Crows eat mouse caught in glue trap
The mouse eating the plants in the terrace garden was caught in the glue trap immediately, and it appeared to have died in the next morning itself. The dead animal was emmitting a strong odour and a large number of flies wanted to feast on it, however they were also trapped.
On the next day, the rat trap was in the same place, however the dead rat appeared to have disappeared
The crows may have attacked and eaten the deat rat as food
However there are a large number of dead flies still on the rat trap. The odour emitted had also largely subsided
It appears that glue traps are an effective way of catching rats and mouse, especially in a small area.
