    Rat/Mouse Trap Mod

    why not drill holes and put screws pointing up like a Sheetrock screw.And if it came to survival/ Laws are out the window, you do what you have to to live with a stock market crash and all that. I doubt the game warden is going to be looking for poachers if that is the problem and if it is no one is going to buy the hides so I'd dry them out and save them you might need them later.And your not going to have Google to download how to's to do stuff either.

  • Setting A Mouse Trap | The Best Mouse Trap | Humane Mouse Traps | Glue Mouse Traps | The Best Mouse Trap Baits

    Peanut butter is the best bait for Mice they Love it over cheese.Use the chunky type and put it in the cylinder of the bait part from the sides, the more the mouse works to get it out the more the traps going to get his little butt, always remove the trap either empty and reuse or empty. I've seen live mice eat dead one's in half. Its gross I know but they will do that.

    Borric Acid..... Borax https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boric_acidIt will not kill on contact, but it will wipe out the roaches over time. We had them in an apartment 30 years ago, the place was filled with them government housing apartment complex, we tried everything, after I put this down they would not come back. Right now we live by a wooded park some times they come into the house in the spring when they are really active, those that enter do not exit, when I laid about 3k square foot of hardwood floors I put boric acid under the edges behind the baseboards.

You'll want to vacume up the dead bug parts you can see some people with asthma can get sick from breathing the airborne dust from the decomposing body parts.Roche's are bad news and anyone can get them no matter how clean you are, and my house is clean.I do not spread incidences outside my home, because it kills the good bugs too.We still get ants and Terro takes care of them about the same way. Its borax in a sugar liquid form carpenter ants love to get into they eat it and return to the colony with it and it kills all of them. if you wanted to kill the mouse beside trapping it you could add borax or boric acid powder, it would stir it up and breath it in. I'd rather end the mouses life because they will just come right back in the house if you don't. And they mate like mad.http://www.history.com/topics/black-deathA good reason not to let Mice go.

    Sliding Barnwood Door

    If you like you could have done a hand hammered look and used a brass color finish on the metal. the contrast would look great. or even a rust look.This leaves a lot of ideas to tweek it for a slighty different look.

    I'll agree kits for these cost too much.I'd like to see more detail how the rollers system work, and how you put that part together. you showed everything else closely except that part of it.Perhaps there would be sevral ways to do it and some with less metal then you used. one you do not have to attach a u bracket to the wall to keep the door in place sliding it. That part looks like a trip hazard or somthing the kids could get hurt on. But i'll compliment you on your effort's it looks nice.A few refinements couldn't hurt any project.
