A new family of mice have moved in to my house.:( The mother has given birth recently because I have seen a lot of the little babies running around. It really freaks me out. In the last three days, we have killed nine mice. I know some will say that this is cruel but I'm sorry, but we just can't stand them. What about you? Do you like mice or do you think they are pests and deserve to die?

I love mice, I think they're adorable. But unfortunatley, they carry diseases and ARE pests. I'd look for a way to drive them out without killing them though. :/

You are too nice. I don't care how they go away, just that they do! If they have to die for that to happen, then so be it.

Dear friend, Unfortunately 'No'. Because I am not a tailor. Thus they are of no use to me. Had I been so, I could pet them and leave in your home at night. Following day morning, you would come to me with a handful of clothes for stitching. How nice could it be!

yes they seem more human than the sticky traps and the other kind are just dangerous with small kids around ... thats if you can get them set without breaking your fingers LOL and the ones from the exterminator comanies are less likely to kill your other pets etc ,but i still like my cats , but learned the hard way NOT to get in its path when they are chasing a midnight snack ......... ~M~

I don't have any pets so that shouldn't be a problem. However my little niece does come around some times so thats an issue.

So, you like cartoon mice but not real mice? That's cool. Who is your favourite cartoon mouse? Mickey Mouse? Minnie Mouse? Pinky or the Brain? Cartoon mice in general? Other?

I don't care to have one near me, but, they are here for a reason. Get yourself an exterminator to fix the problem.
@flex90 (1442)

We did call the exterminator but they all said that all they do is put poison, and we have already done that. I thought with a name like 'extermintors' that they would check the walls for sounds to find their nesting (or whatever you call it) and destry it. Besides, I haven't seen a mouse for 3 days now, so I am hoping they have moved on after the terrible beating their brothers and sisters got. :D

I don't mind seeing mice outside but do not want them in my house. We bought a live trap from Ebay and put some food inside the trap and catch them. Then we relocate them to a field about 5 miles away. We do get them in the shed every once in awhile, so we keep the live traps in there just in case.
@flex90 (1442)

You are too nice, relocating them to a field. I would just let them die.

I use some electric thing to keep mice away. It's just a little thing that I plug in and it makes a sound the human ear does't hear. I haven't seen one mouse im my garage since I plugged it in 5 years ago. Unfortunately I don't remember what it's called.
@flex90 (1442)

Wow, that sounds like something I could really do with. Too bad you couldn't remember the name, if you do, please write it here.

Lol, you sound angry (use of caps lock). We've already got rid of 10 mice in the last three days, haven't seen any today (thank god) hopefully they got the message and are now living in the house next door with the nice old lady :) I;m sure she'd take better care of them, lol.

I do not like mice no. They can carry dysentery and plague, chew thru and stain everything they touch and leave their evidence behind. About 12 yrs ago the Parish decided to develop some natural property. Because of all the trees and ground cover that were cut down, burned or carted away neighbors and myself had a profusion of unwanted creatures. Our solution was to purchase as many glue traps and possible for although our pet and feral cats were being mousers it seem to be overwhelming for them. We didn't use poison so as not to kill any cats just the awful mice. I say kill them all
@flex90 (1442)

I say kill them all too! :) Thanks for that story.
