Well the little critters just licked the peanut butter off of the Victor traps and they didn't set off. I have refilled them with dried cherries and really squashed the bait into the teeth of the metal trip pedal. That should work. (no cheese on hand)
In the meantime, I almost stepped on a dead one in the back bedroom as only its tail stuck out under the floor rug. I think it got into the d-con refillable bait station that I had put on the linen closet shelf and then went out to find water.
