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

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

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

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.
