I've had luck catching mice by placing an empty tuna can in a garbage can sans liner under my sink. They climb in and can't get out. This idea smells better.
The idea is simple - an ordinary pint glass is placed upside down with a bread stick and spring propping it up. Once the mouse eats through the stick, the glass comes down and bingo - you've got yourself a mouse!
Simple & humane. But will it work? I'm not sure, but it's a cute idea. I'd test it out but I no longer (knock on wood) have any mice around to test it on.
Build it yourself with these materials:
- Pint Glass
- Bread Stick
