Wandering Aimlessly


A Better Mouse Trap

by Phil Burkhouse


Each fall our house becomes a target for rodent invaders known as mice.  Our house sits in a transition area between farm fields and woods and is an edge habitat ideal for many critters.  Field mice regularly invade our house looking for a warm place to spend the winter, and while I don’t blame them, they are not a welcome guest.  Mice get in through any opening and then proceed to search every nook and cranny for food and shelter; needless to say, they can be a problem.  Mice are disease carriers, so for years Mary and I have used the traditional mouse eliminators that have been terminating mice for as long as I can remember—the Victor mouse trap.
