After getting a new and improved cat in the household we found that said cat had a distinct talent for catching live mice outdoors, only to bring them indoor for release. We decided to reverse the process but ran into a snag, catching the durned thing. I decided to think like a mouse and came up with the following simple solution.
Step 1: Items needed
To make the trap you need three empty toilet rolls and duct tape. In case you feel the need for lasers, you can certainly tape one to the finished trap.
Step 2: Assembly
Tape the three rolls together end-to-end to make a long tube. Close off one end as shown in the pictures. Secure the end with extra tape to prevent the mouse from escaping.
