Redneck Mouse Trap

5 gal bucket with a gal of RV antifreeze dumped in the bottom, pop bottle with a welding rod thru it and some peanut butter on the middle of the bottle.

Lean a board up against the side and it works all year without checking it and no smell.


  1. Don't even need anti-freeze if you use a metal bucket.
    You can leave the bucket without tending it for weeks or months, the biggest and strongest mouse will eat the weaker ones.
    It is not that humane, but you don't have to put up with the grey goo that the drowned mice turn into.

    That is a pretty big mouse, could it be a rat?
    If you use this method for rats a metal 5 gallon pail is usually tall enough so the rat cannot climb out.
