    Try this repeating mouse trap from a 5 gallon bucket, coat hangar and paper plate. Pretty darn clever if you ask me.

    Sounds like you need a couple barn cats...That's if you don't mind buying a bag of food for them every now and then...The neighbors have a few roaming around, and they keep us pretty rodent-free

    Similar to the pop can method forgot to mention the pb. I cant use water because it freezes and never had any problems with the rv antifreeze stinking even durring the Sumner and i dont routinely empty the traps

    according to my heard of cats... no, there is no reasonable upper limit of mice and lizards that can be caught on a farm.

    they ran out of small birds and squirrels inside the fencline... and the crows are too smart to be predated.. so the mice suffer the brunt of the inmate-cat-convict halfway house that I run.... Snakes sure are sore about it.. so are the fox, possum and raccoons.... not much forage for them so they have mostly moved on ( GREAT! )

    my feed and chicken losses drastically dropped after getting cats in the barn. feed losses stopped within 2 weeks... chicken losses due to predation stopped after about 6m after the rodent population subsided, thus making my area less good hunting ground. worked better than I expected... for the price of a 16# bag of cat chow a month.. I am saving $$$ on feed and animal losses. As a side benefit.. whenever I go out and get on a tractor inthe morning, the soft padded seat has been pre-warmed by the cats that love to sleep on my tractors. ( also.. the wire chewing on my tractors by mice.. coincidentally stopped at the same time! )

    You just need to get the neighbours to own cats ,thats where my rodent deterent comes from. I think he does the whole neighbourhood . The first month, I lived here, I spent trying to keep him out but noticed the mouse problem starting so I made cat entrance for him, no more mice

    I have to make a couple of them. I think that's a good idea.

    Last year I just threw a couple handfuls of sunflower seeds in a 5 gallon bucket of water with a ramp and caught a lot of mice. They will slow down in time, but there will always be stragglers, so enjoy the time spent slaughtering those little varmints.

    Is there a limit? My experience says no.
