How can I get rid of a mice infestation without poisoning my dogs?

I've tried your "sticky traps", and they work well. I keep a close eye on them, and I quickly kill the mice they catch. This is a very old house, though, and there are just too many mice. I don't like using poisons, but I think I'll have to do so until the mouse population isn't so large. They're reproducing faster than I can catch them. I have a silly Chi who will, if he can, chew on dead mice. Is there a mouse poison that would kill the mice, but not harm the Chi if he finds, and chews on a dead mouse? Bugs aren't a problem because I use DE. What the DE doesn't get, the "sticky traps" do.


Terad3 Blox are recommended for situations where secondary poisoning may be a concern.  A small dog would have to actually eat, not just chew on, several mice (think 20 or more) to have any type of reaction. Terad3 Blox should be used in tamper resistant bait stations such as the Protecta Mouse Bait Stations to reduce the risk of non-target animals accessing the bait. You can place the stations around the outside perimeter of your home to help get rid of the mice before they move indoors.
