Make a Simple Humane Mouse Trap with a Soda Bottle

Trevor English

Mice can be annoying pests, and there are many ways to take care of the little rodents using inhumane methods, but it can be hard to get rid of them if you don't want to hurt them. If you use a little engineering, you can design a humane mouse trap out of an empty 2-liter bottle and some wire. The video above takes you through all of the steps, but it essentially allows the mouse in, but tilts down blocking the mouse from getting out. This is actually a pretty ingenious way to catch mice if you don't want to deal with mouse traps or poison, but would you rather deal with live mice or dead ones?
