How I used tender trap.
We have an unwelcome visitor at home and last week it almost frightened the living daylights out of me. There I was, sat at the computer, minding my own business when I caught sight of it out of the corner of my eye.
Now, I'm not into killing little beasties so I insisted the mouse trap be humane. It worked. Next morning, said mouse, having devoured the cheese, was safely tucked inside the trap. He who set the trap marched out to a field some 200 yards away to release it to freedom.
As soon as it hit the ground, the little blighter did a sharp U-turn and scurried back across the road and under our front gate, probably back down to the cellar that it now calls home. It beat him indoors by a country mile. I viewed this with some amusement from the front window.
From that point on, the policy changed and the gloves were off. The deadly metal-spring cheese traps would do the trick. All well and good you might say but this wily little chap consistently nicks the bait without springing the trap. Him indoors says it's just a matter of time. Personally, I think this could run and run and what if "Mighty" has already invited his girlfriends home?
