I bought a bunch of No-Touch mouse traps last month. I've been catching mice with them too. I just put peanut butter in the bait spot and set them. Well I put one in the pantry because the mice have been getting in there raising cane. So I thought I got them all. I just opened the pantry door and stink hit me in the face! The no touch mouse trap had a dead mouse in it that I didn't check on. I just forgot to check because I haven't gone into the pantry. Do you use the No Touch mouse trap? Have you ever forgotten to check a trap and then found a dead stinky mouse? YuK!!!

we have never had a problem with mice in my house so we've never had to use mousetraps. However, when I was in college, one night late at night in my apartment...a little vistor popped his head up out of my dresser!! I freaked out! I couldn't sleep knowing that thing was in my room. I had actually been hearing something scratching around IN the walls all that fall and then it started up again in the spring. After my run-in with the rodent, the landlord came and put a no-touch trap in the apt, but it never came back...it probably moved on to one of the other apartment's in the complex. I was scared of walking upon the mouse chilling in the trap though...I'm a bit squemish when it comes to those things!

[b]My sister use paper with sticky substance on it to catch a mouse. She is very succesful on her mouse hunting. I think she already caught more or less 20 mouse. The mouse trap is always at sight view. So that we won't forget about it. She buy the mouse trap in the supermarket.[/b]

Thanks Reckon...What does she do with them after they are stuck on the sticky stuff? Does she kill them? Are they still alive? Do you release them?

Hey, at least you know the mouse trap works right? :P Also, to be honest, out of all the foods that are out there, I would have not thought about putting peanut butter on a mouse trap! :D

I've never heard of these no touch mouse traps but they sound pretty neat to me. If I ever have that type of rodent problem I might seek and find some. Have a great day

I'm probably going to have to deal with mouses one day but I haven't really dealt with many of them lately. The kind of creep me out, and I don't know why. I just am always afraid of small things that crawl at high speeds because you can't catch them. Before you know it, that mouse could be up your leg biting you and at that moment you just realize exactly what happened.
