Oh ho ho! I have a mouse problem. I've tried traps, glue trays, and all other methods. The mouse isn't that smart, it's just lucky that it escapes my attempts to bring it to it's end. It's been around so long I even named it "cloud". Can someone recommend the best way to rid myself of this mouse named Cloud? Do those electronic ones work? Cloud really is a pest and I need him gone.

Dear Queen,
Some vermin are indeed smart. They can learn to avoid traps. Try moving the location of the traps on a daily basis. Keep them close to the walls. Look for entry locations, remember a mouse can squeeze under holes that would require you or I to lose weight. The best bait I've found for mice is hard salami in a snap trap. They seem not able to resist it.
Good Luck and a Happy and miceless NewYear,

You can always go with the poison baits they eat and then die. There are plenty of those on the market. Just be sure to put them where children or pets can't get to them.

My mother had a mouse, we named him Charlie. He lived for 3 or 4 years. I went on vacation and left my 3 cats with her. No more mouse.

When I moved into my house, let the cats downstairs about once per week. First couple of weeks, two dead mice. Still let them down once in awhile, not a mouse to be found.
