Ugh. Mice.

The mouse running around in my room's increasingly pissing me off. Those 'humane' traps my roommate use are useless. I'm seriously considering getting something lethal and putting it in my room.

Look, I know those mice didn't really ask for it, they're just trying to live and all, but they're really causing problems in this house.

Get a kitten? Those are lethal enough.

Or even BORROW a cat from someone who owns one.

My parents tried mouse poison, but it doesn't kill them immediately, so they die someplace where you have no idea where they are, and very slowly decompose while stinking up your home.

The best traps I've seen are the classic spring-loaded traps. Bait them with a little bacon and the mice will go nuts for them. The traps are designed so that they instantly kill the mouse, as long as the spring is still springy-enough. You know where the trap is, so you don't have to deal with the smell afterwards.

You could also try baiting your humane traps with bacon. Mice love bacon. Peanut-butter isn't as good as bacon but it's better than cheese.
