I've never heard of sticky traps, other than the long, hanging fly ones. That sounds horrible.
Neither of the photos of live traps looks like our live mouse one. It's about the size of a one inch thick book. I'm gonna go google to see if I can find a photo.
Marking the wee things is a good idea. The OH doesn't want mice making nests in the upholstery of the car he stores in the garage (the one that doesn't run while the ones we use sit out in the snow and sun
) It would be interesting to see how many, if any, get trapped over and over.
It looks like this.
