Probably due to dirt/dust on ball, inside mouse, and on mouse pad. We keep ours cleaned with alcohol and Q-tips and cotton balls when it becomes sticky. Clears problem right up. Good Luck!

I agree you should keep the ball and pad clean, but it's not enough to just clean the mouse ball and pad.
Take the mouse ball out and look inside the mouse-------you should see two mini-rollers at right angles to each other. You'll probably see a line of dirt built up on each. Clean both with alcohol until all the grime is gone. DO NOT use a sharp object or scrape the rollers.
Good luck.........
