Unfortunately, some of us are faced with a problem like mice. We will understand how a mousetrap is made by oneself, which will help get rid of these pests once and for all.
So, there are several options for the mouse. Let's start in order. What can I do with my own hands?
Consider several types of popular traps.
A mousetrap, made with his own hands out of a box and burdock
Such a mousetrap will have a slightly non-standard operating principle. The main part here will be burdock (in another way it can be called an even bigger burdock), or rather, its barbed part in the form of balls. A mouse that touches a burdock at least a little bit, can not move quickly. It will be almost impossible to get rid of burdock. And the plant itself, which will be on the mouse, will cling to various objects. The rodent can not find food for himself and will most likely die of hunger.
To make it, you will need some kind of box. It will need to do a special hole, which will be enough to allow the mouse to pass. The box should be filled with burdock, but not very much, you need to leave enough free space to move the mouse (the main thing is that it clings to the burdock when moving). Inside, you still need to put the bait. It can serve as peanut butter, cheese, nuts, slices of pizza and so on. Be sure to spray the mousetrap with some odorous oil to discourage the odor peculiar to a person. It can be sunflower oil, preferably unrefined, or ordinary alcohol.
A trap for mice, made with his own hands from a box with a burdock, is ready. Of course, this is a somewhat cumbersome structure, but very effective.
The next type is a mousetrap, made with his own hands from a plastic bottle (gravitational).
To produce a bottle of plastic and a rope. The bottle should be cut off the neck in such a way that the mouse can get inside. At the cut point, make two holes to insert the rope and tie it. The second end of the rope must be tied to something heavy that will be located on the table. In the bottle, place a bait, for example, cheese or peanut butter. Put the bottle on the table in such a way that the part where the bait lies lies over the air. How does this mousetrap work? The mouse will feel the bait, climb onto the table, then into the bottle, get to the bait and break the balance. The design will fall off the table and hang on the rope. Pay attention to the rope, when you make a trap, its length should be such that the mousetrap does not sink to the floor, otherwise the mouse can get out.
Another option is a mousetrap, made with your own hands from a bucket.
Here, use a rotating drum that can be made from a can (aluminum or tin). The volume of the can should be 0.33 liters. Through the jar you need to pass a rod of steel, which will be inserted into the bucket. Put the bait on the wall of the jar, and put the jar on the rod in such a way that it rotates freely. Pour water into the bucket.
How will the device work? The mouse smells the bait, jumps on the jar, and as it rotates, the rodent will lose its balance and fall into the water. The main thing, calculate the correct distance from the can to the bucket wall, so that the mouse could fall.
Here are a few types of mousetraps that you can use to get rid of pests.
