    Argh, we have a mouse in our garage/washing room(its damn cute though) and i need to know what is the best way to flush it out? The washing area leads to the back door which i have kept open and i have put some cheese outside so i'm waiting to see what happens.

    Someone once told me mice like chocolate :D ..is that true? If so i shall go put some out too.

    Anyone got any more suggestions?

    Last time my mum had mice in her house ... it ended up getting into one of the cupboards where the medicine was stored ... the bloody thing had been munching away on paracetamol tablets lol.

    Roffle :D

    Nah, we don't really want to kill the thing so setting a trap is the last resort probably. Think a Malteser will do?

    You can now get traps that are mouse friendly. It does kill them it just catches them and then you bring them out side and release them in your neighbors garden :)

    Chocolate would do a better job than Cheese :)
    Jam will also work well. Mice have a sweet tooth

    Mice generally don't like cheese, it's too strong for them.

    My mum and sister hate mice, so they managed to get it out of the cupboard onto the floor ... then for some reason my grandad (who had been called in as backup) started beating it with a fly swatter, general consensus was it had a heart attack.

    Did the drugs give it a heart attack or was it the beating :p

    I've got a mouse-friendly trap that works perfectly. It recommends to bait it with peanut butter, which although seems weird, works really quickly.

    Theres no need to kill this little mouse!

    Peanut butter will work a treat as well, i had a mouse in my house and was told to spread some peanut butter near the mouse trap. So off i went and did then left the trap, next day i had a look and found the little bugger dead as a doornail with some of the peanut butter eaten:p.

    EDIT : This is the trap i have, yes it costly but so far its dispatched 4 mice in the past 5 months:p
