Got Mice: Easy Solution Without the "Ewww"

5 Minutes

This is an easy way to avoid the "ewww" when setting mouse traps.
You need a paper bag (with or without handles), scissors, mouse trap and snack. Cut "doors" on opposite sides of the sides of bag cutting at edge of "floor" of bag
Place bag along baseboard trim or garage wall. Or, where ever you suspect mice have stayed a little too long for a staycation.
Simply lift bag and discard. Mouse contained in bag.
This is a tricky topic as some readers will want a more humane solution to mice. However, after trying sticky traps, we decided the 'vintage" mouse trap (and a bag) was a quick, solution with easy discard.

    Are you saying you just throw away the bag, mouse, AND trap without looking inside? Seems like a waste of a good trap. You know they are reuseable, right?
