Did you know if you have a mouse hole near a wall just smear a bit of mint toothpaste nearby and the smell will deter them?

Did you know that baiting a mousetrap with peanut butter is more advantageous than cheese?

Did you know that if you set your mouse trap inside a brown paper bag you won’t have to handle the remains?
