When I first found this one, I gave it no mind. I then decided to investigate it a little further. At first, it looks as if there is just a bowl upside down held up by a curved piece of wood. Looking closely, you can see there is bait on the kết thúc of the piece of wood.

This DIY mouse trap gets an A+ for simplicity. Although I haven"t used it yet, it"s obvious it would work and therefore gets the award for operability. The concept is the mouse scurries under the bowl lớn get the bait while knocking the stick loose, ultimately causing the bowl khổng lồ fall onto the mouse. You don"t over up with a dead mouse, but you"ve completed a big part of the task.

Hopefully, each type of trap mentioned here helps address any mouse problem you may have & cut down on the mouse activity from the first night you mix traps.
