Default What bait to use in mousetraps?

wrote in message
I use a live trap emptied at least twice a day,

I release them to the outdoors where they belong.

frankly i prefer to not kill anything unnecessarily.......

since something out there will kill me someday

I sealed the house well and dont keep a food source around. my big
mistake was the 50 pound sack of sunflower seeds............

with a plentiful food source, nice cozy house and one pregnant mouse.

over 40 went out in the live trap/ a few old geezers did die, probably
from old age and fear.. they were very grey like a old person.

dont kill them just relocate.

An owls nest would be a good place to relocate the buggers. Some times
killing things is good. Mice and insects, venomous snakes, pathogenic
bacteria and viruses. This list is not at all complete.

they come up with this striped stuff.
