    I come home from work turn on the light to my room and see a little brown ball dart across the floor. I jump back and see it dart twice more. From under my bed to under my recliner to the other side of my TV cabinet. I grab my keys and go buy a few glue box traps. Come home and make them and toss them out around the room. Grab a towel some clothes and went downstairs. Got my shower with the most piss poor water pressure and got dressed. Sleeping downstairs tonight. Parents are on vacation. F'in mouse..

    You need to get some cheese and a very big hammer. If that doesn't work, see if your parents have a gun. Don't worry if you miss the first time. You'll get 'em eventually.

    All joking aside, get rat poison.

    Mice. Adorable, horrible little things. You see 'em in pet stores behind the glass they're so cute. When they're in your house they become a pooping, rummaging menace. Amazing what a piece of glass does.

    One time I had a mouse in my basement that could only walk in circles...My mom's friend named him "Special ed" (It was meant as a joke, and not to be offensive to anyone with any mental/physical handicaps)

    well It is dead.. or one is dead. Not sure if there are more.

    A few nights ago I set up glue trap boxes around the room and nothing. I went in friday night and looked around. Nothing.. I took a bamboo backscratcher and banged on the card table leg i keep my laptop on.. then notice a brown blur skid around my doorway to my bathroom I check in the little corner it should be in and it is gone. Must be a hole it got into.. So I set some traps along the doorway.

    The next day I notice two have been knocked about so I think it avoided them. Well Last night I baited a "humane" trap. I check it when I get home from work.. empty. Well I bait some glue traps with cheese and start setting them up in the doorway to the bathroom.. then notice a third on wedged at a 45 degree angle where the hole might be. I knock the box down and shine a light in.. He is dead!! Put on gloves and drop the box in a bag and toss it out. Leaving the traps out for a few days to make sure no more mice. But at least one little bastard is dead...

    You think mice are bad,try having bats in your house.When I was a kid we would wake up in the middle of the night to see bats circling in our bedroom.So one of us would have to crawl downstairs to our parents room so that they could get the tennis rackets to whack 'em.

    If you see one too you'd think that.

    What I think happened was after i set the traps in the doorway it later came out and ran into the first trap and got its front stuck. It panicked and leaped back and knocked the other traps aside and tried to make it back to it's hole in the wall but when it jumped it jammed itself further into the trap and died..
