My mouse traps are feeding the mice.

3 months ago

I've been using traditional snap traps in this old farmhouse for decades. The Victor brand always worked best for me--but no longer. I noticed last year that the traps had a different feel when I set them, and sure enough, they have become considerably less sensitive. This morning I discovered that all three of the traps I set last night are still set, but now the bait (peanut butter) is missing. This has become typical.

Has anyone else had this experience with Victor traps? If you have another brand that works better for you, please let me know. If you use glue traps, please do not let me know. Thanks!
