trying to trap a mouse i saw in my ROOM
Call The most clear cut sign of a mice infestation is, of course, seeing one, but since mice are cautious, nocturnal creatures, they can live in your house for months or even years without ever showing themselves. When lying in bed you might hear the telltale skittering and scraping sounds behind walls and beneath floorboards that tell you mice are about. Finally, you might smell them. Mice urine has a strong ammonia odour, which is strongest around their nest or their preferred feeding spots. Mice are incontinent and spread urine wherever they go, which can build gradually into a strong odour. It takes quite a lot of urine to produce a strong smell, so if you can smell mice, you need to act immediately because you likely have a severe mice infestation.
Mice can get into homes and become a real problem—building nests, contaminating food, causing damage, and spreading disease. But to get rid of them, you need to understand what they do and what they like. Trapping and removing mice is usually the best DIY method for controlling a mouse problem. Poisoning mice puts children and pets at risk. At the other end of the spectrum, failing to get rid of mice in the home in the name of being humane can lead to large populations inside the house and possibly the need for professional extermination. In other words, it's most humane to trap and kill or relocate mice as soon as possible to minimize the numbers that must be dealt with.

About House Mice
House Mice control can be accomplished by snap traps , glue boards or multiple mouse traps. They have a tendency to store food. If using a baiting program it is best to use a bait blox used with a rod in a Mouse Protecta Bait Station , so they don't carry the bait off for storage such as pellets for later consumption. Baits should be placed close to the suspected activity. About House Mice Since mice have a higher population number than rats, they are more widespread. Do I have a house mouse or a young rat?
I write about pest control for a living, so I have described mice and rats and the problems they cause in detail many times. But it became a whole different story when there was a mouse in MY house. A few months ago I was sitting watching television, when out of the corner of my eye I see movement. I watch in disbelief as a full-grown house mouse runs along the edge of my living room wall and disappears behind a huge shelving unit. What am I going to do? How am I going to walk around here without it scurrying across my feet?

I had literally JUST put my brand new matress topper on my bed and was super looking forward to sleeping on it and then that fucking mouse pops out. My room is real small as well so no matter where the mouse was, it would always be quite close to me. I'm not convinced they're any better though. I can deal with most things but waking up to that scurrying noise at night breaks me.
