I've seen mice go under a shut garage door - a garage door with a good bottom rubber seal over a good concrete surface 

 

also seen mice crawl up the side of a brick exterior wall and go through a tiny mortar joint into the above overhang

 

 

Yep, that's why it's nearly pointless to try to keep them out. Just gotta find a way to either deter them from entering or kill 'em.

Are there different levels of dead?

Kinda dead.  RARE

Regular dead.  MEDIUM RARE

Very dead. MEDIUM

Wicked dead. MEDIUM WELL

 


And last but not least, the level of well done... like my wife’s family likes their steaks!  It’s already dead y’all, we’re just warming it up a bit!

This is what happens when you let a kid poke the trap with a toothpick... at lunch time!  :ROTF:

Wicked dead! I have 4 traps in my garage, and since fall, when I set bought and set them, I have caught 15 or so mice! One was reakin havoc up in my 73 wiring area, behind the dash!

We put a Bucket Of Death in the outdoor workshop a month or two ago and have not caught one single solitary mouse in the damn thing.

But the trap on the floor beside it has been mildly productive...

Mrs K just saw one run across the living room.   No felines in this house, so I'll have to break out the traps.

Last count I got eight outside cats and I also feed birds so that pretty much throws out the welcome mat for mice. 

Early this winter I had mice get in my warehouse. I try to keep the cats out of there as they tend to  use the gravel floor as their personal littler box. Not fun laying on the gravel doing horse business then find out you were laying in it! :confusion-questionmarks:

Caught three of them in the victors  and locked my best mouser in there with a loaded cat box and she caught two more. I have also been feeding the cats their nightly ration of cat chow by the camper to hopefully put the fear of God in the mice.

Humor detector is working again! Hooray!:text-thankyouyellow:

I've used a slightly different design of the bucket of death that works fine with water in the bottom of it.  Caught many a mouse in it.  However, in the winter the water freezes so I decided to put some used anti-freeze in there... and haven't caught a single mouse since.  Anti-freeze seems to be a good mouse repellent!!

 

OR, maybe it's the skulk of Red Foxes that have taken up residence on a neighboring wooded area... see them every night out hunting.

 

OH!  and there was a BALD EAGLE munching on a Bambi carcass that I pulled out of the road and hid from SWMBO out in that area.  Two days in a row he visited!  between him and the black headed vultures there are only bones to dispose of now.

We do the 5 gallon bucket trap but just sprinkle bird feed sunflower seeds to cover the water surface. It appears solid to them like the bucket 1/2 full of seed so they just hop right in. No spinning devices or trap doors or anything but a ramp. Works great for mice and chipmunks.

Anti freeze works good in the death bucket as the sweetness helps attract them. Also pets tho so be careful,  it in itself is a deadly poison. Don't feed mice drowned in it to the foxes. If it's a clean kill foxes love mice.
