      dont give em anything to eat and they'll soon off, failing that, use a good old fashioned mouse trap baited with peanut butter.

            Friends advised me to use humane traps as he does. He then uses the live mice for piking, putting them on a treble he reckons, is just revenge for any damage done to tackle etc.

              No wonder the anti's give us some stick. That is crazy and downright cruel.

                  Alternatively,contact DNW & Kev Bell from TA Eastern Region. Just ask them to stand in your garage for an hour and talk to the mice, i can guarantee that ALL the mice will lose the will to live and die of boredom.

                  It seems to work well on Humans.

                      Some of the 'crack' shots on here could take them out from 50yds with a 35g method feeder.

                            I had a problem the other week when I put my hand in my carryall and a mouse jumped out the other end!

                            I have kept all my pellets and groundbait in used plastic milk bottles. Not having anything to eat doesn't seem to worry them too much!

                            Now they just eat keepnets, waders, landing nets, the wire on my thermometer that I use for taking the water temperature and the braid on my colourometer, even the foamy bits of the pole rollers and the seal around my bait fridge. I put poison down about 2 weeks ago but they won't eat that. However a chocolate button on a trap seems to work. Since last week I have had 2 mice but one got away with the choccy button!

                            I will get them all in the end so if any them are reading this - BE WARNED AND MOVE OUT!

                              use chocolate with some caramel in ie mars bar so it sticks to spike on trap not so easy to escape with
                              also poison chocolate so if the blighters get away with it........
