Don't re-use traps.

Pffffft. Doesn't make any difference, unless there's blood on it.

I recall traps being used in consecutive order. Blood or not.

How does the mouse know?

They do have noses, you know...

Somewhat OT. I saw on a nature show that while humans can't smell
many/most/all things after a while of constantly smelling them,
beagles and bloodhounds don't react that way. They continue to smell
the scent.

I guess this is could be learned from movies where they go for hours
tracking someone, but I try not to take everything in movies as truth.
