HELP! Mouse on board
I recently acquired a critter on board. Hope there''s only one. Anyway, anyone got any tips on how to get rid of it. I don''t want to poison it, as it may go into the bilge and die and smell really bad if I can''t find it. I have tried traps, smart bugger just trips them and eats the food. Just knowing it''s there gives me the creeps.

Try a Havaheart live trap - always worked for me. Use peanut butter.

Why not borrow a cat for a while.

I used traps with peanut butter. Worked well. Large trap for a big guy.

Are you shure it''s a mouse? Could be a rat. Iwas always lucky with mouse glue on a big page of a news paper with some cheese in the middle. But be careful it''s real sticky stuff. Terrible to take of the flooring if it runs of the newspaper.
