In the video we have a competition between two similar style mouse traps that come from a very different political history. It is amazing what people can do when they have limited resources.

    I can't figure out why, but I leave dead mice out for wild animals and they just walk right on by. I have raccoons, opossum, skunks, coyotes and red fox. The only thing that eats them are maggots.

    Had a rat getting under the hood of my car. Kept putting ONE BITE RAT POISON on top of the engine the rat kept eating it and would not die. Went and bought a have a hart live catch trap and baited it with fried chicken scraps, caught him the same night. Looks like the poison wasn't doing him anything at all!

    I'm interested in catching a mouse in my house. These "clunky" mouse traps I've seen on your channel lately, have no applicability in the rooms of my house. Who cares if you catch mice in your barn, where there seems to be an unlimited population to draw upon? Could you show some mouse traps that might be used in an urban environment? Also, what is the purpose of the portion of the video where you show the dead mice being eaten? What is the point of that? Seems creepy to me. and has no relevance to your them of catching mice.

    I really like the Bender style mousetrap. It's got an almost 100% success rate. I would love a well constructed modern day one for my mom as she has been having a mouse issue. Every time she gets things in order getting rid of them something in the building (ie. construction, neighbors, seasonal issues) brings in a new brood, where you see and catch offspring but not the mother. Plus my mom is "changing" getting to the point she really doesn't to kill them. If she has to it has be a "humane" death. But really enjoying these vintage rodent traps.

    4:49 when you were dumping out the mice on the "outdoor dining room table" I thought to myself looking at the greenish water coming out, do you flavor your water the mice are dunked into with any yummy spices or just some good ol' fashioned beef stock? You know, to give them a little extra flavor? P=

Zumindest wird dort die Echtheit der Doku bestätigt. Also für mich ist es jedenfalls gut vorstellbar, daß die DDR-Führung den Westen auf diese Weise infiltrieren wollte. Erfolg hätten sie ja gehabt, wenn's geplant war.
