no joke... Mayonnaise has been the most effective thing I have ever used. McDonalds McChicken sauce is amazing for mice

Default mouse bait

we have had a least one mouse problem every year for a few years now (rural setting)....

Every time I have caught mice in a snap trap with chocolate! People say tuna, peanut butter, jam etc. But I have never failed with chocolate, and its usually within an hour of setting the trap.

Good luck!

Dark chocolate works wonders . Its even better if it is a toffee or caramel bit of chocolate so it sticks better . Thats what i use and it hasnt let me down yet

Just an other tip ive used in the past .

Is to sprinkle some talc powder where you suspect the mice are coming from . You will see their marks in it and place a trap in the powder . The best trap to use is a tomcat the black plastic ones as the wooden snap traps are no use for catching baby mice

Mice actually don't like cheese. This is a common misconception, probably created by Tom & Jerry and other cartoons
Peanut butter or anything sweet is a much better bait for mice than cheese. You can find more tips for catching rodents here: http://www.pantherpestcontrol.co.uk/news/humane-inhumane-ways-keeping-mice-rats-home/

I also mess with the trigger mechanism so that the slightest disturbance sets it off because one time I found all the peanut butter gone and the trap hadn't sprung.
These mice are not dumb.

One got it in the neck and another on the snout but they were both beyond help. And one of them was almost mummified - I should check the traps more often.
