Separate names with a comma.
It was not ALONE!!
I use them in my camper and compact track loader and they catch em every time. We use them in the house when needed as well and of course you gotta put them against the wall or at a pinch point. I’ve trapped a few critters in my younger days and a mouse is the easiest thing there is to trap.
I reckon I have smarter mice over here on the ridge then. I'm not kidding - zero mice caught in those here over decades. Might be ETPC uses an inferior brand? They still do put those sticky things down in the garage - where they catch dozens of insects and spiders and lizards and such.
My mice are the other way Ed... couldn't get one in a trap if their life depended on it, like they step over it. Right into the sticky tray beside it. Gotta use the big snake ones though, the little mouse ones they just drag away with the legs outside the pad.
Our mice licked the peanut butter off. 8 times! Then I switched to a little piece of Provolone cheese wrapped by a few inches of dental floss. BOOM! 4 kills in 4 nights. Yeah, I found the hole the contractor made for the hot tub wiring, and filled the joist with clear silicone caulk. No activity since, (3 months ago) and my wife is very happy
I knew a guy who lived in a Winnebago. His wife saw a mouse so he grabbed the .22 pistol....yep. Missed the mouse and killed the water heater. Three times.
I hit a gopher once with a .22, but it was outside. A little tricky, his head kept bobbing up and down, would not keep still for even a second at a time. Only took one shot though.
Yeah, that was key - to bait the trap so that they had to work at it to get the goody. I shove the little hollow pocket full of stinky cheese and leave none on the outside. Works every time...and yep, I found where they were getting in. As a matter of fact, my mouse detective skills were on high alert apparently - I traced their entire path from outside the house, through a tiny hole in the foundation wall, up through the floor insulation and through the plumbing hole for the kitchen sink, behind a cabinet... You could say I got a tad obsessed. I hate the damn things. What started it all was opening the kitchen closet late one night and picking up a pair of beady eyes on me before I turned the light on. Little bastard was sitting on a metal wire shelf, frozen in place and staring at me. My first instinct was to grab the sucker bare-handed, but I overshot the grab and wound up literally punching the damn thing to death against the wall. Oops.
So now they ricochet all over and take yours or someone else's eye out, still not a good option!
Well I guess what works for me won't work for all I've never had a issue it's a .22 once it hits something it's about done moving! But to each his own . Mouse traps and poison won't work for me I have a toddler !
Sometimes it's the 3rd mouse that gets the cheese.
My cat always inspects my new arrival cars for rats and mice. V8 AMC hornet
I have a barn that was infested with rats and mice. I put out trays of my homemade rodent killer and they all soon disappear. Mix together in a bag... 1 part each of flour, sugar and baking soda. Dump out a small pile on tin plates and set in their traffic areas. Cheap and works wonders.
I've always wondered of they'll drink antifreeze. After my homemade concoction that I put out they sure must be thirsty.
Shawn Woods on YouTube has tested many methods for catching rats and mice.
Probably all left to host a baking show on FOX....
Watching videos on youtube trying to find a way to catch the mouse without a trap. Would prefer to catch it without leaving the house so I know it did not run off and hide elsewhere. That was the initial post - Post #1 I think most of you need reading glasses Happy Turkey
Hang on Do mice like Turkey
Let's face it.....he was doin the nasty under your refrigerator!
I think everyone is just pointing out a lesson we all learned long ago............the hard way. "The right tool for the right job."
