Just curious. I trapped two mice in my basement after finding several bars of soap had been “nibbled.”

The were drawn to the soap by the smell. The nibbled because they are curious. If they would have really wanted it…you would have nothing but small crumbles left. Mice nibble on about anything that smells yummy to them.
