A TOOTH-pike?

I might reccomend something like glass shavings in honey, and caustic soda on the floors, but that wouldn't be very nice, would it?
Most poisons lose effectiveness after a while...they seem to adapt so unless you're going all out for an exterminator (one that garauntees their work), try those electric things that you plug into the wall...they work by all accounts I've heard, bugs, mice, rats, and you don't have to kill anything that way, they just fuck off. If there's an ongoing hygeine problem next door, you COULD always call the health deparment, or animal welfare if it's to do with how they're keeping their animals.

I wish I had a plug-in "Dork Repellent" machine that made idiots stay away. I would pay sixty or even seventy dollars for that. Maybe a little more. Okay, eighty.

Yep, if I had the choice I'd never put a creature to death if I didn't have to. I feel guilty even if I wash a bug down the sink.

Some people use geckos as their method of pest control, particularly the Asian varieties. You see, it sort of creates a symbiotic relationship, plus, the animal takes care of your problem. You will need to keep your toilet seats down and a nice bowl of water out.

I guess this would work if you have a continuous problem, like roaches, for example. However, if you've got other pets, this isn't an options. Also, I'd still be worried about the little gecko. (They're really cute, especially the fat tailed gecko).

If it's your garden (flower, herb, veggies, etc) you have two options for pest control without any use of pesticides and you get to use animals. The first thing you can do is take all of your house spiders and space them out in your garden. They'll build. The other option is to go to a greenhouse or nursery and buy a praying mantis egg. Follow the instructions and when those babies hatch, the ones that make it (as Nature's will) will set up housing...

Go watch "Of Unknown Origin", and take some tips from ol' Bart.

..ok, maybe thats not such a great idea. But it's a cool movie just the same!

Catch one, chop its head off, and put it on a pike as a warning to the other mice.
That's an awesome idea, but I gotta catch one first.

We have ahad a mouse problem ever since we almost got flooded, apparently the little bastards were making their homes down by the river.

We ended up putting anything at ll food related up in the top cabinets because the mice never made it up that far (nothing to climb on to get up there) and clean thoroughly as possible before we go to bed (the baby leves a shitload of food on the floor). So far, it seems to have worked, we got a day or two where you could tell the little fuckers were foraging for food (they shit EVERYWHERE), but that seems to have stopped.

They stay where the food is, so if they have none available, they go away. If you have pets, put their food away at night (we keep ours in a resealable container)


When all else fails, try one of the following:

Kill one, then send a picture of it wrapped around a sardine. Think Luca Brazi, only small.

Cut of the head of one and slip it into their bed while they sleep.

if you have time, you couls probably fashion cement shoes by the dozen using some quick-krete and dixie cups.

Breed a super creature designed to feed on mice only, then die after a few days. These kinds of things almost never breed on their own and turn into a race of giant bug people who live under the srtreets of new york, ultimately to be killed by Mira sorvino and some dork with glasses.

Get a comical looking cat and watch thier antics. Doesnt kill them, but sure is fun to watch them run into the hole and see the cat's face turn into the same shape because he hit it so hard.


Place some cheese on a plate and sit by it with a hammer. It gets messy, but one of two things will happen, you will get all of them (buy a lot of mr clean....), or they will start going somewhere else for food.
