Here is a link to dozens of traps on YouTube.

Looks to me like you can make a trap out of what you may have on hand.

Sorry, DE will not work on mice. There should be a video somewhere on Permies. Anyone have a link?

Lice can be controlled with tea tree essential oil mixed in coconut oil. Coconut oil can kill the lice and tea tree can kill the eggs.

I guess I didn't describe it properly. I am using the vodka bottle for a large funnel to fill the bulb.

I considered the bellows, but it seemed a little delicate for my use. I also don't use the small funnel (if mine came with one). the cap screws into the bulb and I discovered the a vodka bottle screws right in and is much bigger funnel. just had to cut off the bottom. Also, in a pinch, a condiment bottle (old restaurant style) works just fine.

How to make your own oxygen absorbers. https://healthrangerreport.com/prep-with-mike-how-to-make-your-own-oxygen-absorbers  8 minute audio. Yes Mike is selling stuff, but the information is good.

Short version is 00 steel wool, salt, and something to to put it in to keep the rust from transferring to what you are storing. I used an old sock. The salt causes the steel wool to rust easier and attracts moisture which uses up the 02 and water vapor to make rust. The reaction also can make a little heat. I've heard that it is similar to what they use in hand warmers.
