Read a tip recently for inside mouse traps. That was to put several
around the room w/cheese, but do not set the trap. Note where most
cheese is eaten, and move all traps to that area and set 'em then.
Or get a cat.
'cause some of us are worried that something else like a bird or other
desirable critter will eat the poison, or possibly eat the poisoned
That's why I use a live catch trap that only catches mice.
Then why bother w/ the trap?
The only real purpose of a trap imo is for those instances where you
need to prevent the point of demise being somewhere inaccessible or
there is some other proscription against the use of a bait station.

Also, many people use traps because they don't want to use poison. If
you were the type to use poison, maybe you would forgo the traps too.

Because the mouse eats the poison, has time to run behind the stove or under
the sink or behind the refrigerator, then dies.

one come along ...............
Heeeeeere'e yer sign.
I use Tin Cats.
A metal trap that does not kill, needs no bait to speak of, last forever,
and, if you're a Liberal humanitarian, you just take them over to your
brother-in-law's house and set them free. Or, if you're an evil Republican,
you toss the trap into a bucket of water and let soak for five minutes. Tin
Cats are made by Victor, the people who make mouse traps, and are available
at most hardware stores for $15 or so.
true, i usally bait a mouse trap with peanut butter
I get 4 to 5 a year during the cold months
I had one that could actually eat all the p.b. off the little metal
death spoon without tripping the bar, he tripped it one day and I got
him, but it had only snagged him by the tail.
What is even nastier, is a wife screaming for help, who is stuck to a
glue trap she was removing from the cats face, got stuck and then
realized there was a mouse too!
