My daughter has a pair of ball-bearing mouse traps in her barn, and they are quite effective.Yesterday I relocated the second red squirrel. Hopefully he will find her, but I noticed a nice barn close to where I let them go.
The mice seemed to have calmed down. I've lost count but it's about 10 so far. I've seen the bucket trap before. The snap traps have been more reliable which just makes it quick. I pulled the rear seat out and found a pile of jimmies that would fill a quart container. There was a nest under there that was about a 1/3 of the seat. It looked like it was made from a wool blanket and was from the past. I've looked in the vent system, behind the rear seat and behind the rear side panels and have not found anything new. Time to work on the smell which is a combination of moth balls and mice pee.
The positive thing was the back seat looks like no one ever sat in it and the mice have me looking at the Manta everyday.
A ball-bearing mouse trap is otherwise known as a male cat...
