I have more pressing concerns.

A while ago, idly hitting the down arrow, what should scurry up to the back edge of my keyboard, but a mouse. Put its front paws on the top edge, looked straight at me, wiggled its nose as if to say, "Got anything for me?", then scurried back under the desk.

At this moment -- this very moment -- I have a trap set baited with Cheddar.

Keep expecting it to go off and jump upside-down any moment.

What was it that you were saying?

Oklahoma mice prefer bacon

Not too crispy, with a bit of fat...not too much, so they can't pull it off.

Is shredded, sharp Cheddar.

Just enough loose pieces to entice. The main body is jammed in tight.

I have experience in these matters of Southern California mice. Includes primer-driven rubber slugs out the muzzle of a 45.

NA after you place the cheese on the Trap

You have to put a Lighter under it to melt it in. Otherwise the Mice get to steal it from the trap without triggering it.

Maybe your mice are not that cleaver but the ones here used to be till I Edumicated them differently.

Hadn't thought of that. You are right. They are clever about picking it clean if you are not very, very studious about attaching the bait to the trap.

And, more than once, have I found the first one expired and the bait gone ("Let Mikey try it first!")

The 45 gets them every time, though, if you are willing to sit and wait. Oh, the stories about that.

I have to ask...

by wizard57m_cnet Moderator In reply to Ah-so

Did you catch the mouse yet? Or has he proven to be a decendant of Okie mice that migrated to Ca during the Dust Bowl?
OR...perhaps the little bugger is an undercover mouse working for the NSA/RIAA/MPAA/CIA/FBI or the VA! Hmmmm...why else would the mouse check your computer screen? IF you catch him, might want to dissect him and check for RFID implants, cameras etc.!
Gotta go get my foil hat! <{;-)

I have a friend with a 20 Gage and a Telescopic Sight who claims the same thing.

Only thing is I believe that this would work better than a 45.

20 guage might be best if...

dealing with a "mob of mice" that are unruly and won't line up single file straight line!
The cleanup might be worse???
I've used a BB gun, even recently on a "furry tailed rat" as my wife calls them, that had managed to climb inside our chimney.

ps...I should add that shot was performed while laying on my back, looking up through the chimney, with my left hand ( I'm a righty ).
