    ok I'm totally freaking out!!!
    Has anyone on here had a mouse and if so how did they get rid of it....

    Did it ever come back or was it gone forever???

    We have one at my place and our first phase of getting rid of it hasn't worked.
    It went RUNNING by me on the couch last night... ON THE COUCH!!!!
    I just about puked :eek:!!!!!!!!!!
    I couldn't sleep last night b/c I was convinced it was going to attack me.
    Originally I wanted to use the "humane" way of getting it so our landlord brought this high pitched sound thing to get rid of it... that didn't work so I gave the go ahead for every other method.
    traps, poison... I want it to die!!!

    fuck :(

    borrow somone's cat for the week.... preferably an outdoor one..... seriously!



    my parents live in an old farm house, and there is always a mouse in there. it used to bug me listening to them in the walls at nite...but you get used to it. we have some mouse traps in the basement...you could try that...but i think they have gotton smart to them, cuz they dont catch anything anymore. however, the chew everything so try some poison or traps...just dont have to be the one that cleans up they traps when there's a little body in it.

    I'm thinking of getting my own cat just to kill this thing.
    The weird thing is we have crazy cat lady downstairs and she has like 10+ cats....

    We are also considering moving... I'm seriously really freaked!!!

    Make sure that besides getting rid of the mouse that you give your house/apartment a thourough going-over for possible points of entry, it might even be wise to have your landlord hire a pro. It's one thing to trap and kill a mouse, but if they have a way in, more will follow.

    If you think there is just one, you may be mistaken. He probably has friends and family.

    Bait the traps with peanut butter.

    Trust me it works like a charm.

    And get him quick, before he breeds and you have 12-20 new buddies saying hello!

    I dealt with a problem similar last winter. Ended up killing 16 mice in 1 week.

    thank you alex.
    b/c 1 wasn't terrifying me enough.

    OMG 16 Eclectic????!!!!!
    Have you had any since or are they gone now?
    I couldn't handle 16 - that would be grounds to move for sure!!

    It's only a freaking mouse, not like it's a huge rat...

    One time my old roommate came into my room in the middle of the night looking for a tennis raquet, cuz he caught a live mouse. We went outside and played mouse tennis with a live mouse at 3am.

    Cheeka can I come over to play mouse tennis?

    Use bait but don't get the kind that has Warfarin in it. Get the Bromodilone (or something like that). TO mice are immune to Warfarin.

    Don't get that "mouse treat" stuff, or electronic mice repellers - they don't work.

    I wrote an editorial about my mice a few years ago: it is full of helpful tips on mice hunting. I will try to dig it up.

    Alex if you can find that editorial that would be wicked.

    exactemally. the roaches in mississippi were the worst, i remember waking up to the sound of the pitter-pattering feet of a roach in my bedroom. another time i remember bathing one in ant/roach killer spray to no avail, it just kept on chugging along - eventually it keeled over but no one wanted to pick it up to throw it out. so it just layed there for a few days on its back.

    yummy apartment critters.

    We have to get rid of this mouse jus' so Cheeka will let me go to sleep, being woken up by screams of terror can't be good for me..

    Seriously we've been aware of this mouse for the past two weeks and for right now I'm pretty sure there's only one. It's this small, grey, super quick little bundle of germs and disease. I thought I had it last night, I was drowsing in my room when Cheeka starts screaming that there's a mouse in the couch. So I go upstairs with a t-shirt to wrap it up in, pull all the cushions of the one couch and the little bastard goes flying across the room and settles under the other couch. "Now I've got him" I exclaim, caught up in the adrenaline and excitement of the moment, so I yank the other couch from against the wall and this little bugger speeds across the room in a blur (I swear he yelled "undalay, undalay" and that may have been a sombrero on his furry little noggin') and settles by a heating grate. "There's no way out this time fo' you," :mad: I bellow but in the 2 seconds it takes to get over to the grate this crazy super mouse how somehow managed to squeeze through the very, very slim openings of the grate. Bastard, he will haunt me till the day I die!!

    I was talking to our landlord while these events were occuring and he said he'd bring over rat poison today, just everyone start praying that I find the dead mouse before Cheeka does or you'll never hear the end of it!! (You know I love you baby :D )

    i once caught a mouse in a small garbage bin. man those fuckers can jump! he jumped out, but thankfully i was quick enough to move the bin to where he jumped and i caught him midair. so me, being humane, decided not to kill him, bt just toss him outside. so i get into my backyard, and give a huge heave, tossing the little bugger a good 10 metres. 2 seconds later i see him scurrying back, he runs between my legs, and in through a tiny crack in the wall!

    another time i found a mouse, and i happened ot have a bicycle pump in my hand. now dicksherwood69 may think he was fast, but i WAS fast. i managed to squish the little bugger underneath the pump. the harder i pushed, the more i could see his eyes bulging out of his head. i felt terrible, but this little fucker was running around my house for a month, so it had to be done. i gave him a nice navy funeral - i flushed him down the toilet.

    moral of the story: do not be nice, kill your mice.
