A Simple, No Kill, Mouse Trap

A Simple, No Kill, Mouse Trap

By Debug Pest Control - 11/26/13

I just saw my first mouse of the year making its way into my shed. I don't mind them in the shed, but they can never take my home! 

If you do see or hear mice in your home this winter, try this simple mouse trap idea found on reddit.


  1. Bucket
  2. Spoon & Knife
  3. Peanut Butter


  1. Dab a little peanut butter on the handles of silverware
  2. Balance silverware on countertop
  3. Place bucket underneath silverware
  4. Wait a night
  5. Wake up
  6. Take mice and displace them in a forest or field far away from your house and other homes

The mice will try to climb out to the end of the spoon to feast on the peanut butter, but will fall into the bucket with the spoon.
