I've only caught a handful of mice in my career. They're the toughest because they stay under cover. My humans' mousetraps are more effective than I am. Those puny varmits keep moving into our old, very rural house. My old man taunts me every time a trap catches one, saying mean things like: "We oughta replace you with a cat!", or, "I'm going down to the desert to catch a bull snake. One snake in the crawl space would be worth ten Mona's!"
I'm getting desperate- any good mousing strategies/ pointers out there?
Tell your "he-man" to go sit in the trees with the squirrels if he's going to tease you like that. I don't hear about him catching mice on his own. He has to use traps! And if all else fails, bite him on the leg when he teases. My family always tease me that they're gonna trade me in on a dog who likes to be petted. Real nice. huh? (Good thing we know they're only kidding).
Mice are the hardest to catch. They're quick, and can squeeze in the littlest holes!
