    SO you gotta look at where the mice can go to find food due to holes in walls/ gaps in baseboards/ electrical box covers missing/ holes in the back of kitchen cupboards & drawers. I found maybe a doz places a mouse could get at the food, plugged them and the mice went away cuz there was no food

    metal flashing is good thing because its mouse proof, its thin easy to cut with tin snips, you can slide it between baseboard & wall to cover holes or you can glue it in place with silicone sealer

    We seem to have a few mice every winter but it's scary since hantavirus is endemic here. Theoretically I should be wearing a full hazmat suit with respirator to deal with them. (My "hazmat suit" is the golf caddy coveralls my kid got one summer when he worked at the local super exclusive golf club. Good for oiling the house and for expeditions in the crawl space when I can't avoid them.)

    Also, I doubt a mouse would be strong enough to move a glue trap much. Either it was a rat, or something tried to get the mouse off the trap, in which case I'd guess a snake.

    it could be a woodrat, they carry away snap traps like they’re osprey daypacks, .....they laugh at small snap traps...z, ive caught one( they are territorial), then the mice moved in, i caught about 5 in snaps with peanutbutter, ......i was getting real cocky like i could catch anything, but it was getting tiresome as they crap everywhere,.....then the mice went to none, but solitary tick tack size turds reappeared,...... turns out a new wood rat came to town and declared soverienty.... i could not catch it..... , hired a pro varmint catcher who had special traps i had never seen before or since, that got him.....this is just life next national forrest and wilderness....


    btw: if u kill one with poison in a wall, the smell is god awful and attaches to everything u own

    Thanks for the rec. I'll look in to getting some but right now I've got people coming to stay so I've got to do something within the next couple of days.

    Called another pest control company. Kinda hate doing that but as I said the last time my regular guy came out he barked at me claiming I wasn't having him out often enough but at the same time telling me they may be resistant to the chemical now. Thing is I'm supposed to be on a quarterly rotation with him but he doesn't keep up with the schedule. Whatever. I just want them gone.

    looking around for greener pastures she decided to chase off a french couple next to us and ate their lunch

    alors, those french are all rifle droppers eh

    I must have no more mice. Or they figured out the trap. I'm guessing the former. Maybe I'll try a different spot
    No longer stuck.

    Lived in a house that was mouse haven twice a year. Traps worked great, but after the first dozen or so, the chore got tiresome. Then a little least weasel moved in. Would also check out the trash bucket under the sink and was not afraid to venture out of the cabinet to say a quick hello. Not a single mouse in the house for 8mo that the little critter graced us with its presence. No stink or other issue either, except the useless cat hated it.

    Roommate in that same house was active in the local outdoor horticulture. One harvest season, he asked me if I had been trimming his crop, or otherwise moving produce around in the trimming/drying room. He questioned his cat too as pussy liked to munch on fresh leaves. Both of us denied any knowledge of the disappearance. So the investigation continued out the window (the screen had a hole in it, hence poor pussycat being questioned), following evidence to the dormers where copious quantities of product was discovered stuffed into the eaves. More was found in the woodshed at the back of the house. Turned out a packrat had moved in and found a taste for fresh bud, and proceeded to help itself in its preparations for winter. Roommate went through a couple of styles of trap to rid himself of the woodrat. Took a #3 leghold trap covered with fresh trimming to finally remove the little stoner. I always wondered if the final consumer of that seasonís harvest ever remarked on the unique odour as a result of it at one time forming the cozy bed of a packrat.

    I had a customer who would live trap chipmunks and mice and then put the whole trap into a big cooler full of water to finish them off. I wish I would have never asked her what the live trap was for. Cats FTW!
