  • If you set traps, use peanut butter instead of cheese. Mice can't resist peanut butter, and it's harder for them to get than cheese, which makes it more likely they are caught in the trap. I'd be getting a hotel room bout now!

  • I would use a fly swatter to stun it then scoop it up into a bag or box and release it outside. Be sure to place your cat food up high so that it doesn't attract more pests. Clean like the dickens and look for any holes or gaps in walls and doors you may need to close up.

  • I catch them by dropping an empty cool whip container over them and scooping them up, then I toss them outside. One time I thought I saw one run across the floor and went to look- hoping it wasn't just a very large spider- and behind the dresser sat this cute mouse looking at me as I looked at her. By the time I got the container to catch her, she'd gone.
