What Attracts Mice?

Answer

According to pest control company, Orkin, mice are not attracted to cheese as it has been taught in the past. Mice actually “prefer to consume grains, fruits and seeds…they prefer foods that are higher in carbohydrates. Chocolate may be more effective bait for mice than cheese. However, domestic mice are indiscriminate and will consume any food source available to them.”
