For some individuals, mice are lovely pets, but for most of us, they are annoying, and we don’t want them in our homes at any cost.
While these cute and tiny-looking species have all the superpowers to cause nuisance and mess in our homes. Additionally, they carry harmful parasites and bacteria that are not safe for humans.
The most effective mousetrap is a bucket trap that captures them in a bucket. This method looks a bit odd and unusual, but it is effective than the other traps. Furthermore, the method is suitable for both indoor and outdoor uses. You can catch dozens of rodents for many months at a time without spending extra bucks on maintenance. No other mousetrap is as economical as the bucket mouse trap.
Below we will look at how bucket mouse traps works and how to use them efficiently.
How it works
Using a bucket mouse trap is simple. There is a ramp for the mouse in this trap, and when the mouse walks on the ramps, it will sell the bait applied to a container, and as the mice will land on it, the container will spin, and the next morning, you'll found a drowned mouse or perhaps a bucket full of mouse.
Another useful feature of this trap is that it will get reset automatically after each usage. Just place the trap once, and it will handle the rest.
Furthermore, the bucket mouse traps are perfect for outdoor locations and indoor uses. This allows you to catch and release the mouse, or you can kill them.
To use them as killing mouse traps, you can fill the bucket with soapy water. This will ensure that when the mice fall into the bucket, they get killed. You can also mix caustic or poisonous chemicals in the water to kill the mouse. No matter how you use it, the method is simple and hassle-free. Moreover, this method is also useful if you have a severe rat problem on your property as it can catch several rats at a time.
However, in non-killing versions, keep the bucket empty as it will keep the mouse alive but trapped until you release them.
Additionally, you can also apply a deep layer of vegetable oil or any other oil on the ramp. This will attract the rats more, and upon contacting the oil, it will become impossible for them to jump out of the bucket.
Remember that if several mice are caught at once, they may kill each other, so you must check and empty the buckets daily to avoid the mess.
