Got mice, nothing is stopping them.


I recall getting a letter from PETA asking me to change my company policy to catch-and-release for mice.

Shouldn't the same apply to weeds?

I like the wide plastic-pan traps, they seem to catch more than the narrow metal ones. I work peanut butter into a short piece of pipe cleaner (you ladies can use chenille) and hook this thru a hole in the trigger. This is easier than wiring/tying a piece of cotton to the trigger. I've also had luck with the clam shell type Victor traps. Put the PB inside the upper jaw so the mice have to step on the trigger to get it. I save a few metal jar lids. I mix PB with plaster-of-Paris and set it out in a lid. This causes a super and fatal constipation. Location of any device can be important. Mice have poor vision and generally follow walls to get around, but will detour for the scent of food.

Question

Got mice, nothing is stopping them.


Breathing life into a old thread.... Ive caught five mice in my attic over a one week period. I can still hear mice activity in the attic, but I havent caught anymore in the last three weeks. Any ideas? Using snap traps with PB.

Try a new trap . Mentioned earlier is the Victor wide yellow pan trap. Load it with a small piece of pecan pressed in with your pocket knife and set it to more sensitive. If the new trap improves success try sanitizing your old traps or buy new.

My snap traps got so old they would only stun the mice. I had one of those metal traps with the door. Uh, who knew you needed to check those everyday. Anyway it turned into a den of cannibals.

i had a mouse problem for about three days after i got my house. THey were coming in the hole for the dryer vent and living in the kitchen. I put out decon bait blocks and decon bait trays and a few glue traps. THe next day there were lines of them stretching from the kitchen to that hole, all dead. Several inside cabinets, stuck to glue traps. Even more inside walls. In just two days, about two hundred of them came in and made themselves at home. Decon works well, especially if they have to leave to find water. We found hundreds of them dead outside.

Snakes. Keep a rat or corn snake around, the mice will disappear.

I saw this video today and thought it appropriate to post to this thread. It sort of reenforces what I said previously. Act of Kindness Goes Horribly Wrong!

Although the video is improbable the catch isn't impossible. The cats I had at the time were lazy so I had to take the bull by the horns and do it myself. What I didn't realize, Mr. mouse had been cheating and Mrs. mouse assisted me in a manner I've never seen before.

I live in the middle of the woods and have had my battles with Mice. The best way I was to remove was the kill them all with poisen and than find out where they were coming in. I found a few small access spots under my siding where they were sneaking thier little bodies into and used "best stuff" Foam to seal the holes.....problem solved no mice....for now.
