What do mice find irresistible?

What do mice find irresistible?

Mice are like any other animal; their main concerns are ensuring they have access to food, shelter, and water. However, while mice are omnivores that will eat almost anything they can get their paws on, there are some foods that they find utterly irresistible. If you want to attract mice into traps, these are the best foods to use as bait.

Sweet and sugary substances like honey, syrup, and jam are all irresistible to mice. The smell will draw them in, although the consistency will make it difficult for them to eat quickly. This can be an advantage if mice are snatching food from your traps without triggering them. Placing a dollop of honey or maple syrup on your traps as bait is an excellent way of encouraging mice to investigate.

What do mice find irresistible?

Like many of us, mice love chocolate and candy. While they make for excellent bait, they can be difficult to place on a trap. Larger traps such as cage traps are better-suited to this kind of bait because you can easily set the bait on the floor. 

In nature, mice’s diets consist primarily of fruit, seeds, and nuts. All of these make excellent irresistible bait, but mice will also eat meat when it’s available. High-protein options like hot dogs and beef jerky are effective choices because the meat won’t go bad when left out. You don’t need a big slice of meat to use as bait; you only need to cut off a small piece.

Many people have found using wet pet food to work effectively as bait. The food is designed to taste and smell nice to animals, and it contains plenty of protein. If you already have pet food at home, this also saves you the trouble of buying food just to use as bait.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Top-notched pest control service!! Went above and beyond to eradicate the rats from our property. Gabriel even offered to further investigate the infestation issues for our neighbours. We found him to be extremely professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend Gabriel to anyone in need of pest control.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
