Make A No-Kill Mouse Trap With A Soft Drink Bottle

Video: If you find yourself with an uninvited mouse guest and want a humane solution to catch the critter, you can easily make a non-lethal trap with just a soft drink bottle mounted on a pivot.

DIY tinkerer Chris Notap shows us how it’s done on YouTube. It’s a very clever solution in its simplicity, and it’s also infinitely reusable for those recurring rodent visits. You’ll notice from his instructions that it’s particularly important you correctly place the pivot so that the bottle’s mouth is just barely raised but tilts once the mouse goes in. Where you release the critter is up to you.
