  Chocolate mousetraps prove deadly
Updated 17 July 2003, 20.54
Scientists have invented a chocolate mousetrap
You've heard of chocolate mice, but what about mice-killing chocolate?

Scientists have invented a chocolate mousetrap to catch the little creatures.

It's well known that mice like the smell of cheese, but tests have shown they love chocolate even more.

No cocoa

Mice prefer chocolate to cheese!
But the mice don't even get to nibble the sweet stuff.

The traps just smell of chocolate essence - there's no actual cocoa for the mice.

Staff at the company which invented the sweet-tasting trap reckon it will change the mouse-catching business.
