My poor uber hippy semi budhist wife let her aunt Susan talk her into spring traps, rather than sticky ones or poison, for our mouse problem. She convinced my wife the spring traps are more humane and quick.
My wife, Sharaya, says you got some ‘splainin to do Susan!
Now me, I didnt care, Budha be damned, I kill vermin when the choice is them or my kids. And if I am killing you, your pain isnt near as important as my ease of use.
Gotta say, for myself, the sticky traps dont end up with the arterial spray patterns worthy of a CSI episode… Not that the visual bothers me…. having to clean up avoidable messes bothers me though…
