Best bait

What is the best food to bait a mouse trap with, other than chocolate ( I am not sharing mine !! ) They are welcome to anything else we have but not my chocolate.

Peanut butter

Second that Horace and I alwayshave to  try a finger end full every time I have to open the jar to get some more bait.

I have sucess with raisins, there're easy to work with, and you don't get sticky fingers. .

I hate peanut butter, love marmite, but fortunately the mice have no taste as they don't like it.

Ive caught 2 in my two traps every morning for a week now with peanut butter.

the idea of a paste rather than an object is to keep the target at the trap as long as poss.
a mouse will easily steal a bit of chocolate, or a raison, etc...... but a paste he has to LICK off, and when its all gone he will lick on, firing the trigger.

has anyone seen this fantastic mouse vid.................. http://youtu.be/28-K0-iaUgE
