    ive used bait then set on the sofa with a bb gun. lol
    but try one of the live trap boxes.. theyv alwayz worked for me.. then u can feel free to do what u want with the lil ****,, i cant stand mice/rats.
    when i had moved to alabama awhile ago i was out in the country and the place was crawlin with field mice when i moved it, litterly prob caught and killed like 30 of them ina week. with various traps, but one i remember i caught on a sticky pad and i took it outside and pumped the bb gun once and hit him in the chest , of course didnt penitrate,, but i did it like 5x and i gave it a heartattack or something caz it looked like his heart was so hard i cud see it pumppin out of his chest really weird and then he died.. lol..  i was bored, and had to send a messge to his friends lmaoo.

    Put some peanut butter on the trap, not just a nut.

    i had mice in my shop.  they'd always come out when i'd build a fire in my fire barrel.  i'd sit by the fire barrel with my bb gun and pop em as they came close.  killed 6 one night.  a few nights doing that, i didn't have a mouse problem anymore.  traps didn't work and neither did poison, but a fire, a keen eye, and ol red rider took em out

    LOL! Went and picked up two mice to feed to the Python a little while ago and stopped at Wal-Mart on the way home. Got back out to the truck and both mice had eaten through the box and were loose in the truck. We got allot of strange looks in the middle of Wal_Mart parking lot catching mice under my front seat.

    Food in a small trash can will catch the smartes rat. Tape a piece of rope to the outside of the can leading to the top so the rat can climb up and in the can but not climb out. The louder smelling the food (Subway or Krystal) the better the results. The rat cant jump high enough to get out of a 12 gallon can. The method of disposal will depend on how bad the rat has annoyed you.

    The trash can method is the best way.  at work everytime we empty our trash cans the next morning nearly everyone will have a mouse in it.
