mice love Kit Kats but your trap needs to have a spike on it or they'll nick it and get away caught 9 in one night while at work

That is the best mouse trap I have ever used. I had 11 mice in one night using it. The great thing is you can just leave it and dont have to worry about re setting it every time.

All of you using the poison traps that are saying the mice it kills are all within inches, or a couple of feet of the box. How do you know this? Is it not possible others have made it further away, and are somewhere decomposing, or worse still have gotten eaten by other animals and poisoned them? As nick said he's found them over 40 feet away, so I can't believe nobody else has had mice get this far

I purchased this item from B&Q on Oldgeezers adivce and the mice I have caught have only been 3 inches from the bait.

Me too. Thanks again, Gerry!

I change mine every year. I use four in the store room and they work superbly well.

I have used them and found different. I tried loads of different methods when I had an infestation and the traditional traps worked best for me.

These are a god send, and mouse proof. Put it all away.

Get some wire wool, and block up every single nook and cranny with it. If you go outside your property, you will see where they are getting in with a quick walk around and good look. Wire wool everything, every little crevice, fill it up with wire wool, with a screwdriver to poke it right in. You will not see it. They will stop getting in.

These bins are golden for your garage. I live on a street in London, with a field mouse history. Tonnes of them. I stopped them getting in. It's the only solution. Anything outside goes in one of those bins, and does not get damp, even when rained on all winter in freezing conditions. Lockable lid, that forces a seal.

Does anyone know how long those Rentokil boxes are good for before you need to replace them?
