I capture rats and mice in live traps and then set them free in a public
field down the street from my house. Also, all the cracks and crevices to my
house are sealed up some they are unable to get inside.

Rodents_rats and mice you need to use a vitamin d based bait. Not much needs
to be consumed. Rats
and mice are very tongue oriented, they like licking films. They die from
heart failure v_ d
baits. Young or old. Get the pellets for rats. They have locking stations
use these too and smear
the insides with peanut butter, that will get them into the stations and
into the mood for more. 
When they die it is in the open so you can pick them up. They seek the light
near the end. Also
they don't get bait shy as they do on heavy poisons. Read an abstract on how
a vitamin d bait did
not work in AU but folks. They more than likely screwed it up. Sometimes
these academics are being
financed by a products competitors.
So you have to follow the money if something especially goes against
personal experience.
