I set one of these last night.

I heard a squeaking sound coming from the canaries aviary as I walked past it last nigh and when. I shone my torch towards the noise, I saw a house mouse, so I quickly set one of these in there.

I've just this minute come back from a trip out into the countryside in my van, there were no less than five of the little beggars in the trap. I wasn't sure how I could humanely kill all five of them when I opened the lid, so I dropped them off  for a country themed holiday in the middle of nowhere. Needless to say, the trap has been reset in the same place.

I have a similar trap Bodger........I just open it in one of those horse feeding tubs. Then just get hold (wearing gloves if you are squeamish) and humanely dispatch.
