Mice in cold weather
Mice and rodents in general are not big fans of the cold, in fact, most start looking for shelter when the first signs of the frigid cold start to show. As many of us know the shelter they seek is often times our very homes. They sneak in, usually through a crack or crevice, and set up shop in our kitchens. Aside from catching them once they are in, one was to help raise the chances of catching them is to make it as uncomfortable as possible for them. If they are getting a constant meal of crumbs every night and water that is left in a cup in the sink, then why would they go after the bait you are setting for them on the traps? Make sure your kitchen and living areas are barren waste lands. Keep the landscape bare and that will usually increase the chances of bait acceptance on snap traps or poison bait in general. Happy Hunting.
