    Squirrels and chipmunks and mice.

    But I have a better fitting name for my trap, The Pool of Death.

    Has anyone successfully caught anything with one yet? If so what?

    I do the trap a little different but I use it for mice. I use a wire and soda can with some peanut butter. The mouse runs up the board gets on the can and either slips off or the can rotates causing the mouse to fall into the water. I call it the murder bucket. And they work. One winter in an old old farmhouse I used to own I would catch 8-10 a night. Man that house sucked.
