    How to catch a mouse without a mousetrap



    SeattlePI.com

    I had a little friend visit my apartment the other week, and for a while there I was ready to make peace with him and co-exist. But after I cleaned up the place and ordered pizza one night, and it crawled up the side of my chair onto the sleeve of my shirt, I knew it was time to bid farewell.

    Here's how I caught the critter:

    Get a toilet paper tube and crease two lines to form a flat sided tunnel.

    Put a treat on one end of the tube: A cracker and dab of peanut butter works great.

    Get a tall (at least 20 inches) bucket. A trash can works well.

    Balance the tube precariously on the edge of a table or counter with the treat hanging directly over the tall sided receptacle.

    The mouse will scurry to the treat (they like tunnels) and fall into the trap.
    Set the fella loose at least a mile away from your abode.

    Postnote: It worked within the hour.

    I've heard of a trap similar to this except water was put in the bucket.

    Or use the Dick Cheney model of this mousetrap and shoot the mouse in the face when he is in the bucket!
