Do you actually find dead mice? šŸ˜µ
No, but that's what the garlic (and the boxes) smell like straight off the truck.

Mice are a common problem in grocery stores, thankfully the one I work at doesn't have a rat problem like some others in the area. We always have a few stragglers when the river floods, and in the fall when the weather starts to get cold, but we also have a pest control company who knows their stuff. We know how they get in, it's just a matter of trapping them and disposal. The sad thing is most of the time? They come in the front doors, same as the customers!

Ask for egg boxes. They are a good size, big but not so big you can't carry it easily, and the boxes are sturdy and have handles.
those are what Mom will get if she needs boxes for her quilting materials. :) they eventually end up being used for weed barrier/smothering if we have a garden we are redoing or such. :)
