How do you get rid of mice?

I had a mouse just walk thru my living room! I live in the middle of the country so I'm not real surprised that there are mice, I am however surprised that it just ran across my floor with everyone up. I have a cat but he is pretty much useless. I tried to catch it in a glass so that I could throw it back outside but it was too fast.

  • go get the decon traps they work and if you get the ones that are not open to where kids can get into them they are safe

  • I just used the old glue traps. Nasty, but effective.

  • Give that kitty time he will catch it!! I live in the country too!! I have several cats outside just for that! I have yet to see a mouse in my house.. My suggestion is get you a couple of cats outside, and they will catch them b4 they come into your house.. lol good luck.. :)

  • A cats the best. But we don't have one.. you have to figure out how they are getting in and seal up the corners..
