I need help! I have a mouse in my pool who is stuck in there (he can't climb up the wall) and I don't want to "rescue" him and then have him take refuge somewhere on my house/property (I'm sure if there is ONE there is his whole family residing somewhere nearby). I have a pool enclosure, and only a short net so have the heebie jeebies and too afraid to "net" him, open the pool enclosure door, and get him onto my lawn for fear he will take refuge in or near my house, back yard, and don't want him near me. I can't afford a pest control company to come and remove him. What do you suggest? I live alone w/my 4 yr. old daughter, so this is purely a mom's one person job and as you can tell, too afraid to "net" him (he'll crawl up the net pole onto my arm!) and too afraid to "kill" him (ew, blood!). The mouse just keeps swimming around and is hanging on the automatic pool vacuum hose for dear life. Do I watch him die a slow death? Stuart Little makes me think he's too cute to die.
I think your only choice is to net him. He will not crawl up the pole because he is so tired. I have an in-ground pool and I have mice in there all of the time. I "net" them and they just lie there all sad and tired and then I put him in the woods. I have never had them come in my house. He had to come from somewhere near your house so just place him back there. If you are worried about him coming back, set a "Decon" trap. They are the traps that kill the mouse and you never have to see it. You just see a dot that tells you it is captured and you throw it away. Home Depot has them. Otherwise, definitely ask someone to do it. Your final option is to let him die and then net him and throw him out. They can't swim forever and if you take the vacuum hose out, he will probably start floating by tonight.
