Default Mouse trap bait?

Why not use mouse poison bait on a mouse trap?

If the mouse steals the bait that might also do the job.

Outside of course.

Default Mouse trap bait?

Why not use mouse poison bait on a mouse trap?

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

And starts ripening. Then the second one and the third one and the fourth
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.

SOMEWHERE in the walls.

Maybe he got ahold of some poison. Or maybe just a bad clam.

Poisons have their downsides, particularly when used indoors.

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.
