There's a mouse in my house!About a year ago, we had a nightmarish situation at home. A few rats entered our house (ugh!), possibly due to the roadside drains that had been opened in the locality for cleaning by the local municipal corporation. We did manage to catch them in rat traps.
A couple of weeks ago, it seems yet again we have an unwanted guest (ugh again!). This time, though, so far we've not been successful in capturing it. I put the same biscuits as last time, grapes even, but it has not been successful. Our servant suggested pakodas and we tried that as well, first with onions, and yesterday with potatoes. The food remained in the traps on every occasion, so nothing seems to work.
Any suggestions on how to capture the mouse? Note that we don't want to put poison as it might eat it and die in some dark corner, which would be another nightmare. Also, we would like to be humane, just catch it in the trap and release it outdoors.
