How do you get a Bobcat to pee in a bottle? That's probably why it's so expensive.

You have to wonder who makes the big bucks--The guy holding the bottle or they guy holding the Bobcat ? :rolling:

You will save a lot of time and frustration by inserting a cathiter.

I have found a lot of mouse nests made of fabric softener sheets. Don't think that one is all that effective.

Sorry to hear that. I have found you need a new box every year and remove all of the old sheets as they do loose scent. Maybe Minnesota mice are not real bright, but it worked for me.

Maybe our mice just like to be soft and fluffy. I know that if you find a car with dirt dobbers in it there will be no mice so when they start building a nest around my shop I leave them alone. They are pesky because the will fill in every available hole with dirt - including every bolt hole on an engine.

I made this one.

I have caught about 12 mice in the house with this since September. In the spring, it will be buried in the garden to catch the Voles who ate my Beets and Peanuts.

Here is a youtube of someone else's on action.

As a long time student of dying rodents, I strongly suggest adding a few drops of liquid dish detergent to the water in a pail trap. Mice and other rodents are bearers of lice, ticks and the worst of all for humans and our pets, fleas. These parasites can sense the death of a rodent and quite readily jump a great distance off the floating still living body plenty clear of a bucket. Soapy water quickly stops the flea as the rodent hits the water and bobbing around.

One certain way of fighting the menace of any government sponsored genetically engineered pandemic that may be in our future.
