Why do I have a mouse in a trap near where I have placed Fresh Cab®?
Fresh Cab® works by its aroma. Rodents can enter an enclosed area before they realize that they can’t tolerate the smell. If this area has a baited trap, it’s likely that a rodent will try to consume food on their way back outside.
Rodents are built for survival, and will cache (store up) food if they are already full. It’s also likely that a rodent stumbled across the trap on their way in-or-out if the trap was not baited, since they can only see a few inches.
