Catch a Mouse! (Humanely, Of Course)

Simple enough. You will need: 1 toilet paper tube, a dab of peanut butter, and a bucket or trash can.

Instructions illustrated by Chris Glass.

Catch a Mouse! (Humanely, Of Course)

  1. Get a toilet paper tube and crease two lines to form a flat sided tunnel.
  2. Put a treat on one end of the tube: A cracker and dab of peanut butter works great.
  3. Get a tall (at least 20 inches) bucket. A trash can works well.
  4. Balance the tube precariously on the edge of a table or counter with the treat hanging directly over the tall sided receptacle.
  5. The mouse will scurry to the treat (they like tunnels) and fall into the trap.
