    Angry Humane way of killing rats/mice?

    Well the other garage reeks of piss, and smells like "rodents". My dad killed one of them so far...and I found another one of the little bastards. Anyone know of a HUMANE way of killing the little fuckers?

    I asked that question once when my house had mice running about. The guy said 'Sure there is' and I said 'Yay' and he said 'You round them up, sit them down, and politely ask them to leave'.

    So in other words, I guess that meant 'No'.

    I have a "No Kill" trap. You have to take them elsewhere to dump them (like to the house of a neighbor you dislike).

    The one I have is called the "Smart Mousetrap". They have it at Amazon.com.

    I guess the trap & release would be the best way. You're so wonderful for thinking about a painless death for the filthy little mice! <3 <3

    Call Tom Cruise, who will contact Xenu with his sooper seekrit decoder ring, who will descend upon the garage with his sooper shiney spaceship and transport them all back to Planet Vermitania.

    The thought of trapping & relocating mice & rats is just crazy IMO. They are a real problem that shouldn't be dumped on anybody else. And if you don't get them all, they'll get their numbers back up in no time.

    Rats and mice are rodents that can carry many diseases. It's not like they are endangered species. Just trap them and throw them in the trash.

    Get a ratzapper. I swear by it. It'll cost you about 40 bucks but it's worth it, IMO. It seems the most humane to me. It fries them instantly, then you just dump the body into the trash, no mess.

    I don't like killing animals, really, but when you have an outbreak you don't have much choice.

    Here's a link...I have the blue one on the right.

    Does it smell like burning flesh? Just curious.

    I have used those adhesive traps. Once I saw mouse stuck to one in my garage once. I picked it up to put it in the trash and the little fucker started squealing. C'est la vie.
