I've used peanut butter to 'glue' seeds to a ramp up and into the bucket. I used to be the champion gerbil and hamster 'trapper' in my school, recovering the lost classroom pets. A bunch of crumpled news paper to cushion their fall and give them nesting material until morning. Not so important with mice and rats you don't return to cages.

Look up the 5 gallon bucket trap on youtube. There are lots of different ways to make it, but they all seem to end up with dead mice. I use peanut butter coated over a gatorade bottle. It's lasted for many months. The other traps in my RV haven't been touched (glue, snap, etc.). The bucket has caught several mice and I haven't found droppings or anything to indicate there are any more.

Peanut butter is nice because it doesn't dry out quickly due to the oils in it.
