if you have so much insulation in the attic how do you get rid of the mouse there is no food source
If you have a mouse in your attic, then you likely have a mouse either getting into the rest of your home without you realizing it just yet and getting access to crums or some food somewhere in the home, or it has a food source outside the home. If its coming and going from the home regularly then your biggest key will be finding that entry point and eliminating it either with caulking, steel wool, etc. If you think they arent getting food in your home somewhere already, then you could likely easily trap them in the attic by setting a traditional snap trap on a beam in the attic with a variety of foods that would be attractive to a mouse. If you are worried about the insulation getting in the way of the trap, you can use a flat cardboard box or the top of a large plastic storage container as a sturdy surface over some insulation, and set the traps on it.
