The sequel...

We were away from the house for 4 days. 

When we got home last night, we saw that the mouse had really enjoyed the leftovers in the birdfeeder which we left in the kitchen.  Little pile of shells in the corner.  Not too thrilled to have the mouse in the upstairs like that... we'll probably have to trap him.

So, we go to bed, very tired from the travelling.  We have two feather blankets on the bed.  As I climb in next to the hubby who's already in bed, the top blanket shifts a bit, and low and behold there is a large pile of BIRDSEED between the blankets!!  

No droppings, so we just shake the blanket out on the lawn and put the blankets back on the bed, and get our tired selves back toward sleepland.  Where my dreams include catching the cute little mouse with our hands. 
 
I have a similar story.  We visit the lake house every 2-4 weeks.  I had a big bag of sunflower seed in a closet that I was going to transfer to empty cat litter containers (mouse proof).  However, in an emergency (we had to leave quickly), I forgot.  3 weeks later, we discover the mice have been partying.  Several piles of shells on 2 beds (out of 3), in the corner of the couch behind a pillow, in some folded fabric on top of books in the bookshelf....you get the idea.  They had partied all over the house.  As I was cleaning out the closet/bird seed storage area, I moved some clothes and *sprinkle*...more shells IN pockets, between clothes.  I think I'm tossing all those clothes now.  They were "lake clothes" anyway, ill-fitting, stained, fugly....

Damn rodents.

if we leave any dog food in the bowl at the country estate, we find it EVERYWHERE: sheets, boots, couch, you name it. Little bastidges get around.

Again, try http://www.doyourownpestcontrol.com/mice.htm and check out the live traps.

Good luck!

If you want to be that humane, then let the mouse keep the house, and find another for yourself.

My cousin (one of my crazier cousins) used to work for a weapons-storage facility here on the west coast.

He had terrible mouse and rat problems.

So one day he stole a nerve-gas grenade from deep-storage (where they don't do daily inventories) and set the grenade off inside his house and took his family on vacation for two weeks.

When he got back, he put on his hazmat suit, aired out the house, shoveled up the dead carcasses (he said "dozens") and went back to work... whistling.

I've never had the courage to try that...

His kids (fortunately) are safe from him now as their mother divorced his ass and moved to Hawaii with the kids.

This site has info on every imaginable pest. Except maybe Mother-in-Laws...

They recommend live traps, including a wind-up trap that can catch multiple mice at one setting.

The sticky-pad traps are particularly inhumane.

Check out the methods and materials for keeping the little bastidges from getting in: you'll always have problems until you eliminate their access points.

A mowser is still the best.
For one, they will get the mice & their smell will discourage the mice's connections from setting up residence where his buds just got nicked.

I used to have those cute little field mice come into my house. The cats were just useless - the mice would come out from behind the fridge and eat the cat food, and the cat would sit and watch them - so I bought humane traps and took the mice outside and released them into the wild. Well, that didn't work!

So, I had to resort to the poison, and it broke my heart. I got paid back when one of them died beneath the boards under the sink, and stuck to high heaven until we pried off the boards to get it out.
