I don’t use poison for fear it may affect my cats. Instead I use a paper towel or my bare hand. The other day I came down hard with my hand only to see its little legs frantically waving in the air towards life. I came down hard again and hated myself. Now I yell “You’re not welcome here.” If that doesn’t send them running, I yell again “Go! Go! Go!” I’ll buy some baking soda and try that.
