Simple 'No-Kill' Mouse Trap
most mice are too smart for this kind of trap, your scent would be all over that tp roll and that is why he wont use it...mice are far smarter than you give them credit for
as a matter of fact, we have two or three field mice in our home, and i do in fact feed them and give them water. they NEVER chew on our wires or anything else...there has NEVER been any damages, all we have ever seen is a few tiny droppings....i see no reason to kill them, but we are making a different trap than the one shown, it is a no kill/no harm trap, out of a soda bottle and a clothes hanger...then we will drive out to a field down the road and release them...we wouldnt even try to catch them normally, but we are getting ready to move and i dont want the managers to exterminate them...i may even keep them if i can catch them..as i already have a menagerie, one or two more would be welcome.
who said they were released where they were not wanted? ever hear of field mice? they were here before you were....putting your home where it is, probably chased them from THEIR home...ever think of that?
I had hampsters growing up. That's some cold hearted people out there to "drown"anything.,Poison, etc. , Panic & struggle & suffering comes with tha.. Yea they chew stuff up They are just trying to survive Are they attack mice? N,, So don't be cruel
No starvation but if u ever come close to drowning you understand a little bit what this would be like why dont you use the traps that snap the little critters neck these traps r cheap and quick and b working since forever
Listen what you do is put the toilet paper roll over a bucket or a trash can something tall enough so that they cant jump out then when u catch the cute bugger u drive a few miles down in the country someplace where there is no homes ( you dont want to save em just for someone else to kill it) and just let it out some people put water n the bottom so the mouse drowns but to me that is cruel and if i had to recommend a trap that kills it would for sure recommend the one that snaps there necks its quick most of the time
I don't think this works with NYC mice, they're too smart for it. The mouse in my apartment just took one look down that toilet paper tube and got the hell off the counter.
I don't think this works with NYC mice. They're too smart for it and have seen too much. The mouse in my apartment just took one look down that toilet paper tube and got the hell out of there. He knew it was a setup. Now I think I hear him laughing at me :(
**UPDATE: The mouse just pushed the tube off the counter into the trash can and got away with the food.
I just put watter in thee bucket no starvation there
So i am also ussing this method but little different i live in aa city so i can't release it so you caan aalso just put water in the bucket it aalso helps against the jumping
