Over many years I have learned:
- Bait it with peanut butter.
- Just a scant trace of peanut butter. Even a little too much and they’ll eat it without triggering the trap, the little cowards. The photo shows the bait dolloped and OVERFILLED.
- Lay the trap in a tight spot so the mouse has to wend and elbow its way toward the trap and can’t weasel back out.
- Listen for the sweet “snap” and gloat when you hear it.
- Set the trap the night before you expect a guest or guests who is/are a real mensch and not too squeamish to take the icky trap with the broken-necked mouse outside and dump the body in the field.
