You can now get rid of mice from your home or business by doing nothing more than looking at your phone and waiting for a real man to come and sort it out, thanks to a new internet-connected mouse annihilation system that's available in the UK.
The ResiConnect modern killing system comes with a clever name for a trap they thought up; RADAR, or rodent activated detection and riddance, a system that does away with the possibility that some of the animal's guts might have come out on your floor, as the sci-fi mouse neutraliser is a laser-activated death chamber that uses twin beams to sense when a mouse is running through it, then locks the doors and gasses the thing with carbon dioxide. It's as humane as holding a very small pillow over its whiskery little face and whispering "It's OK, daddy loves you" while it slowly falls asleep.
It's not a one-off thing you can buy, though, with ResiConnect coming as more of a complete solution that a team of operatives will install, monitor and take care of flushing all the dead ones down a toilet of your choosing, for a price tag in the low thousands, depending on the size of your rodent problem.
