Have you guys ever heard of an adirondack mouse trap?

This is what it looks like.

Image

It's a bucket half full of water, a beer can with a wire run through it and a little peanut butter on top of the can along with a piece of wood for the mouse to run up.

Image

Just place it where you want to get the mice. And the result, the mouse steps on the beer can and it rolls!

Image

This may seem like a pain but they seem to shy away from mouse traps anymore.

I've seen mouse traps along that line before, haven't seen that one in particular, but some similar. Looks like that one would be a lot easier to make than others.

I tried that once with a pop bottle and didn't catch a thing. Maybe my mice are all alcoholics too ? :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I use it in my shed, not too effective outside.

One I read about in a back a couple weeks ago, is that you take a bucket, and use some thin plastic to cover it, and put some peanuts,peanut butter, etc on top, and cut an X on the thin plastic, and the mice are supoosed to fall in the x, and it should reset itself (In theory)
