Today, I placed sticky mouse traps in my bedroom. it's now 12:05 a.m. and I've successfully caught a mouse. Too bad I'm scared of them and my husband is passed out asleep. I now get to listen to a mouse squeak all night and have to be up in 4 hours. FML.

So you're just going to let the mouse suffer all night?

Uhh... if you're REALLY a mouse lover as your name and choice of trap suggests, you might think about waking your husband up or facing your fears. Mice don't react all that well to stress, especially not hour long fear for their life. You might wake up to a dead mouse because its heart has given out.

I'd like to be able to say that I would be brace and take care of it if I were in your shoes but if I'm being honest I'd probably take the wimpy way out and go sleep on the couch or something

Can't you just wake your husband up?

The irony here is catwoman cares more about the mouse's welfare thn mouse_lover does.

I think her name is sarcastic since she put .. and since she said in her post she's scared of them. But I agree with you.

Well that's depressing. Nice are adorable now I'm sad

The mouse was dead the moment it stepped on the trap, pretty sure there's no way to remove them.

sticky traps are just pieces of sticky paper you put on the ground. once an animal touches it, its fur gets all stuck in it and its such a strong glue it can rip skin off if the animal struggles.

You can get animals unstuck by using a vegetable oil or even sand. As long as you keep the oil away from their mouth they should survive

The humane society calls glue boards one of the cruelest ways to trap an animal. They're not meant to be rescued from them, only discarded. I'm pretty sure the "mouse lover" user name is meant to be ironic.

YDI for choosing the cruellest form of mouse trap then not even having the balls to deal with the results... Either catch and release or instant kill traps are less cruel than a trap that lets the poor mouse chew it's own paws off only to get immediately re-stuck.

Show it anyway

People here aren't saying don't kill... they are saying that when there are other options easily available that would give the same result but with significantly less pain, then they are better. In a situation of roaches and labs, the goal is to kill or learn. If there are many ways to fulfil those goals and get the exact results you need, but you purposefully pick the most painful and torturous one, then I would still find that extra cruel. I'm not gonna blast on OP, because judging from her username she simply didn't know how slow and painful it can be for the mice. But I still hope she chooses a different trap next time.

I didn't say don't kill it, I said get a trap that will instantly kill it rather than torturing it... Though my preferred method is catch and release and fortunately I live in a country where cockroaches are very scarce.

@14 You're missing the point. If you have to kill something, you should kill it as quickly and cleanly as possible.

Why? It's more fun to be physically and mentally cruel when you kill mice/rats. Torture is fun when you catch the vermin that doesn't let you sleep at night with its constant squeaks.

Wow... Just... Wow.

39 - that's pretty fucked up.

39, I'd like to torture you, and listen to you scream, all the while I have a mouse sitting in a clear box with a nice piece of food while it gets to watch you suffer. I think that's quite fun, and appropriate for someone like you.

14, humans spread more disease than mice do. I don't approve of killing any animal. So I would say it's "evil" to kill cockroaches purely because you're a pussy who's minorly inconvenienced by their presence. I also disapprove of using mice (and all animals) as lab "rats". Especially when they're deliberately made ill to find cures or are tortured with harmful effects from make-up. If they're going to use animals, they should use the ones that are already ill and try and cure them instead of making more animals ill and taking their lives from them.

Good lord, I think you need some very serious therapy.

We easily found catch and release traps because I didn't want to kill them. They are reusable, so actually quite nice. Even if you use kill traps, please go for the most humane.

You seriously used a sticky trap? that's the most inhumane thing on the planet and you've cause a lot of distress on that poor creature. Next time you want to be humane, go for mint oil.

Spin traps work best imo. Kills the pest, but does it in an instant. (easy disposal aswell)

Mint oil keeps them away from the place at all times. They hate the scent it bothers their sense of smell

live traps, catch and release its more humane and they will just fall asleep in the trap

I'm sure a lot of hate is happening here, but seriously, sticky traps are the most cruel, evil, and inhumane things you could use. Don't ever use those again. My family used them once and we saw how horrible they were, a mouse actually ripped his head open trying to get off of it and we threw them out and never used them again.

Wow that's really sad!

Glue traps are a horrible way for a mouse to die. YDI.
