One weekend last year had 4 in the bucket. Evidentially the sight of 3 pals spread eagle in the water was not enough to keep #4 for going for a spin on the can of fate.

Adding antifreeze is a good one for when I am gone for two weeks at a time but have a black lab with access to the garage who not only loves peanut butter....

Will be setting a couple of electric, "old Sparky" traps later today just in case the little rodents are not dissuaded by my peppermint approach. The wife has objections to allowing them to sink or swim. However, I really like the electric approach. Claims are 100 rodents per battery

I have used Old Sparky in the basement and performance is excellent. Crawl in for bait, contact both plates and zap! I see a tail sticking out and know there is one less mouse on the planet. Open, empty carcass and wait for the next one to walk the green mile. $20 well spent👌🏼

I will post a pic if I am successful or if Mickey chooses peanut butter over life

Victor, the snap trap people, make them. They gotta have some sick dudes working there and scheming up new mouse dispatching devices. Though, I suspect that we could find some potential employees here.

A question for you mouse experts - does setting traps with bait such as peanut butter ultimately attract the little bastards? Wondering if a deterrent of some kind, whether a stinky spray or mothballs etc. might be the better way to go.

How destructive can those little guys be? One (1) mouse cost me close to 50K with my '72 2002. Started noticing both doors not shutting properly and upon further inspection realised the frame rails were rusting through. Cut them open and found both sides packed with dog kibble which of course held water. At this point with the body off it was a no brainier for full restoration. I never even caught the little bastard. I now have an electric trap in the garage (which works great BTW)

Yes, it's more humane to kill them instantly than slowly.

Spend the $20 per year for snap traps.

I saw a mouse in my basement and set a snap trap with peanut butter. The trap had such a hair trigger, I could barely set it down without tripping it, but a few days later, I found the trap licked clean, but it didnít trip. Set traps with peanut butter twice more, again licked clean but didnít trip.

Iím wondering what could have done that without tripping the trap?

My car is up on a lift; I hope thatís buying me some protection from the rodents.

He never caught one mouse in the garage. Maybe life was too good.

People who haven't had cats before don't realize the scale at which they destroy rodents. My one averages a kill a day that I see, if not more.

Are these inside or outside cats...that's impressive stuff.

Our neighbor has a cat that hangs around outside, I love seeing it prowl around my garage

Agreed. Might as well use the most effective & efficient means to round them up and wipe them out. I wasted way too much time & effort trying to ďfeedĒ the chipmunks when they first became a problem. Landscape contractor mentioned the bucket party and I was convinced right away

Cats are the best traps, especially if you let them out of the house daily.
We go away too often to own a cat, but if I could, I would.

I've used poison as well....still do. They die, then smell.
I've used snap traps also...who hasn't? You've got to monitor them, reset them, set out a bunch, then empty them if they work.
I like the idea of the electric ones but again, one shot deals.

I'm not too concerned about HOW they die, or whether they're in my garage or basement. Either way, they have to go. Once they're in your house, it's all out war and you won't win until you find the hole. BTDT.

Rodents are rodents. Gotta go one way or the other.
