New born baby mice


How do I get rid of new born baby mice? I have kept a few unused small appliances in our attic. They are still in their boxes with styrofoam. As I was cleaning my attic last week, I checked on the appliances. Then I saw a group of baby mice sitting in the styro. When I remove the appliance, they scampered away. Yuck, so gross! Now, how do I get rid of this tiny rats? I have put fly paper all over the house. I have caught only two.

By fly paper I hope you mean sticky traps. They will eventually do the trick. Proper placement will help. Mice seem to like to walk around the edges of a room (not a mouse expert however). Also look for droppings so you know where they hang out. Put the traps there. If you have pets such as a dog use judgement where you place traps. I don't like to see animals suffer but there are health issues in having living rodent guests and the health issues take priority over humane issues. In the best of all possible worlds I'd trap and release but that's not practical.

Yes, I mean those sticky paper. I caught another one yesterday. And I met the mother! I saw it passing by several time at the trap where I caught her babies. How will I catch the mother?

I don't like cats very much. Are they really good in catching mice?

A small piece of dog food in the center of the trap seems to attract mice.

I already caught 9 baby mice with the sticky fly paper. It was so gross. I bet the mother is hunting me now.

In the old days, some of my buddies used them as catfish bait. They say catfish love the little snacks.

You should eat them. Gods creature should not go to waste.

Please remember that sticky traps are a VERY bad way to die. Check them often and put any mouse caught in the trap out of it's misery quickly.

I'm a hunter and big time meat eater, I have no problem with exterminating like you are doing, but I just don't like needless suffering of any animals (altho House Centipedes are ok, kill them slow).

Add a bit of seasoning salt, bake in oven at 450F for 15 minutes, flip over and bake for another 10 minutes. Serve with BBQ sauce.

I agree with this, go with a quick death method.

I don't have the guts to kill them. I roll them in that sticky paper, wrap in plastic bags and throw them in the garbage. Let the garbage guy get rid of them.

Yeah, that's great, let them suffer for a couple days...


Hopefully when the mice take over they use sticky pads on your children.

Well if your talking about morality and right and wrong, the mice are tresspassing. Human being get shot for that stuff. The mice could take over but they first have to out smart a piece of cardboard with glue on it.
