Mice! Mice! Mice!

By L.K.

I found field mice in my garage a few months ago. I love having animals in my yard but I don't want them in my garage. So I did some research on traps and looked at all the different types of traps available. Most of them were cruel and/or messy. However, I did manage to find a very good humane trap. And I have caught several of them in my garage since using it. It has a little plastic window at the top so that I know when the trap has caught one. It is very easy to use. As soon as I find that it has caught one or sometimes more than one, I take the trap to the nearby forest and I release them back into the forest. This way, I'm allowing another living creature to experience life a little longer. It's also helping to provide food for some of the other animals in the forest. It is a much better option than killing it by smashing it, starving it, or using poison around the house. Those little creatures do not really deserve that. Catching and releasing is more humane.

When you catch one, you will find that the mice are very scared. They look like they are expecting to die. Just take the trap to a wild area, put the trap on the ground, open it, and step back. They may be too scared to move so you may also need to turn the trap on its side to encourage them to leave.

To clean it after they have left, just spray it with a high pressure hose and let the sun rays dry it.

They can be purchased for around $17 for one. One will probably last a lifetime. They can be purchased at Gaiam. You can find out more information by clicking on the link below.
