A cat is good or the old fashion traps. I tried a humane trap once and got a video of them climbing over it an having a good laugh. But, glue? I wouldn't want my four little mouse legs glued to my death, (if I was a mouse).

The one time long ago that I used a glue trap, I caught a mouse. When I went to collect him, he let out that little high-pitched "cheep" sound and and I instantly had a flash of Vincent Price's face on that fly crying "help me" from that spider web. I threw the rest of the glue traps away.

I think those electric traps at Home Depot shock them and kill them in a few seconds. That seems more humane to me than the glue or poison. I found a small breech in my house and also got a few cats. I have no more mice.

I bought four different kinds of traps and caught one mouse.

I balanced a paper plate with sunflower seeds glued to it over a 13 gallon kitchen trash can and caught 22.



BTW - Some "melted" dry ice in the trash can puts them right out.

Ours thrown away after one time too. :(

Come to think of it, maybe OUR problem isn't so bad. :)
