Growing up, when there were signs of a mouse in the house, my mom would sit in the kitchen, after everyone went to bed, waiting with a brown paper bag and peanut butter. Once the little guy made an appearance, she'd run around and try to scoop him up into said bag. Call her crazy, but it usually worked. Perhaps it might have been a little easier if she had one of these…
According to Roger Arquer, the designer:
Mouse in a Pint is a beer glass upside down with a breadstick attached to a spring. The spring keeps the glass elevated so the mouse can get in. Once mouse nibbles the breadstick, this breaks and the glass collapses, keeping the mouse inside.
Looks like something you can easily recreate at home with a glass, spring and some food. Wonder if it works? Do you have any tips for capturing mice?
