We had a problem with mice at a vacation rental we stayed at recently.

I bought one of the intruder mouse traps and it killed about 6-7 mice during our short stay.

A little peanut butter was the recommended bait.

That's great... but I want to keep them out of the house in the first place, too. Otherwise, it's just a neverending battle. Once their scent is in the house, it invites more.

I found this article...

Use these techniques to keep your homestead vermin-free.

Rats and mice cause more damage inside our homes than any other mammal in the world. They spoil food; spread salmonella, hantavirus and 17 other diseases, and chew essential house parts such as electrical wires. Some species even kill young poultry and other livestock. Phenomenally fertile, a cute pair of mice living in your garage can grow into a gang of 20 or more in only a few months.

But you don’t have to use poisons to keep rats and mice from ruining food stuffs and livestock feed, or taking up residence in your attic. Instead, use the “seal up, trap up, clean up” strategy, recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, supplemented with good common sense.

Do you have any animals in the house? I mean, ones that were invited in? lol
