Still on a mission...

Mouse When I went out to check my trap this morning, I saw the mouse scamper away. I'm sure he had a full stomach because once again the cheese was gone and the trap was not sprung. I took my trap to my mom's to let her show me how to do it right. I will try again. The D-Con is disappearing. Mom told me that D-Con is warfarin, which is what her Coumadin (blood thinner) is made from. It makes the mouse bleed to death inside, but it may take several days. Now I'm starting to feel bad about tempting the mouse with bait. I didn't know it would kill him like that!

they bleed to death and go off searching for any type of water to drink. it's a slow death too - i had to use it at our rental house, and the damn thing came inside and i had to watch it's mobility diminish. picked it up and just threw him in the trash b/c i couldn't stand to watch. ick.

EEEEWWWWW! I keep searching my house for any place that I think a mouse might be able to get in. Haven't found any yet except some gaps around where a hose from the AC goes into the brick. I bought some of that foam that sprays out of a can and filled it up because it already had ants going in it. Damn these critters. They are everywhere!
