    I started watching your channel over a year ago looking for humane kill traps to use in my nyc apartment and loved your content ever since. Luckily I have one less roommate and a great mouser of a cat now so I have no rodents now! (That I’m aware of at least!)

    It's a cool low profile mouse trap, good for putting in tight spaces. Very efficient and I like the design a lot.

    These videos used to be much better before youtube censorship got in the way. Which is so unfair because the uploader is so darn hard working and charismatic.

    We have a mouse plague in town at the moment. The last several months the conditions in eastern Australia have been perfect with cool wet weather, and vigorous grass growth with plenty of seed available. Ive been killing mice with my lawn mower its that bad! Right now Im enjoying the smell of dead mouse because one died inside the wall where I cant reach it. Ive given up trapping mice, there are just too many.

    Here is another video idea. Do a video on ancient Rome and their love for eating door mice, how they prepared them, how they seasoned them (stuffed, with spices inside and baked), how they sold them in street meat booths like our Mall food courts. There is enough easily Googleable online material for a 10 minute video. USlikes cannot possibly have an issue with facts of history. You could even take a moment to cover their spices and where they cane from and garum, the fish sauce, made of raw fish and not just for seasoning fish. It was used to season a lot, including baked mouse. ;-)
