How to Catch a mouse


“The humane way to get rid of mice is to put peppermint oil (not extract) on cotton balls and place them where you have seen the mice. They can’t stand the scent and will pack up and leave. Bonus – your house smells like Christmas.”

Comments via Reddit: “Awesome woman! I’ve had to witness a tiny mouse stuck to a glue tray and it was horrible for him and made a lasting impression on me. (I ended up having to finish the job…not my idea of fun.) Make sure she seals any holes they may use to get in the house.” Another: “I have a brother that moved out west a long time ago. I don’t really hear from him often but he is a big hunter/fisherman/mountain man and actually surprised me when he spoke about a mouse he found on a glue trap when he was a kid. He heard it screaming and wanted to help it. He tried to pull it off with pliers but accidentally pulled all the skin off of the mouse and he could see all the organs pumping and everything. He smashed it’s head immediately to kill it. It was strange to me to see how much it tore him up to recall the memory. It stuck with him. I never would have cared before but I’ll never use one of those things to catch a mouse.”

“This is an even better version because you never have to reset it.”
