I have a 2L coke bottle that I made into a fairly effective trap. I whacked
the top off at the top end of the straight-sided part. Inverting the top, I
fastened it back in with three of those "Goof Plugs" sold for drip
irrigation systems, in punched holes. [For your *brichardi* you may need to
cut the neck back to make the hole bigger, first, but maybe not.]

Baited with a few blackworms, and laid on its side, it should do the trick
fairly quickly.
