Why am I not catching any mice?
If you are sure that mice are present in the house and your set traps are not catching them you will want to change your strategy a bit.

  • Mice can be just like people preferring one type of food over another, change the bait up and ensure it is fresh.  Visit our bait suggestions section (link) for ideas.
  • You may also want to review the section on trap placement (link).  Properly setting the traps in areas where the mice are present is critical as is how you place the actual trap.
  • You may also consider adding more traps to increase your likelihood of catching mice.
