    In my experience a mouse or rat will eat their way out of a cardboard box very quickly.

    In india, we get ready made mouse traps. Now the mice have become so intelligent that they nibble wirhout activating the trigger wire. Now we use lever type entrance door traps. When rats come for the bait, he enters through this trap door. Then the trap door closes by counter weight when rat leaves the trap door to reach the bait.

    This just for information.
