I live in an older home on the edge of a big timber and we are good for at least one mouse per year in the house.

After discovering sign of one...I decided to try a new trap last night....a glue board that folds into a little box and contains a chemical that will put the mouse to sleepy time.

Well, I woke up this morning and one of the two traps was missing. My first thought was that I was successful and the wife disposed of the trap before heading out for her Black Friday shopping at 3am.

That thought lasted for about a second because there was no way she would even be in the same room with a mouse. So, the search was on. I looked all over for the second trap and when I found it....it was empty....sorta

I had managed to catch one.....and he spent the rest of the night chewing his way to freedom. He chewed away an entire corner of the trap and all that remains is a bunch of hair stuck in the glue.

So....now I have a pissed off mouse running around having a bad hair day

I guess there wasn't enough of the "sleepy time" chemical in the glue. I bet that mouse looks pretty funky!

Your lucky,I placed a similar trap under the sink,and the little feller managed to drag the trap close to the hot water line.Needless to say he chewed a hole in that gray plastic line they used to install in mobile homes,and since I drive semi-truck with no at the house at the time,the leak went undiscovered for a week.Came home to 2inches of water standing all over the house!!
Oh,yeah did I mention that the hot water was enough to soften the glue on the mouse trap,$4000.00 worth of damage and no @#$* mouse.

OMG!!! LMAO!! I'm sorry, but that is too funny. I'm laughing with you, not at you!!! Did you send the mouse a bill?
