Subject: RE: BS: Non-violent anti-mouse techniques?
Here's a trap idea from a book. I've never tried it.

Stretch and fix/tape something like brown paper over a bucket/pail. Cut a cross slit in the middle of the paper. Put bait on one of the points of the slit, and some sort of access for your victim to get onto the paper.

If you feel particularly irritated, you could put 4" of water in the bucket.

Alternatively, arrange a see-saw/teeter-totter over the bucket. One that can't be used as a ladder to climb out again.
