Glue-covered sticky traps are commonly used by pest control companies to capture mice. But it's also incredibly inhumane, since the mice often starve to death or chew off their own feet in an attempt to free themselves. While we don't advocate glue traps at Do Just One Thing, there is something you can do if you find a mouse stuck on one. All you need is a paintbrush and vegetable oil to free them. Pour a liberal amount of oil over the sticky part and use the paintbrush to nudge the mouse off the trap. Be sure to do this outdoors, where the mouse can recover in a warm area after you free it.
