While traveling I caught an intruder in my 80 and ended up killing them.

    nope, laboratory mice can do 3 feet easily - wild mice are even wilder

    believe me, I know mice - I have only done research on them since, like, 1982 :doh:

    laboratory mice, however, are a poor copy of wild mice - thus my statement that your are indeed underestimating mice - wild mice will best every single laboratory mouse in physical strength and endurance, as well as life smarts in their environments

    fun tidbit: when a lab mouse is offered a running wheel in the cage, they may very well run close to 6 miles a night VOLUNTARILY :eek: - well, not all of them, there are some slackers in any given group just as well, and if you give them a high fat diet . . .

    Ever the optimist I bought two of the Victor better-mousetrap-electrocution chambers. They arrived yesterday and I got my first capital punishment overnight :skull:

    One trap by the wood pile, one behind the shed. The shed trap had a perspired field mouse in it. Interestingly the field mouse must have been too small to trigger the flashing red light after the kill.

    I like that I can safely toss the carcass out into my arroyo without spreading poison in the food chain.

    Now if it could only electrocute rattlesnakes going after a dead mouse . . .

    Victor recommends peanut butter but I don't have any.

    I just poked a twistie through a small piece of cheddar cheese. The rats and mice around here seem to eat anything. I could probably put Palo Verde seeds into it and they would come . . . thats what they leave all over my engine compartments (along with their products of digestion)!
