There's a mouse in my apartment

    I've got this mouse running around my place, and the fucker hadn't really gotten in my way, so I didn't pay it much mind. Being busy and out of the house so often, I didn't really care to do anything. However, that bastard made his way up to my counter and shocked the shit out of me.

    He must go.

    Is there any way to remove the rodent without killing it -- or spending much money?

    You have to kill it.

    Do not get the sticky pads unless you want to hear it's squeaking, dieing gasps in the middle of the night.

    Put peanut butter on the old fashioned trap and crack it's freaking neck. They cannot pick up PB like they do cheese.

    Play this song and maybe the mouse will start to feel irie and dance out of his hole into a net so you can release him into freedom, mon.

    Actually, I discovered a great mouse trap at Lowe's that costs about $5. It's basically a tube that you bait at one end (with peanut butter or whatever). The lid to the other end springs shut when the mouse walks in after the bait. You're supposed to release it a mile or so from your house after catching it, which led to a funny situation when Mrs. PaWriter demanded that I escort a particularly pesky mouse from our kitchen at 3 in the morning (during a very good "Sopranos" re-run on A&E, no less). Annoying, but effective; he never came back.

    And let me echo the overall gross factor of glue traps. I caught a mouse in one in my old apartment (honestly, I don't live in a sqallid, mouse-infested hole) and, when my wife prevailed on my guilt, had to try and release it. I doused the trap in Crisco, and managed to free the mouse -- minus one of its legs. Gives me the willies just thinking about it.

    Does this make me the board expert in mouse extermination?

    Use a glue trap, but unleash him with olive or vegetable oil. He doesn't belong in your house, but he doesn't deserve to have his neck broken, either.

    Plastic explosives shaped like other rodents.
