Peanut butter works better in mouse traps than cheese.

Mice cannot actually eat cheese because it speeds their heart up and kills them. So i am going to say yes due to the fact that one kills while the other doesn't. Hope this helps!

Yes. The glucose level makes peanut butter much more appealing to them.

New studies have determined that mice actually prefer sweets. And no, cheese will not kill a mouse, it just doesn't care for it as much as previously believed.

They do like peanut butter but the idea behind using PB instead of cheese is for the trap to be more likely to catch the mouse if the mouse has to lick the PB off the trip mechanism instead of just pluck off the cheese. Also, PB stays tempting for a longer time than cheese, which tends to try out pretty quickly.

I once had a mouse that got very fat eating all the peanut butter off a trap I had to bait multiple times. Somehow, he figured out how to trip it without getting caught and then take his time to lick off all the PB. Finally got him, but it took a while.
