Unfortunately, some of us are faced with a problem like mice. We'll figure out how a mousetrap is made with our own hands, which will help get rid of these pests once and for all.
So, there are several options for mousetrapping. Let's start in order. What can I do with my own hands?
Consider several types of popular traps.
Mousetrap, made with his own hands out of the box and thistles
Such a mousetrap will have a little non-standardprinciple of operation. 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 somebox. 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 while driving). 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 sprinkle the mousetrap with some odorous oil to discourage the odor of a person. It can be sunflower oil, preferably unrefined, or ordinary alcohol.
The trap for mice, made by hand 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 plasticand a rope. The bottle should be cut off the neck in such a way that the mouse can get inside. At the cut-off point, make two holes to insert the rope and tie it. The second end of the rope must be tied to something heavy, which will be located on the table. In the bottle, place some 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 thatcan 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.
