Subject: NANFA-- mouse in my outdoor tub

I found a mouse drowned in one of my outdoor tubs.


There actually was an old-fashioned type of mouse trap that used a pail of
water with dried corn floating in it, that sounds like what you
inadvertently set up. A ramp was put up to the top of the pail, which mice
would climb and see the corn, but not the water's surface. They would jump
in thinking that they could easily jump back out. Oops! I can testify
from my youth, that it works.
