DIY Mouse-Control Attempt in the Attic of a House in Atlanta

Mouse poison and droppings in a cardboard bait tray with insulation on it in the attic of a house in Atlanta

Failed DIY mouse control in Atlanta

This homeowner tried to solve a mouse problem in their Atlanta home himself by using mouse poison. All the poison has been eaten, but he still has mice in the attic. Not only that, but they started to build a nest in the bait tray.

Most likely, what happened was that the mice who ate the poison did in fact die, but new mice got in and took their place. That's what happens when you try to do mouse control without sealing up the house to prevent mice from getting in.

We don't use mouse poisons, by the way. This was strictly a DIY mouse-control attempt.
