it - clean kill too!

Beats watching tv too!

ps - the back cover does wipe clean....

Who was it said that the Welsh pray on their knees and prey on their neighbours?

No news on the Mouse front yet. I did however speak to one of my friends today. He gave me horror stories of Mice that he's still having troubles with 1 year on.

He traps them in spring loaded traps and suggested I do the same quickly before it all gets out of hand.

You need one of these: available from any good pet shop.

Cought one just last night, that our cat brought in yesterday. she seems to bring them in, and let them go, often without harming them (not always)

This humane trap works every time. we seem to get one every couple of weeks. in the summer, she manages to catch, and bring in little bats! now they're a whole different matter when it comes to catching them!

Jonny, I've two of these traps and they have worked in the past. Not so far this time though. I seem to have Ghost or Super Mice.
