Hi Mortis I am doing that and it works but I use peanut butter and when the berries mature they don't like my bait any more. I had a friend tell me to try bacon grease also peanut butter gets mold on it in a few days.Them mice can really get you disgusted not only they eat your berries when I dug some of my 15 year old roots this year they had a fair amount of them ate to. But if ginseng was easy to grow it would not be worth what it is.
There are several m ouse traps that I have seen folks use. one of them includes a bucket and a \"walk the plank\" approach to get the mice to fall in and drown. I plan on using this next spring and see if i can controll the pesky rodents I have.
