    A dutch friend made a simple trap just using a flat piece of wood & a plastic paint bucket. Put the bait on a flat stick over the bucket & balanced the stick on the ledge. Mouse went out the stick for the bait, stick & mouse fell into bucket with some water in the bottom & drowned. He got them all.

    I looked at a lot of traps, I guess wood ones are special. I saw an ad with a big iron one from the late 30's and Bing Crosby photo was on it! Guess he made money from mouse traps!

    Maybe Bing was the lure? I know, uncalled for.
