How Long Should Poison Take To Work?

Recommended Posts

I caught a mouse in my live trap yesterday morning and it had been having a big ol'e chew on a bait block as it's poops were blue so I know it ate it. Thinking it was not long for the world anyway I let it go in the green rubbish bin and figured it would be dead pretty quickly. Well imagine my shock when just now I went to the bin and there was a little mousy face peering up at me :sad: Are my mice supermice resistant to tjhe poison or does it take a long time to work? The little guy looks perfectly health :bump:

Hmm, in that case anymore I catch in the live trap that haven't succumbed to the poison yet might go in a disposable tub in the freezer for half an hour to 'end' things quickly and more humanely.

Yeah I can't do that :( The freezer is pretty quick because of how small they are, they go into like a coma within a minute or two and then they just stop breathing

There is also a bucket of water too. Actually there is a trick with a bucket of water for catching mice.... i cant remember what it is :( .... but there is something you put in the water and they jump right in and drown themselves.

yes it would if you put it in the aviary. I remember a member saying once that s/he had a bucket of water outside the aviary and they would find drowned mice in it all the time :(

It seems to take a few days, i put baits out on saturday and found they had eaten all the bait on Monday but i did not find a dead mouse until today at the front of the aviary.

that is ODD, do a google on the net of the product and active ingredents, I know you will find the answer that way or if there is a phone number to call to ask questions.
