    Fruitabu fruit flats (Target has their own brand of them now). It was the only thing that would catch the mice in the traditional traps in our house. We tried cheese and peanut butter with no success. My brother had trouble with a mouse shortly after we did and couldn't catch it with anything he tried; first night with a fruitabu and he had his mouse.

    They catch all sorts of vermin....and make pretty good little bird dawgs, too. My old one used to work on a quail rig in south Texas, picking up cripples.

    Or even...



    Or, the foolproof way - with slight modification

    Instead of really pushing the cheese on, melt it onto the trap - to a charred (burnt) but adhesive state with a cigarette lighter. And then really push it on. Thereafter rats or mice will never get the bait before it gets them first.

    Or a Rat Terrier - no trap, bait, or training needed. Plus they make great bed warmers!

    Very effective, I'm sure, but too yappy, too bossy, and too much of a trip hazard for me.
