The ‘Apple Mouse’ is a decidedly basic peripheral. It only has one button, which is not clearly delineated anywhere on the mouse itself, it’s partially see-through and contains nothing inside it that is particularly exciting to look at (its only feature of note is the ubiquitous ‘Apple’ logo) but it is precisely this simplicity that gives it a unique sense of style.
Some options you have available to you are spring, electronic, poison and glue traps. All of these traps have been proven to work so it is just a matter of you deciding what works best for you. You also want to consider how much money you are willing to spend on these traps and how many will need. Since each type of trap has a different costs associated to it deciding how much you want to spend will offer you a great starting point when making your decision.
Fitting handily into any USB port, the mouse itself is attached via a short cable that fits easily into either the computer itself (or the port at the side of most Apple keyboards) one ‘click’ button removes the accidental ‘right clicking when you meant to left click’ debacle. Keyboard shortcuts or program menus supply this feature readily enough, thank you very much!
The electronic version of a mouse catcher offers the user electricity to kill the rodents. Again you will offer bait to encourage curiosity however this time once your little intruder has been tossed you do not have to actually touch it you can simply throw it into the trash since it is not reusable. This is a very popular choice for many people especially those who are queasy about touching the mouse.
If you do not have children or pets, then setting a poison trap may be the right option for you. It works by offering the mouse, poisonous products that are attractive to it. It will eat the food or pallets and will then die from its effects. Though some people do not mind this option others find it disturbing for the fact that it is actually poisoning a creature and some of them will not die instantly and therefore this can be very disturbing for some people.
With all of that technology available at your fingertips, the computer mouse is going to die. It has lived a long and respectable life. Many people will have a hard time giving the mouse up, and they don’t really have to. But, it has served its purpose, and it is time to move on.
