    love the hash marks on the back, that is just wrong in a good way. . .

    Lets see 8 + 1 = 9 and you are an ace at 5 so that is one great trap, one more to ace 2x

    = )

  3. Marko says:

    Yeah, that’s the same trap for all kills, too. Whoever says you can’t reuse them because of the “stench of death” forgot to tell the mice in this house.

  4. Kristopher says:

    “The stench of death” just means “free food” to these little freaks.

  5. LisaK says:

    Eeeewwwww…. I hate the twitchy little buggers! Good job.

  6. Tiffani says:

    When I bag my first squirrel (aka fluffly-tailed tree rat) I’ll be sure to share!

    Oh, and go you!

  7. ZerCool says:

    What’s the bait of choice in the Munchkin house? In my parts, it’s peanut butter. Preferably crunchy, but creamy works OK too.

  8. Marko says:

    That trap scored eight kills without bait, just the fake cheese paddle. I place it in a spot they have to pass, at the end of the dark tunnel behind the microwave. Call it Land Mine Mode.

  9. emdfl says:

    Our mouse/rat trap has four legs and expects the staff to have his food ready when he comes in from the hunt.

  10. Marko says:

    The $FELINE module would conflict severely with the four $CANINE_(DACHSHUND) modules already installed in our household.

  11. Jason says:

    Get a husky. That should take care of the weinerdog infestation.

  12. Marko says:

    A husky is a blue-eyed spitz in a fuzzy sweater. Our dachsies would make short work of it.

  13. Jay G. says:

    A mousetrap???

    How positively barbaric. I’m appalled, Marko. I mean, deeply, thoroughly shaken to my core at your choice here.




    Obviously you should be using .22 birdshot…

  14. Marko says:

    The mousetrap is live and ready to kill at 2am. I’m not. 😉

  15. Lawyer says:

    I love the hashmarks!

  16. Lissa says:

    And unlike me, you did not need to get a tetanus shot afterward. I have much to learn . . .

  17. Robert says:

    If it’s a recurring problem, best look around the floors for their access hole and stuff some aluminum foil into it. In my house they were entering through the hole where the hose to the dishwasher is connected under the kitchen sink; after stuffing the area around the hose with aluminum foil, no more mice.

  18. Vaarok says:

    You should have a mousing race with Abby over at Baddogsandsuch.

    “The mousetrap is live and ready to kill at 2am. I’m not.”

    If woken up unnecessarily, you would have been…

  20. “The mousetrap is live and ready to kill at 2am. I’m not.”

    I’ve got you beat by four. Nailed number 12 today since around Thanksgiving, on the same very old trap that has years of mice on it and more to come. My actual count for this winter is two voles, two brown field mice and eight greys. These are all in the Barn (summer car storage), house is mouse free.
    And Tiffany, “There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much fun as simply shooting squirrels out of trees.” I lost count at around 70, and they keep coming.

  22. farmist says:

    Mmmm, squirrel TASTY!

  23. OrangeNeckInNY says:

    Little mousy goes “squeak squeak SNAP!!”

    You could hire me to keep watch at night while you and your family are sleeping. Just don’t ask what the mystery meat in the breakfast omelet is. Heh.

  24. John says:

    That’s excellent. And your wiener dogs are real dogs with short legs. I think most folk think of toy daschunds….

    Thanks for this post, I am interested in.

  26. Thank you for the opportunity you gave. Good luck ………..
