i live in a very remote area… we have no stores and get everything flown into us. Anyways the other night when we heard mice as we were about to go to sleep we made a quick trap. We stuck a bucket with a few inches of water in the bottom. we smeared some peanut butter around the inside lip of the bucket and gave it a little ramp w/ a piece of lumber (nothing fancy at all really but it worked!!). One night and 8 dead and gone so far.
