They are driving me over the edge...

Those dark brown rice
Were not brown rice
But the droppings
Of a visiting pest
My son saw one
He too thought not fun
And joined my battling mice quest

We set out every trap
We could buy from Wal-Mart
We checked all the time
But nothing was seen
Except cheese removed
And peanut butter licked off
These mice are smart and clean

There's this lady I know named Barry
She's got mice that are small but hairy
She's set up a trap
She's just heard a snap
Now the mice are not so merry

Cheers, Lynn (with love, peace, and no mice),

Lynn, try this, it worked for me. Take aluminum foil, wad it up and place it in all the cracks where you think them pesky varmits sneak in. Mice hate the foil, they are somehow repulsed by its presence.

Good luck!

I always thought I was doing the traps wrong, guess I wasn't huh...Ed

I remember them eating the traps clean. Gave up and called the exterminator. He put bait "hotels". That took care of the problem, along with routine exterminator spraying.

God bless you and good luck. Kathy

There are traps that capture them live so you can release them in someone else's area. LOL A box designed so they go in the hole but can't get out. Catches multiples and there's no need for bait.
Or, get a five gallon bucket, paint three inches below the rim on the inside with peanut butter, set a board sloping from the floor so they can access the rim. Four inches of water in the bottom insures they don't jump out.

Love a mouse day.
They love you very much,

Good luck with the meese..

Mix a little bacon in with the peanut butter they might as well have a feast while they are evading your traps. He He
