    RUclip has multiple copies of JFK getting his head blown off by a psychopath, but Shawn Woods can't demonstrate tools and machines designed to control pest populations.

    I've seen a version of this trap that uses cornmeal on top of the water, nothing else.
    The cornmeal is the bait and quicksand at the same time.

  • none urbusiness
    none urbusiness 18 days ago

    So it works but maybe not efficiently for a barn you said was filled with mice. Maybe because the bait wasn't being kept more to the center of the trap and so mice could even pick out some food and then too leery to try going all the way in the bucket to get the rest. If the food was at the center where they couldn't possibly reach it from the rim of the bucket, that may insight their eagerness to get at it

  • Dana Horton

    Would using a piece of small pvc pipe to make a peanut butter bait spot in the center of the water trap with hot glue to the hold the pipe at the bottom of the bucket and use an end cap to place the peanut butter on above the perlite level do the trick? It would make baiting a bit easier and mice like peanut butter. Since perlite is whiteish the mouse should be the none wiser. Also making a standard setting marks for the water level and the perlite level so the bait sits above the perlite line like a floor and it will help with reloading water and perlite. Would that work?

    You should spray the bucket above the waterline with cooking spray.

  • LongBinh70
    LongBinh70 Month ago

    I'm surprised nobody else mentioned this yet. Your water level was too high. The mice could just reach down and grab a sunflower seed, losing any reason to jump down on the perlite! Had the level been an inch lower you would have caught a lot more.

    Consider trying again with less water in the bucket and a few leaves in there. I think they were super suspicious because they hung on to the top lip while they tested the (lack of) firmness of the perlite. It the water is lower they might be forced to commit and jump: especially if there's some nice-smelling peanut butter in there tempting them. Great channel..

    vermiculite is a similar substance that you could use (also found in the garden section), but what about Bean Bag filler - Styrofoam/polystyrene balls.

    I have seen over 100 people shot to death in police activity videos on RUclip. They do not get censored. A little mouse (disease carrying pests) falling in a bucket gets people's channels deleted? It's obvious what and who RUclip cares about, or rather doesn't care about. I weep for the future.

    Hi Shawn. I think you filled the bucket too high with water. If it was a few inches lower, the mice would have no choice but to jump in, instead of "testing" the surface.

  • The Scoop!
    The Scoop! 4 months ago

    I think it would have worked better if you didn't have the water level low so that they just walked into it instead of hanging from the edge.

    Not allowed to show on RUclip? Tons of videos show these traps in action 🧐

  • B F

    Two points:
    1. It looks like the level of the water is important. Some mice held on with their back feet and tested the Perlite with their front feet. Then they pulled back, probably because they realized it was not a solid surface. Lowering the water level to where they have to let go of the top might increase the catch rate. Also you need the water level lower for the rat.
    2. Would be interesting to have this trap, the "walk the plank" and a roller trap set up side by side and see which catches more mice.

    About an inch and a half or two inches less water would be more effective. I have done this with a 18 gallon trash can with a foot or so of water, over a weekend I caught 7 rats and dozens of mice in a feed barn.
