Introduction: Homemade Electric Fence for Mice

Had no luck in getting rid of mice using the common pest control methods. I tried conventional spring loaded traps, poison, electronic sound generating devices and an electronic/electrical trap that instantly kills the mouse when contact is made with two electrodes. In an attempt to find where the mice were getting into the living area I adapted the electronic/mechanical trap to form an electric fence. I made lots of video using different cameras. After a number of days (actually mostly nights) of taping I narrowed down the entry area. The mice were getting in through a hole around the cold water pipe in the kitchen. The video shows how I made the fence and some of the video that I took.

These electronic traps are basic batteries and a capacitor that storage the power and discharge it in one go.
