A guy went to Canada on a hunting trip. He came back and described this mouse trap. I made one using a 5 gallon bucket, a small metal rod, peanut butter, two pop cans, scrap wood for a walk board and a gallon of used antifreeze. I put peanut butter on the walk board and pop cans.


Before anyone gets upset, its locked up in a building where kids, dogs and cats can't get to.

I think in Canada they may have used beer cans and a coat hanger.

Check my trap and found 8 mice sleeping in the antifreeze.

The Canadian version uses beer cans as we pour beer in the pail instead of antifreeze. Rather have the little b&ggers die happy.

A 5 gallon bucket half full of water and a ramp will do the same thing. Float some dog food on the water. Rats and mice will smell the dog food, climb up the ramp to get to it, jump into the water, and because they cannot climb back up, they just go for a permanent swim.

You'd have to use something a bit stronger than beer in the winter unless you just want to have a skating party ready for the little critters. Vodka? Canadian Club? (;>))

A Seal walks into a bar and the bartender says 'What'll you have?

Seal says, 'Anything but a Canadian Club'!!

Does it work for rats too?

I think I may have to give it a try.

YES! It works for rats, but check it at least once per day, 'cause the rats sink, and you might think it isn't working until you dump it out 4 days later, and then you'll know it is working.

Perhaps you could deep fry them and feed your cat fried mice.

My neighbor says his chickens like mice. Wouldn't think chickens are meat eaters.

Chickens love mice and will play "keepaway" with them for hours! Wish my brother was easily amused like that. Then my parents would"nt have wanted me to be more like him.
