  • Mice like to run along baseboards. At night he will really come out looking for a snack. Get a humane mousetrap and bait it with peanut butter. He'll likely run in for the treat and hubby can take him for a long ride to the country in the morning. :-)

  • Yikes, I dont know what I would do if I saw one in the house. I have heard that they do run along the baseboards too. If you have any pets make sure to keep the pet food up because that could be this little guys snack at night. My hubby is actually pulling apart our front loader dryer because we think one got in from the vent that goes outside and died. SO our laundry room smells wonder ful =(

  • You have several options. You can get a cat. You can go to a hardware store and get either a live trap (bait with peanut butter and chocolate chips) or mouse poison. The poison dehydrates the mouse and it leaves to find water and die; if youhave little ones, you can get a childproof holder. You can get sticky paper, but someone will have to kill and dispose of the mouse; same with a snap trap.

  • Use a humane trap to catch him, then put him outside. Easy enough, and no reason to be cruel by poisoning him.
