I also have an old farm house and it sets empty a good share of the winter. I have three of the 5 gallon mouse traps. So far this year I have only caught five. Last year was a total of 13 and the year previous 17. Think I'm thinning the herd!

Google 5 gallon mouse trap and you will find several videos on making them.

The most humane is to use automotive antifreeze but then you have a problem disposing of the dead mice so other animals don't get hurt.

I have used tap water but if left setting too long they will get to stinking!

Currently I am using RV Antifreeze. Buy it off season and you can get it pretty cheap.

My nephew made a modified bucket. He installed the axle further down in the bucket, drilled a mouse sized hole in the side and then put the top back on. He uses this under he trailer house and other critters do not get into it.

Good Luck
