Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

She was Cute, and now she's gone

This post was supposed to go a little differently.  It was supposed to conclude that my suspicions were right.  It won't.  It will prove me all wrong.

Since we've moved into this house in 2003 we can count on two yearly pesty events.  We get ants in the early spring (everyone in the cul de sac does) and we get a mouse in the winter (there's my assumption, A mouse).   We've found that, if at the first sign of winter thaw, we spray the perimeter of the house, we can avoid the ants that take over.  If we miss that first ,or do it too early, it takes more than a week to get rid of them all.  The mouse comes when it's cold, is very comfortable visiting and often comes out from under the couch to visit me after everyone has gone to bed.  She looks at me, I look at her, and she travels across the room to hide under the entertainment center.  I'm okay with that.  Getting caught off guard sucks but, up until now, the alternatives, for me, have been worse.

Snap Traps won't work because if they catch the mouse anywhere other than on the head, which they always do, then I have to listen to the squeaking while they try to free themselves.

Glue traps have the same effect.  Mouse gets paw stuck in trap, tries to bite off paw, gets head stuck in glue and squeaks until it is removed.

D-con~ We have small kids and pets.  Enough said.

I'm not a feminist or a girly girl.  I believe women can do anything men can do.  I also believe they get to choose which of those tasks they want to take on.  Rodent removal is NOT a job I feel I have to tackle to prove myself.

I'm up before everyone else.  I'm home most of the day while everyone else is at work and school.  I'm up several hours after everyone else goes to bed.  Listening to a trapped, undead, squeaky mouse and waiting for someone else to take care of it is not my idea of enjoyable.  Other than let the little critter come out to visit me every once in a while, what is the solution? 

 Nooski Moouse Trap.

Product Description

The Nooski Mouse Trap works every time. It's the first truly new design for a mouse trap in over a century. Its patented system uses latex rubber rings that kill the mice every time, and it can be used over and over again. It really is the 'better mouse trap'.

With the Nooski Mouse Trap you need no more fiddly springs and snap traps that catch your fingers and maim mice. No more cruel glue traps. No more dangerous poisons that cause mice to die painful slow deaths. The Nooski Mouse Trap is safe, clean and easy.

How does the Nooski Mouse trap work?

* The trap is set by rolling on a latex rubber ring
* The mouse is attracted by the bait, we use a little peanut butter
* The mouse works its way into the trap
* The latex ring is triggered
* The mouse dies swiftly inside or next to the trap
* Set the trap again with another ring

The mouse cannot run off and die in its nest causing bad odors and it is impossible for them to steal the bait without being caught. Other traps often fail or maim. The Nooski Mouse Trap works swiftly and humanely and works every time, guaranteed.

Whereas snap traps are often thrown out with a dead and bloody mouse, the Nooski Mouse Trap can be used again and again. Ten latex rings are included to catch ten mice, and Nooski Refill Packs give you unlimited use.

Designed and made in New Zealand. The Nooski Mouse Trap pack includes one clear trap, black safety tunnel and ten latex rubber rings to catch ten mice.

Trigger Housing
Simply roll the ring into position, no separate loading cone required. Built from tough ABS plastic, the NOOSKI Mouse Trap is guaranteed to give 100% success, every time.

Safety Tunnel
Acting as the bait container as well as the safety tunnel. The safety tunnel allows you to set the trap inside without worry of pets or children setting it off.

Length: 150mm, Width: 56mm, Height: 33mm, Weight: 50 grams.

This is, quite simply put, the best mouse trap. EVER...even if it did prove me wrong.  It came in the mail yesterday and I immediately turned the package over to Hubster.  He set it, and placed it behind the couch, while the kids and I were at a birthday party.  When he came home last night (from a late night DJ gig), the trap had already caught my little friend.  She was peacefully dead beside the trap.  He removed her, reset the trap and put it back.  He told me all of this this morning when we got up.  I was sure there was nothing else to catch.  Deluded that there was only one friendly little critter.  He moved the couch.  There it was.  The second little critter.  No noise.  No blood.  I now will find out how seriously delusional I have been.  It's set for the third time.

Easy to use. Takes seconds to set.  We used peanut butter as bait and apparently they LOVE it.  It's quick and noiseless.  It's humane.  It's a solution to my winter-time dilemma.
