I have tried various things in the past and have gradually refined my technique down to a two-pronged system:Keep a pile of poison-bait somewhere where 1) your kids can not find it, 2) mice can find it, 3) it is easy for you to check, 4) it will keep dry. This is your "canary in a coal mine". When the bait gets eaten by a mouse, you will know they are back. Refill the bait and set a trap near the bait. Use peanut-butter as the trap bait. Setting the trap is very tricky and takes a lot of practice to get right. Initially you will be giving them a free meal because they are very adept at taking the bait and not springing the trap. Even when you do not catch them in the trap, they will still eat the poison. I've found that 3 to 4 meals is usually enough. You do not see the corpse but they stop coming back because they are dead somewhere.I started with a live-capture trap. These work at least as well as the killer traps but you have to release the mouse somewhere and I soon got bored with that. My method deals with the 1 or 2 mice that come into my house every year. If you already have a bigger problem than this, you may have to have a bigger solution. Look on Youtube and you will find some bulk-capture traps that seem really effective but you may have to build yourself.
Graph theory 27 cube cheese and mouse problem [duplicate]
Hint: you can color your cheese cubes with two colors such that no two adjacent cubes have the same color. Knowing the color of the first cube, what is the color of the last cube the mouse will eat ? And what is the color of the central cube ?
My mouse pointer won't move???
I gave up on my wireless mouse ages ago they are useless after a time. Gone back to the old fashion one and it works great. Must find out how to navigate without the mouse sounds interesting.
mouse won't work on dell computer?
If it's a cordless mouse, it may need batteries. Mine takes 2 AA batteries. If it's an older mouse on a new system, it may need a driver, as other readers suggested. Wiping the pads on the bottom of the mouse with alcohol may do the trick as well.
My Wireless dell mouse doesnt work.?
If you changes the batteries than you need to link the mouse and the receiver together by hitting the connect button on both. It requires pushing the connect button on the mouse or holding it for about three seconds. Good luck
HELP! Cat is playing with live mouse?
I had one cat the louder I would scream about the mouse the faster he would go to get it. So maybe you should try to show him you want it out NOW
Tabs Flicker when Mouse Over Top Edge
When hovering, the tab shifts down one pixel, causing it to move out from under the mouse. This returns it to its normal state, which causes the tab to go back up, causing the hover to reoccur, ad infinitum.Tweaking the CSS seems to give the same effect without shifting the box, which prevents the flickering. More specifically, the line-height and margin-top should be removed from #tabs a:hover, and #tabs a should be modified as follows:This addresses the issue in Chrome 17, Firefox 9, Opera 11.6, and IE 9 (as well as IE 9's IE 8 mode) without altering how the tabs are currently presented. It's possible that this causes some other conflict I am unaware of that explains why this is the way it is, but I can not see anything obvious.
i keep buying new mouse, and they keep breaking!!?

I'm stuck with a pet mouse....?
well sooner or later you mom will find out about the mouse. That's just how mom's are. Mice are good at eating anything - vegetables, fruit, crackers, poptarts, anything. Try to stick to things healthy to people, as it will be healthy to mice too. As far as bedding goes - you are going to want to get some pet store bedding. There's really no other good way to do it. Sawdust and wood shavings are good - but you need something absorbent and disposable for obvious reasons. Tissues and paper towel are good for them making nests, but to wander around on and do their business i would look for something that does not have chemicals, and can be spread out easily. (newspaper would probably not be good, they use a lot of inks in there)
