I've gotten pretty good at it, I have to admit. We did the humane trap thing when we first moved up here.....I actually took the time to drive them down the fucking road on my way to work and let them off in a field....like there would be some fucking mouse family with mustaches awaiting them with open arms, and they would live out their lives rolling in the hay, never to see a human again....until the thresher was fired up.
I have learned 2 things about mice in my 12 years on the mountain: 1. If you release a mouse into a foreign atmosphere, it will likely get killed by other mice due to territorial instincts, and 2. Who gives a fuck.
I have tried many mousetraps in my stay, and dealt with many home invasions. It seems to be cyclical...you get small ants one year, big carpenter ones the next, then fucking mice. Wait...flies......they are about every 3 years.
So, back to my point...the stupid boxes and shit you put out......waste of time. The good 'ol spring trap, a la Tom and Jerry, works best...but not all mousetraps are the same.
Side by side....Victor has a great logo, by the way:
1st review...old school trap....same design, spring loaded guillotine...takes a lot to trip it. We have had several of them have the peanut butter eaten off without effect.
2nd Review...the update. This yellow plastic may look like an unecessary addition, but the large platform along with the slickness added(for easy trigger) due to the plastic makes this a clear winner. Plus, it's cut like Swiss cheese....so the mouse will say to him or herself.."Fuck, look at the size of that slice of swiss!" :
As it turns out, God? He was a squirrel. A big 'ol meaty one. "I found god, he used to say"
