The Magic of a Glue Trap
WARNING. Animals were harmed in the creation of this posting. The other morning, I went into my kitchen to find some juice. Instead, I found a mouse running around on my kitchen sink and clean dishes on my drying rack. It was not a good start to the day. I have grown accustom to critters in the house, but when they poop in my sink - action must be taken. That afternoon I stopped by ACE Hardware and got some glue traps. A relatively simple invention. A pan of glue (with peanut butter chips) which traps and kills the mouse. I am not sure how it kills the mouse, but with the image of mouse poo in my sink still in my head, I really didn't care at that point. I put down a trap and went for a run. Thirty minutes later - voila, one mouse down. No mess, no fuss, quick and clean, at least for me, I assume the mouse isn't a fan of the glue trap.
