The first couple of days we used this we caught mice (4 nights, 2 mice each of the first 3 nights and then 1 mouse the 4th night) but since then the mice are getting in, eating the cracker left there and then leaving .... somehow! I have weighted down the top and covered the air vents with tape so they must be leaving the same way they got in. Do you have any suggestions? PLACEMENT is NOT THE PROBLEM as I did catch mice first few nights in same place.
Thank you for your comments! Weighing the cover is the first suggestion we would offer and generally the only way mice would be able to escape a live trap. If you have stations with a clear lid, there have been a few instances where particularly persistent mice have been able to chew through the clear lid. The only other possibility we have heard is that if the bait/food were placed just inside the trap door, then perhaps a mouse could start to enter the trap and reach the bait without walking off the ramp, before the one-way door closes completely.
Using glue traps inside the trap is always a good idea to help insure that mice cannot escape the traps.
Please let us know if we can further assist you!
