How To Make A No-Kill Mouse Trap To Get Rid Of Mice Without Harm

Nobody wants a pesky mouse hanging around the house, but it’s always preferable to find a humane way to get rid of them.

Gone are the days of leaving a piece of cheese in a mouse trap, especially now that Chris Notap has taken to YouTube to teach you how to create a contraption that will get rid of mice without harming them.

This isn’t a one time use kind of machine here, either. You can reuse it as often as you need to, and all it takes to make it is a hanger, a two liter soda bottle, some washers and screws and a two by four block of wood.

As you can see, having the soda bottle balanced just so, a mouse will be able to enter, but will be unable to escape. Until you take the little guy outside and set him free, that is.
