EPA set to ban D-con mouse poison
 
What will you do after the ban to keep the mice population down?http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/...n-rat-poisons/

I think the EPA sticks it's nose a lot of places it shouldn't, but there's always the bucket trap.

An adirondack mouse trap and a bucket trap are one in the same.
My record catch in the same pail is 9 mice.

Add some peanut butter to that spinner and you may be able to beat that record :thumbs:

Good neighbors that keep the mice away before they can get into house or camp is the best deterrent IMHO .

That weasel has a back up as well :thumbs:

If Ermin don't get them then Atwell will. That's my story and I'm sticking to it :thumbs:

In college our apartment had mice so we went to the hardware store and bought some D-con. We put the little box under the kitchen sink. Checked it after a few days (weeks?) Not only did the mouse eat all of it without batting an eye, he then turned the box into a nest!

Deb, Those kitties look very well fed. I bet they're only catching the slow mice, not Speedy Gonzales and his ilk. :)
