"Thank you for the advice! As mice traps, we use the Victor Electronic. Very efficient, but must be baited in regular basis. The death is quick and rather humane if I can say so.  http://www.victorpest.com/victor-electronic-mouse-trap-bm2524s-3"

It seems that they use the insulation channels inside the logs to move around.Any recommendation for a sealant that cannot be chewed by mice?Thanks!See More
