[Tweeters] OT humane kill traps for mice

I recently discovered some new quick-kill snap traps made by Victor. I
was having trouble with deer mice in my house. I love deer mice and
rodents, but wasn't getting anywhere with live trapping. These worked
amazingly well and each time the mouse had been killed instantly by a
blow to its head. They are also made of metal and plastic and are much
easier to clean that way than wood traps. I highly recommend them!!! I
just hate the idea of any living thing dying a slow painful death if it
can be prevented.

We have recently been hit with an invasion of mice *inside* our
home--pantry, sewing machine, coffee pot, couches. We are getting
out this week to clean and seal the crawl space. I have bought hundreds
dollars of Tupperware and Clorox and haven't seen any more, at least.

I'm having trouble with this. Any suggestions?
