Works extremely well. I go more flour to cement if they are reluctant to eat
it. Grout works fine.

This recipe works, I tried cornmeal ( 1 teaspoon) mixed it with 1 teaspoon of
hydraulic cement because I had some at home. Put it out in the deck where I
saw their droppings. In a day or two at the most, I got two of them drowned in
my swimming pool skimmer. It works very well. For those with pets, put it in a
mason jar, or something they can't get into. The corn meal may also attract
ants, so I used Diatomaceous Earth to kill them. Just sprinkle some of that
on the ants and they dehydrate and die. But for killing mice, this mixture
works very well and its cheap.

I'd like to try this out on roof rats. I have one of these empty bromadiolone containers. The hole is supposed to be small enough to keep squirrels, etc., out.

Cylinder is 14-in long, 4-1/2-in OD with one 1-7/8-in dia hole in one end, cut offcenter, near the left side. It has two semicircular pieces of thin metal with a 1-7/8-in hold cut in each one that lines up with the main opening. They cylinders are laid on the side, with the opening at the left side. Sketch...

We bought a house last year and the previous owner put rat poison EVERYWHERE.
We are still finding packets tucked in corners of the house, and we are still
finding dead rats on the property (we live on 5 acres in the forest). We are
against the use of poisons because of the collateral damage such as pets.
Earlier this year we found the most gorgeous fox dead on our spring box -- it
was in search of water and likely died from eating a poisoned rat. If we
poison the rats and mice, we poison the beautiful forest we live in. Traps are
the way to go, if you must, but sealing up the house is the best option.

OMG - cats outdoors? Are you kidding? Everybody knows that cats live in
houses. Before people kept cats as pets, cats used to build the most
magnificent houses from rainbows and wishes. They often had pet unicorns too,
who bred mice and rats for the cats to eat at parties they hosted for fairies
and elves and Santa and the Easter Bunny.

I doubt that you'd be capable of tying a knot.

Did you get an answer to your question about mice? I cleaned my garage today
and suddenly saw one trying to climb up our brick into my bathroom window. I
want to kill them and deter them. I can't bait them. Do you have any new
ideas? Please email me - . I'm terrified of them.

I used the flour and cement mixture, then I just started using the cement
alone. To attract the rats I buy a bag of gum drops. I mash them up and run a
little water over them to make them sticky. I put them in a little container
and pour the cement over them. The rats love them. So far the rats/mice seem
to run outside. I've picked up dead ones outside. They don't seem to hide in
the walls or wherever. Dogs and cats are not attracted to this, and shouldn't
be harmed.-cj
