Other Names: Common House Mouse, Domestic House Mouse
Excellent hearing, vision, smell and touch have enabled the house mouse to become highly adapted to living in homes and inside buildings. A 1/4" opening is all they need to enter a building, so they often have access to many places along a building's perimeter.

◊ Thin slice of hot dog ◊ Bacon bits ◊ Peanut butter ◊ Nesting materials such as dental floss ◊ Gumdrops ◊ Chocolate ◊ Crackers
Tying the bait to the trigger will prevent the rodent from licking or nibbling the bait and stealing it without setting off the trap.
For baits that cannot be tied (e.g. peanut butter), it’s best to use small amounts.
