As the mice plague rages on, people are having to come up with fresh solutions to try and tackle the rodent problem.
Some stick to basic cheese in a trap, while others have pet cats to tackle the job.
But for East Orange couple Lyn and John McDonell, a little more thought goes into it than that.

"My husband uses sundried tomatoes that we dried out ages ago and peanut butter," Mrs McDonell said.
"It has to be something they have to chew because if it's something they have to eat easily, they can escape the trap, but if it's something they have to chew it keeps them on longer."
For the past two months, the mice have mainly been contained to the ceiling, with none getting into the house as of yet.
But now Mrs McDonell is starting to notice a lot more outside.
"I've even looked outside and had them sitting on the mat staring at me through the kitchen door," she added.
"The main thing is we climb up in the ceiling and set about six mouse traps and my husband climbs up every morning and every afternoon and takes out the damn mice and fixes up the trap again.
"Now he's had to start putting them outside as well, under the barbecue and at the back shed.
"So far we've killed over 60 and probably four or five a day we're getting now."
But they are far from the only ones experiencing the rodent infestation.
Kara Weatherall and her family moved from Sydney to Cumnock about a month ago and said it was a massive shock.
"We read stories about it before we moved and we'd seen things on the news about how the farmers are struggling, but it was worse than we expected," she said.
"We live in town so we just thought it was the farmers who were experiencing it."
Mrs Weatherall said over a two-day span this week, they have caught more than 50 of the rodents thanks to a DIY bucket trap.
"My husband has screwed two holes in either side and threaded a wire coat hanger through and then he's threaded two coke cans," she said.
"He's smeared peanut butter on the coke cans and then they walk up a little ramp that he made out of wood and walk onto the cans. Then obviously they spin and fall into the bucket which is filled with water."
But it's not just their house where they are spotting the furry critters.
"We've never had mice in a house that we've lived in before and obviously we moved out west and were really shocked by the plague," she added.
"We walk to the park and we just see them running around in daylight. I'd never see a mouse around during the day, it's just crazy."
Minister for Agriculture Adam Marshall recently announced a new series of mice management workshops to be held to assist farmers still battling the mice plague across parts of the state, including one in Cumnock.
