A month ago an unnamed frequent poster recommended raisins over peanut
butter for mouse traps.
Well, mice don't like raisins. Immediately prior to the posting I caught 6
mice in 8 traps in a week with peanut butter. I put out new traps with
raisins. Three weeks later I caught 1 mouse. There were mouse droppings
right by the raisin baited traps, so there were plenty of mice to catch.
You can be sure I rebaited with pb.
Conversation by the mice looking at the trap.
Mouse #1: "Hey I like penut butter, but for some reason I'm not
interested in this."
Mouse #2: "That's because there is a big turd on it."
Mouse walk off.
I have been having good luck with the raisins.
PB might be better, but my little bastards got good at licking it all
I have a few spots where the 'cheese pedal' traps work great!.
I have one opening to the outside I haven't bothered to plug, I just
leave a cheese pedal trap to each side, ...
I had my best luck with chunks of hard salami wedged firmly into
the traps. I was working in my garage once and got 3 in about 5
minutes on 2 traps. While I was re-setting the first, the second
went snap, and the first trap got its' second mouse (on the same bait)
