Let me start out by clarifying the conflict between "Humane" and "Mouse Zapper".
I have a major mouse pest problem where they eat all my dog and parrot food every night - and many of them .
I tried purchasing several mouse traps which all face different drawbacks:
1. The sticky pad - the mice glue themselves and for hours struggle to get free exhausting themselves to death and die of hunger.
2. The pipe trap - locks them in and then they eventually suffocate after hours - Very bad!
3. The box trap - sometimes cuts their tails when it shuts and what do I do with them then?
4. The standard smack trap - fast death (50% of the time) but only gets one mouse .
So .. I devised this multi-mouse quick death trap using an Arduino which zaps them in the head for 2 sec killing them instantly with no pain (same as done on larger animals human eat ).
Step 1: How it works....
Here is the back side (end) of the mouse path .. When it reaches the bate it is sensed by an IR sensor which the Arduino senses and activates the zapper
