The spring time critter situation is in full force. I have been catching mice for a couple weeks. I use a regular wooden mouse trap and peanuts and the sticky pads. The best way I have found to trap the pests is to place the peanut end of the trap ( or the long end of the sticky pads) near a wall. Mice tend to run along walls so their wiskers can feel the way in the dark. Mice are more active in darkness. If you want to repel mice, the best way I have found is to use a cotton ball and a couple drops of pure peppermint oil. Mice really avoid the smell of peppermint. Mothballs are also a good deterrent for mice and ground squirrels. I usually put mothballs near the foundation of my house (under the mulch) so they will stay away. If I find a ground squirrel tube, I fill up the hole with a dozen or so mothballs.
