Best way to catch mice in attic?


Dont want poison because then they will die in attic and stink,

Are old school mouse traps the way to go or are there better traps that can catch a bunch of them.

Old school traps if you don't want to poison them

Combination old school traps and sticky traps.

eta: When I lived with a buddy, his exterminator gave us a little block off this stuff that dried them out and made them go back outside looking for water.

Just toss a shite load of rat poison up there.

When it gets in their system, they feel like they have to go outside to get water, and they die there.

Old school traps. Or if you have access to a cat. Throw him in the attic and see what he gets. Sounds good on paper, doubt it would actually work unless its a crazy cat.

I tried an electric trap. Uses C batteries. Put peanut butter in there and its a little box. two metal plates. they have to step on both plates to get the peanut butter, and when they do it hits them with a charge kinda like a taser. Works great, and it has a little light that flashes to tell you when it was triggered. No mess like the traditional traps. It cost more than the other methods, but I spent weeks and much more money trying traditional traps, glue and poison. In two days I got rid of three of them and haven't seen any since.

Yeah, I've only had one rat die in my attic. It stunk to high heaven, but most of them have died outside, and I've been living in this house for 6 years now.

I think it's an anti-coagulelent that makes them feel like they have to get to water.

The only problem is you have to make sure your dog (if you have one) doesn't find it and chew on them. It'll F' them up if they ingest the poisoned rat/mice.

Rat snake or Milk Snake. They are harmless and used to being handled. Put one or two in your attic and you will never have a problem.

Old school traps work, and use peanut butter (not cheese). That shite will work within a day or two.
