Catch Mice

People seem to think that the only way to catch a mouse is to slap some peanut butter on the trigger of a mouse trap or squeeze some cheese on there. Mice love to eat anything, and the more choices you give a mouse the better the chances will be that you catch them. Chocolate syrup is popular, string tied to the trigger or a piece of cotton ball for nesting is another. If you notice the mice are chewing through your cereal boxes, then give them what they want and attached some cereal to the trigger. Bacon, bread, and beans are good. Try mixing chocolate and peanut butter together. Be creative as trapping and catching mice is an art. If you get good at it then you will be rewarded with a mouse free home.

Really, peanut butter works just fine. You don't need to be creative with mice... so long as there is no other food source around. If you remove that food source, such as an open bag of grain, the mice will readily go for the peanut butter. Of course, its fun to be creative when trapping mice and many baits will work, as you suggest.

Peanut butter does work wonders with mice. Ok, it wont work if there is a huge chunk of cheese right beside the peanut butter trap but if as Gerry wrote there is no other source then it will work fine.

peanut butter does work, but can be quite messy.
