:My family has always had success with a home-made live trap consisting of a
:kitchen chair, an old towel, a five-gallon plastic bucket, a 12-inch ruler,
:and some peanut butter. Tie the towel to the back of the chair to provide a
:ladder for the mouse. Put the bucket on the floor by the chair. Smear the
:peanut butter on the end of the ruler, and balance it on the chair and the
:bucket to make a bridge, such that when the mouse walks out to the end of
:the ruler to eat the peanut butter, the ruler falls in the bucket. Note that
:the ruler has to be shorter than the bucket is tall, or the mouse will just
:climb out. Place in whatever room the mouse hangs out in, before you go to
:bed at night. Within 2-3 days, I bet you have the mouse. Carry bucket at
:least a block away before releasing the mouse, or he will beat you home. You
:did block up the usual outside entry points already, right?
That's really a hoot, and it sounds like a sure winner.
