Hi TomV4, Thanks for your comment. This idea is to make a bait station like the one pictured. Saves money by making one out of a recycled container .

I was trying to be funny in a subtle way.

But I get what you're doing there. I am all for repurposed stuff.

At first glance, I thought the photo was suggesting catching a rodent in a take-out food container ... which seemed redundant.
