33. Set a couple more traps. I had one that the critter kept eating off of and then one day, without it
being baited, it got the little guy. (I also caught one mouse in two traps and two babies in one trap)

I hate, hate, hate doing it but I can't have them messing all over my kitchen and putting my family at risk for illness.
