A Poison-Free Homemade Mouse Trap for Your Farm

This is an illustration of a low-tech simple mouse trap from an old publication. It shows a homemade mechanical device for trapping mice without using poison.

To make it, a wood dowel is covered with peanut butter and a wooden ramp enables a mouse to go to the peanut butter, falling into the bucket of water. According to the old publication with diagram, it is a mouse catcher “that really works”. The writer says, “I caught two rats and four mice the first night out."

1) Farm cats can also do the job.
2) You can add some oil to the water to keep mosquitos from breeding in it.
