    The pack rat is trying to steal your trap!!! Those rodents know you to well Shawn. They have developed a collective mind. The infestation is after you and your family. Don't underestimate the enemy.

    That's a pretty interesting trigger system there, it would work better than the Victor traps with the piece of wire that holds the kill bar, it wouldn't be hard to make a trap like this using a standard Victor type mouse/rat trap.

    I have only had one rat issue at my house. After a trail cam, some hand to hand combats, failed traps and misses, I finally got him. I was one more night away from becoming an obsessive deranged lunatic if I didn’t kill it. I now love watching them die and it’s probably somthing I should seek help for because it was a hate for a creature I’d never experienced before.

    But do mice normally SLAM! themselves onto the trap like you did with the stuffed animal? Id like to see if a very gentle, natural like mouse touched all that metal. Would it be as "ez" as it says?

    Perhaps some weights underneath the wooden trap holder would prevent even the Mightiest Mouse from taking your valuable traps. And a latching mechanism for the top of the wooden box for easy set up.

    Imagine if aliens came to earth from outer space and had devices set up to monitor us and we had no idea they were even there, but went about our business as normal so that the aliens experienced an emotion we can't comprehend. That is how these cameras are to these animals and MM is like the aliens.

    Your videos have lost a large part of their appeal when we can't see the traps in action. Engineering channels are a plenty so learning how they are made and designed is a set of videos easily found under different categories. But what was great was seeing how they actually work. I know you are trying to avoid pissing off youtube, but so many other channels still show the traps in action. They usually have a disclaimer about sensitive viewers and stating that these are classified as pests so perfectly legal to "dispatch" (as you call it). You were always my go to channel, but over the past few months I find I turn your videos off after you introduce the trap. No more watching to the end or up votes. They've hit a point where instead of watching it as soon as you post it, it may sit in my queue 1-3 weeks before I decide to watch it, because I know I'll just hit stop one third of the way into the video.

    Unbelievable that a small sensitive minority controls the majority because they can't handle seeing a mouse caught in a mouse trap. So they induce censorship, lack of freedom, reduction of rights/privileges, etc.

    Hey Shawn! What would you think of doing a "trap your way up the food chain" series? Like you said, use a mouse as bait to catch a rat. Then use the rat as bait to catch a _____, and so on and so on.
