A tip that really works for us is to glue a piece of dog food to the plate which makes it virtually impossible for them to remove without trapping them. We had a bad mouse infestation in our greenhouse a year ago, caught fourteen of them!!! Good luck, it's painful to see any ranunculus bite it.
McKenzie, I'd love that!
Once things get rolling you should come up.
I want to tour your farm and buy flowers from you!
Oh, good thinking! I think that may be my problem since we really loaded them with almond butter. The next round I'll try your approach. Thanks!
I had the same problem last year. I just put the smallest amount of peanut butter on the trap so they have to really touch the plate to get any off and when they do the trap gets them. Hope you get them all! : )
