Make a Win-Win Soda Bottle Mousetrap
If you find yourself with an uninvited mouse guest and want a humane solution to catch the critters, you can easily make a non-lethal trap simply by placing a soda bottle on the hinge.
DIY master Chris Notup shows us how it’s done onYouTube . It’s a very clever solution in its simplicity, and it can also be endlessly reused for repetitive rodent visits. You will notice from his instructions that it is especially important to correctly position the hinge so that the neck of the bottle rises slightly, but tilts as soon as the mouse enters. Where you release the creature is up to you.
