Re: Mouse Invasion Time

As our warehouse holds mostly certified organic grains, we are not allowed to use poison bait. I don't think we would anyway for fear of a mouse dying in some food grade tote bag of grain. We do use alot of traps. 90% of the mice are caught in the spring. The traps have an almond kernel (organic of course because even Oregon mice are concerned about pesticides) glued to the tripping mechanism. They are placed in every corner and under about every 10th pallet space. They are checked via flashlight twice per week. We very rarely catch mice anymore.
