+1 ROFL

I wondered how well that can would fair outside. Every cat, dog, deer, bear, moose in a 10 miles radius was headed to your house. Cut a hole in the bucket about 6 inches from the top, and suspend the can just below that, and put the ramp to that hole. Then put the lid on it. So it is enclosed.

You do have to check them frequently and replace them when the contents is consumed. It takes a few weeks to get ahead of them but it seems that once I did they were gone for the season. Now is the time to start getting after them as the cold brings them inside. A good rule of thumb to follow is if you see 1 you more than likely have 10. If you delay killing them they will double in number every month.

But if you poison them don't they go off and die inside some wall or obscure place to stink up your house?

No. If the poison bait stations are outside of your home you will find them feet from the stations......outside. They don't go inside. Common misconception. There are far more that go inside when using traps. One person can't ever get ahead of a mouse situation using traps. This is simple math after looking at their reproduction cycles. One female time how many litters of how many offspring per year = LOTS. Enjoy yourselves.

Not in my experience with the modern bait traps. In theory they go in search of water outside of the baited area and die there.

My '68 Mustang got a lot of them in the years it was stored in a garage. Nasty. I put bait out, but not often enough. Like the buckets with the small bags of poison I get at Tractor Supply. When I was getting ready to put the car back on the road I went through a a bucket and a half before the absorption rate declined. Only found a few carcasses in the garage and car. They find elsewhere to go die. I used a few bags to thin the chipmunk herd around the house as well. I left the tupperware type bucket on my porch sealed up and something overnight, I am guessing a skunk, chewed into it to get the goods. It was impressive. A racoon would have gotten it all. The mice did not do the car any good but I needed new carpet anyway. The bike, is a different thing altogether. Mothballs and bait.

Anything that's covered with fur or feathers that thinks of small rodents as dinner, or toys.

Especially if it pisses off a well-known wanking douchebaggy twatwaffling mob called PETA.

PETA...

An organization with the opportunity to do so much good but instead they are so out of touch and so extreme, that all they do is piss people off or just make them laugh. Just a bunch of ...

Snap traps with peanut butter or without. Wish I could get some live & make friends with the hawks in the backyard. Great vid BTW!
