Hi, light on, radio blaring baits taken by rodents and nothing in the trap. Just have to rely on the baits.

I had mice in both sheds a few weeks ago - first time in years.
Shot over to the supermarket and grabbed a couple of plastic traps, way too complicated for what they have to do and absolutely bloody useless. :evil:
The baits were taken from both and the stupid traps didn't bat an eyelid...
The good old simple wooden traps of old used to nearly take off my finger when I was setting them at times, but they never failed to deliver!!!
Anyway back to the supermarket, bought some wax baits and laid one in each shed.
Haven't sighted one of the little buggers since. :D

I use them the big cheese blue ones they are supposed to be safe for pets and wildlife but take more time than the red ones.

I have great success with these traps from Bunnings, especially with peanut paste as bait. These are the most simple traps that I have used for a while.

I use things called CarCoons, They are essentially big inflated plastic bags, they have a ground sheet which the car sits on, it has a zipper around the bottom to connect the bottom to the clear plastic top bag, it has two computer fans which keep it inflated with filtered air.....it keeps the mice and dirt out 100%.....you can pull a car after 12 months and it is as clean as the day you put it in.....best thing you could buy for this problem.

Thanks, I've heard of them but not sure how convenient one would be as I'm still working on the car.
