Cheap Mouse Trap

Recommended Posts

I have had a problem with mice coming into my breeding room so i have traps set but i am not catching them. i have this tall plastic square container that i use for putting seed into the bird containers. On the weekend i forgot to put it back into my big seed bin and left it on the floor of the room and the next morning i found 2 mice in the bottom of the container. They had got in but could not climb back out. Last night i decided to put some cheese in the container and leave it out again and see if i could catch some more. I went to my breeding room this morning and found 4 mice in the container. Yeah. Works better than a trap, i can catch more than one at a time.

The container has a lid on it that slides shut so i fill the container with water and shut the lid. After they had drowned i buried the bodies.

I did that once....some of the smarter ones find the most minute airpocket and stay alive breathing air from a miniscule area at the top of the water. :D

l have used the bucket method before and it works great.

Glad you have been able to catch some of those pesky mice.

They most likely would have jumped in from from something above or next to the container :)
