    You can buy these sticky mats from bunnings in the pest control section. They are designed more for insects but if the mouse is small it might still get stuck to it?
    I think there may have actually been a something for mice in the same brand? If you want to check them out, one of them is called 'the buzz insect control'- they are poison free traps.

    Gold, London!! Gold!!!



    We use the poison blocks, but we had quite the problem, one got stuck in the bedroom and did this

    That goes 6ft up the wall too!

    If you use baits, get them from bunnings, not the supermarket and just make sure there is NO water in your house. When they drink, they die.

    We had the blocks around the house while the kids and I were away, but when we came back we threw the blocks into the manhole in the roof.

    There were 22 little blocks (2 packs) and every single one had been nibbled. I shudder to think how many critters we had. That's what 180 degrees of devopment, less than 500m from your door gets you...

    I've only ever used the catch and release traps. The glue traps are horrific IMO Either trap and release or just quickly kill it, no need to make the poor things suffer. Jmo.
