It's a battle with field mice in my garage since they are attracted by the bird seed we keep in stock. Today this little fella got his foot caught on one trap and struggled into another trap nearby.

I do have metal trash cans to hold the cracked corn and the sunflower seed, but the mice keep coming. They have chewed gaps in my garage overhead door weatherstripping on the bottom and both sides. I've had to up my game.

I figure any mouse that gets trapped when baited by plastic cheese should be taken out of the reproductive pool.

eventually the fake cheese will no longer work. Mice will become more discerning. You may be shooting yourself in the foot there.
