The weather turned cooler and the mice moved inside. I am fighting to evict them.

This was one failed skirmish. The idea was that the mouse would climb through the cardboard tube to reach the peanut butter at the end, thus upsetting the balance of the tube and depositing the mouse in the container below.

I set up three traps.

In the morning, at the first site, the tube had fallen from the counter, but it had landed outside of the container. No mice were injured in the fall.

At site number two, the mouse had rolled the tube back onto the counter and had eaten the peanut butter and the cardboard at the end.

Site number three was undisturbed. Apparently the mouse was no longer hungry.

The fight continues.
