I Hates Meeces to Pieces

Stupid little mouse, running through my peripheral vision. That's the first and last time you make that mistake.

A quick trip to Menards and I'm ready for you and your varmint friends. I got sticky-traps, snap-traps, and poison. I'm going to kill all you little fvckers one way or another!

We'll see if those sticky-traps are worth their salt, I've never tried them. One thing I know I didn't want is to put a snap-trap on the stovetop, so I put a sticky-trap up there to see if my hunch is correct, that they're getting up there. I'm actually looking forward to waking up early tomorrow to check out the traps. I'm hoping to see some carnage!

Snap-traps are going inside some of the base cabinets and other out of the way areas. At least out of the way enough to make it look like an accident when the cat finds one... (my wife doesn't read this, I'm safe)

The poison is going in the garage, and I'll probably put some stick-traps around the car as well. It won't see any road time once the weather gets bad enough and I don't want those furry little bastards chewing through the top or in some other way wrecking the car.

Updates as warranted... I think a body-count is in order.

I tried those sticky-traps and they work well, although it's my understanding that the mice die a slow, terrible death of starvation. Something tells me that won't bother you....

Oh boy, now you've done it. You're going to get PETA in an uproar. They'll be picketing your home and calling you names. I actually heard an interview once on NPR where someone from PETA was blasting those traps. Just tell them that the mice won't suffer for long since you check the traps often and kill them right away.

I'd be curious how well that goes over.

Jane: It's not at the top of my list of things I want to do, but until they start paying rent, they're on my hit-list.

I'll smack the little bastards with a hammer. Nice and quick for the PETA crowd. It's not like I'm putting their heads on tiny little pikes as a warning to other mice in the spirit of Vlad the Impailer..
