I have a mouse in the garden and need to get rid of it before it bites the kids or.dogs. needless to say I can't use poison bait or a spring trap. Where can I get one of those old.school traps that has a one-way in and no way out?
Get a cat :?:

That works- I caught a small mouse with that the other day....just get a tall bucket from a plastic shop. They cant tip it. Unless you have dassies and not a rat/mouse. :D

Otherwise the lethal way is to get a mousetrap from a local agrimark or builders...' They also work...use peanut butter as bait.

We have the occasional rat in the yard and use a dedicated box which only allows rats & mice to get in with poison inside. They gobble it up only to wander off and die somewhere else. This box (obtainable from any hardware store) doesn't allow kids, dogs, birds, cats or anything else to get in.

Or do you object to bumping them off?
And then an Owl finds the carcass and eats it and dies of poisoning - not a cool idea at all. I know there's poison available that won't hurt birds etc and if you're going to use this method make 100% sure you use only that type of poison

I was in the garden yesterday round 12 and saw movement , looked and saw a monster of a brown rat scaling the wall. excl the tail it must have been atleast 200mm long. Today a saw a little field mouse aswell....seems we are infested with the damn rodents.

I think my water trap thing might not work for these monsters, I will have to get good old fassioned spring traps and put them on the wall where these things transit between the yards.

I wonder how deep fried rat taste :wink:

I saw the "offending" creatures last night, 2 small "veld muise" and I dont want to kill these really, so I built this trap. The lever at the end will have some peanut butter on it and when the mouse walks on it the pivot will make it fall into the bucket. Thenb I can take it to a feld where it will most likely be caught by an owl anyway :lol:

If I get the massive rat however it will be "wacked" :roll:

Will test it out tonight 8-[
