I never really sat and watched the trap so don't really know how many it missed but after my dad passed and his house was falling in I had one set in a couple different rooms and I caught more mice than I ever could have with just poison or single traps. That setup looks like it would work really wellI've watched a lot of bucket mouse trap videos, and those don't work as good as you may think. They miss a lot of mice.

And that is why I won't get oneAs stated already the ultrasonics are junk, had a barn full and still had mice galore until I got a neutered cat or 3. I actually feed them well as imho they don’t hunt for the food aspect as much as instinct. They ended the mouse problem and went on to every other critter in the area. There ain’t a rabbit anywhere on my place anymore lol.
I bought some of the original "walk the plank" mouse traps for our deer camp. We didn't get down there for maybe a month or two during the off season, so we needed something that reset itself and would keep them from dying on beds, etc. I would fill it with very salted water and a skim of cooking oil during the summer months, and RV antifreeze in the winter. If you aren't familiar with them, look them up. Anyway, the mice fall in the bucket, the oil smothers them and they drown. The salty water keeps them "pickled" for while so they don't start stinking too fast. The RV antifreeze actually does a better job picking them but can release a strange odor after a long while if it's not cleared of the dead critters. Either one is better than plain water. If you bait them in a vehicle, they would probably take the bait even faster than a large room. It might be better to put them around the vehicles if they are in a garage to keep the population to a minimum .. All I know is the mouse population went from crazy to nothing in that drafty old cabin in less than a month.Figured I would come on here and ask around. How do you deal with mice getting in vehicles and equipment.
I just ordered some of those ultrasonic units that I can run extension cords from shop but I also have vehicles and equipment in barns. Just had one die inside landrover door panel because of The poison I put inside and I’m not too happy about it
These vehicles sit for multiple weeks without me checking them so glue traps would be a pain also if they eat the poison and die inside that’s gonna stink everything up. I just discovered a little SOBs I’ve got in to the nicest vehicle I own now doesn’t have a single crumb or food and they’ve been eating up the poison cube I put in there. I like to keep my vehicles under the roof but I can’t have this mice problem
I use the original "walk the plank" fall traps in our deer cabin, and they worked perfectly. You do have to set them up right and make it enticing for them. We got our mouse problem controlled in no time. It stayed pretty much mouse free as long as we went to the cabin ever so often and scooped out the dead mice and re-baited the trap. Before that, they had taken over, because it was surrounded by dense woods and high underbrush.I've watched a lot of bucket mouse trap videos, and those don't work as good as you may think.
