Little Guy has been such a good mouser since he moved in that I stopped catching mice outside the house. A few days ago I saw a mouse run behind the stove.
Oh no, not having that.
I do not use poison, but water is the most effective lure I have used.
Five is more than I have caught at any one time, tells me I am overrun with mice.
I caught a lizard yesterday, darn.
I fill the bucket 1/3 full of water and butt it up against the house wall. The mice come for the water and can’t get out. I feel mean, but no toxins.
It has rained so much I wasn’t sure it would work, but there is the evidence. I reset the trap, and will likely stop there. I threw the bodies in the woods for others to eat, used the water on a shrub, and used fresh rainwater in the trap.
As it gets cold, Little Guy should keep my house free of mice again. One little Papillon can only do so much.
