    The same thing can be done by simply leaning a board against a bucket with a little peanut butter smeared onto the bucket wall about half way up and vasaline smeared in the first inch of the bucket lip.

    That way the bucket could be reusesd for other things, if need be.

    Nice, it would work for wheel-chair mice too.

    I use this method with great success. Altho I don't cut a hole in the side of the bucket, I run a coathanger across the top througha cop can smeared with peanut butter. Then I just find a board long enough to go from the floor to the top of the 5-gallon pail at an angle.

    I get about 15 mice per month in the fall.

    I like the idea of it though! I might try it for the shed I have my feed bins in. I'm not aware of any mice...but that doesnt' mean they aren't around! [​IMG]
