Can anyone explain where Bait Boxes Go...!!!!!!!!!!![:(][:(]

Every year as the weather changes for the worse i sort out my bait boxes and give them all a good wash and sort them out.

This time last year i ended up with 45 different bait boxes and 40 lids. (not bad only 5 lids missing)

Well i've just finished sorting and cleaning them this time around and surprise surprise i now only have 21 Boxes but have 48 Lids and to make things worse this year i've bought 3 new partitioned boxes and can only find 2 of them but still got the 3 lids.

It's the same every year i end up with either more Lids or Boxes but never the same amount.[:(][:(]

Does anybody else suffer with the Vanishing Bait Box syndrome or is it just me and the JINX.[}:)][}:)]

Malc you sound as if you have a similar problem as me except my bait boxes are masters of disguise over the coarse of a season they can transform themselves(mainly thanks to some help from my wife) into: plants pot holders, cat bowls, anything but there intended use.So have a look around the house you never know where the little blighters might be

They have a life all of their own.
Leave Two 2pt boxes in a dark carryall and before you know it there will be countless 2pt boxes,4-5 1pt boxes and at least a couple of pt ones!
They are the plastic equivalent of Rabbits!
