Homemade Mouse Traps that Work
There is a saying which I recently heard from one of my friend is
The only thing that scares me in the tech area is that it moves so fast that you have to be ready to invest in 20 things. Because if you just invest in one, next week, somebody has a better mousetrap, and you get taken to the cleaners.
This saying reminds me of one thing if I am inventing a mouse trap I should think what others can invent or going to invent. It’s so tough you know as everyone’s thinking power is different from each other and anyone can think much superior than you. So you should have to think about the MUCH kind of a thing. Though very tough word I am using. Don’t be afraid about. Now let’s come to the point why I have shown you this saying. Those who are seeing my article are in search of making home made mouse traps. I am giving you such ideas about how to make homemade mouse traps.
Plastic bottle as a trap:
Plastic bottle is effective for trapping a mouse. Take a Plastic bottle that is about 2 liter. Cut its 1/3 position measuring from top. Then gently overturn the top spurt into the base. Secure it with gems clip or tape or glue. Use bait such as peanut butter or bacon or even vanilla on the funnel, so it may drop to the base. Grease the funnel with butter or cooking oil so the mouse gets no chance to escape. Now replace your home made trap in those areas where mouse problem is seen. When it gets into the bottle to have a bite of bacon or to lick the peanut butter it can go only to the bottom as the funnel is greased with oily object.
I used in this case a toilet paper tube. You know it the most common thing in your home. You can fold one side as it can help to place the thing. The shape would be like the tunnel where car or vehicles run through. In this process you can use a bench or table. Chose those places where you little enemy is seen. Now put the tube on the table. It’ll stay there ¼ of its proportion. It means ¾ of the tube will be hanging off the table.
Now put a heavyweight and high bucket where the tube is hanging. Apply food inside your tunnel. You can use peanut butter, crackers or bacon. Now wait for the mouse to get into the tunnel. Don’t observe or watch over it. Your little enemy can sense your presence if you are watching over it. Leave the trap overnight. If you make a successful trap than that filthy animal will get into the trap. And when it enter into your tunnel than the part which is hanging over will get much of a heavy weight will immediately fall into the bucket which is set straight under the tube. If you want you can grease the bucket with oil. In this way you can trap a mouse without killing it.
