A Better Mousetrap (No, Really!)
Mice don’t spend all their time foraging for food. They also spend a lot of time searching for bedding materials. Instead of baiting traps with cheese or peanut butter, try cotton balls. Just tuck the cotton into the trap mechanism. While the mouse is trying to tug it free, the trap is sure to spring. You can use the trap again and again without rebaiting. And Rex and Mittens won’t get their sniffers snapped anymore because they won’t be tempted by the cotton. — Walter Fick Jr.
