I love the bottle ones. They are simple and non-violent solutions :)

It's important to remember that every one of those traps is lethal if you don't check them at least once every other day. Mice don't last long without water.

And if you want to avoid cannibalistic horrors when cleaning out the trap, put something edible (such as a blob of peanut butter) in there as well.

The most brutally efficient (in number caught without reloading ) trap I have ever seen was a variant of the simple grey bin version at the end. This trap consisted of a medium sized wooden dowel bisecting the top, held in place by two U-shaped brackets which allowed the wooden dowel to rotate. In the middle of the dowel / centre of the bin – peanut butter was used as the bait, thick blob all the way around. Mice walk out, get to the peanut butter, the dowel rolls, mice drop into bin. No need to reset. This trap was astonishingly effective. 5-7 per night for 3 nights running. It was an old summer house. And yes, extra peanuts in the bottom to avoid cannibalism so the critters could be taken well away and set free the next morning.

Nice constructions, got to remember this for next fall when it gets cooler outside and one or two set up shop in my house again. I also like the last one the best.

I liked the non-lethal way of dealing with these rodents. I know if you actually have a rat infestation problem you're laughing at the non-lethal part. For other people however who do not have issues with rats(for example) prefer not to see lethal solutions in a video. So thanks for that!

Only downside is if you leave them half an hour they will gnaw through the plastic and get out anyway. Glass is better #4 the last one also works lethal if you half fill the bucket with water and drown them. .:squirrel::squirrel:
