    Hawks, Owls, and some other large birds I don't recognize, all patrol our property. In spite of that, there is still no shortage of mice wanting to live in my storage building. It's nature that mice can reproduce faster than predictors can eat them. I have found nothing works better than poisoning. The down is that it doesn't kill them immediately, leaving a chance of other animals dying from eating a poisoned that wanders outside.

    Those boxes are great! Put a little dab of peanut butter in them and position it with the opening by the baseboard of the room so the mice will go right into them.

    I would recommend these ass kickers if you can find them in your hardware store. I use these in most of my accounts and these are really easy to set, you can set the trigger with your foot without fear of getting your thumb broke, Rat disposal is easy also because you just pinch the trigger to release the dead rodent into the trash without having to touch it. They are called "T-Rex" and they also make a smaller version for mice.

    Old school snap traps with peanut butter. I had a mouse in my garage last year. Three nights in a row the little bastard got the peanut butter off the trap with out setting it off. The fourth night I forgot to reload the bait and I come out the next morning and I caught the stupid little f%cker with no bait on the trap. LOL :D
     
  10. Funny you say that. I have smart country mice that clean off the peanut butter time after time and don't get caught. I have them set correctly and tried several brands hoping someone else has a better mouse trap. They also seem to enjoy eating the Irish Spring soap as well. :(

    Thanks for trying! You will not be able to convince those people who believe in moth balls and dryer sheets. They are the same ones who claim dryer sheets and mothballs keep elephants away :) You don't see any elephants do you?

    i put slices of irish spring soap bars on top of dryer sheets all over in my `56 chevy convert last fall,
    this spring i found green tinted mouse shit all over the dryer sheets, and the soap half ate.
    the little bastards seem to thrive on the stuff!

    I have a 5 gallon pail, half full of used motor oil. It seems to catch any mice that ever end up in my garage, I don't know why, but from time to time, I've found one floating around in the used oil. So I just leave it in the corner.

    I never have any trouble with mice. Live on twenty acres and there are at least 15 barn cats. I have a cat feeder that I open for about 3 hours in the afternoon. If that isnt enough then they hunt for food. When a mouse steps onto my place it is an automatic death sentence. They have even drug rabbits to the barn. So for me the rodent problem is solved with cats cats and more cats

    1. Kill first mouse.
    2. Place mouse on small X made from popsicle sticks.
    3. Place in building as a warning to other mice.

    You need new traps, Use the T-Rex and you will catch them. Even the "Smarter" country rodents unlike the dumb city rats. LOL

    Soap I find works well. They eat it and I have no idea what is does to them but I never see them again. I have a couple of small cakes on the floor in places I now they have been and you can see they eat it.

    On the off side of that I get Bluetongue lizards in my works looking for the mice.

    They grow to about a foot long and could give a nasty bite but sure clean up the mice.

    Best water bucket trap I have seen had an axle across the center of the bucket. On the axle was an empty toilet paper roll covered in peanut butter. Mouse/Rat climbs the ramp, lead there by the alluring scent of PB out in the open air, not trapped in the bucket. Mouse/Rat reaches out from the edge of the bucket to eat the PB, the toilet roll spins and he falls into a nice cool bath!

    i like using moth balls or crystals. nothing likes the smell and all i do is open the container and put it in someplace and close it up.

    works great for me.........
