They lurvvvve bread that has been moistened into a ball on their traps. Munch it like crazy they do. Little rascals.

Fee For All Wrote:Right. I'm off out to get a humane trap. I'll let you know how I get on.
We had mice in our "conservatory" and I got a "humane" trap to deal with them.

First thing I noticed on getting home was that it said to check the trap every four hours. Like I'm getting up at three in the morning to check a mouse trap. Turned out that if you forget to check the trap for a while then the mouse dies (a horrible lingering death due to extreme stress and exhaustion, no doubt...) And then there's the problem of where to humanely keep the mouse before you've time to release it...

The first mouse I caught I managed to let escape the moment I opened the trap.

The second mouse I put in a bucket. The moment I put it down it leaped out of the bucket and escape. (Amazing spring heels, these mice.)

The third mouse I put in the bucket and promptly trapped by putting a lid over it. Unfortunately when I was taking it out to release it the lid got dislodged and the mouse again leaped to freedom.

After that, the mouse stayed in the trap until we reached the release point. Risk of death or no risk of death.

So the upshot was that I caught about five mice, and killed about seven. I'm not sure that my attempt to be humane was very successful really.

BTW peanut butter is outstanding bait Smile Best of luck!

Well, hadn't seen him for a couple of days so guessed the cat had had him.

But he's back, judging by the evidence on a plate I'd left to go into the dishwasher.

Either that or I hadn't quite finished last night's caviar.
