Humane Mouse Trap – How to Make a Humane Mouse Trap

Live Mouse Trap

A piece of an old bicycle tire and a glass fruit jar are the only materials required for making this trap.
Push one end of the tire into the hole, making sure that there is a space left at the end so that the mice can get in.
Then bend the other end down into a fruit jar or other glass jar. Bait may be placed in the jar if desired, although this is not necessary.
