Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter
In virtually every instance, Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter is the best mouse bait available. It has attractant qualities that can't be beat by any other type of food source. It is sticky, so it adheres to any part of the trap it needs to be applied to, it has an irresistible aroma that will attract mice form a distance, it is easy to use and it is very inexpensive. If you use a balancing platform walk-in humane trap, smear some peanut butter at the far end so the mouse must walk over the platform and trigger it. On snap traps, press the peanut butter firmly onto the trigger plate so the mouse must exert pressure to free the bait, and cause the trap to trigger. Virtually any creamy peanut butter will work, but Skippy is preferred by mice everywhere.
