Mice!

I went out to ride last evening after work. I was greeted with my usual hellos and went back to my lockers to start pulling out my stuff. (At my barn we have lockers to keep all of our belongings. They are about 3 x 7 x 3 deep, and yes I still need two of them!) Anyway, I pulled out my grooming box, fly spray, show sheen, and cookies. I went back for my second trip to get my tack. The saddle pad I wanted was second from the bottom in my stack (I match the color of my shirt with the color of my saddle pads when I ride) . It was easier for me to take the entire stack out and get it that way. Well, when I pulled them out, I saw at least 7 or 8 mice start to panic ( I kid you not) A couple of them dropped out from my saddle pads when I pulled them out so they were everywhere trying to hide!
I immediately started pulling everything of value out of there, like my field boots, my helmet (which there was a mouse hiding under when I grabbed it) One even went into my rubber muck books that are the size of sneakers, which for some reason I laughed about. So today I will be looking for the best mouse poison. I would use traps, but there are too many of them to kill that way, any suggestions?
At least I got to see where they were coming from. In the back corner of my locker there is a 1 x 5 piece of wood that they were all running into.

Do not use sticky traps.

Other than that, go to your local feed store and pick which shape you prefer your rodent poison to come in.
