I thought I had been careful, but mice can get through very small holes and were not put off by my the waxmoth deterrent. They have eaten some of the supers I stored wet back to the rib!!! Guess I need to wash them before I use them???

Poly it would not hurt to just rinse them in luke warm water,bee's most likely won't like the smell of mouse urine.

Sweetums,i can only just remember them mice,your thinking of Tom and Jerry.

It pays to keep the traps going and smoked sausage is pretty effective.
