I just saw a mouse feeding off my trash half an hour ago and I made this trap and put it in the garage.
Is this a good mouse trap /diy/? Should i put more chemical in the water? Anything wrong?
so your planning to chemical burn it's eyes and mouth and wait for it to succumb to exhaustion and drown.
i don't know if that's worse or better than sticking it to a pad and using dehydration
You can get classic mouse traps for under a dollar. I wouldn't even go trough my stuff to find a magnet for saving that money.
How is the mouse who works mostly of its sense of smell and luck, going to find the peanut butter if it's masked by the overwhelming smell of bleach? You probably wasted as much money on wasted bleach as a set up cheap springboard traps. You're also assuming the mouse is going to fall in.
Dont be a faggot, buy a trap like >>925811 or a cage trap, or make one with a pot and a wallnut if you want to catch it alive.
You turn the pot upside down, and put a wallnut under the edge, so when the mouse comes and wants to nibble on the wallnut it has to do so from under the pot and pushes the wallnut out and traps itself.
Worked with the mouse i had at home like 10 years or more ago. Not sure if your american mice are more clever.
Trying to use drowning as a mouse trap may not work so well.

Just get some traps. They are like 10 bucks a dozen. Or better yet, keep your trash in a trash can. Simple solutions are the best.
Take a bottle, cut off the upper half, and put it in the lower half the other way around and fix it with tape, then fill with bait. Place somewhere the mouse can get in. It won't be able to get out and you just made yourself a cheap and effective mouse trap. If you still want to kill the little fucker do it yourself.
Bleach is unnecessary. The mouse will drown eventually anyway because there is no way for him to jump while he's in the water. It will tire and drown.
I once trapped a mouse in an empty washing machine. It was still alive until I turned it to the spin cycle.
The most humane way is the traditional spring loaded trap. It instantly kills them in most cases. A live trap would be good too, just release them a few miles from your home, or near the home of someone you dont like.
its morning and nothing happnd.
I moved the trap to the kitchen and set up a peanut butter trail
yeah idk how to take care of that bleach smell, but the weight of the mouse will drop it and the magnet together. maybe the trail will help
>change Chestnut with Walnut
Here's the objectively best mousetrap that my father uses for ages.
The catch is, when the mouse starts fiddling with the b8, it pushes it side to side, the walnut is round, so it looses grip with the pot/bucket on the top, and everything falls inside trapping the mouse.
If you see the trap is shut you either set it bad and it closed itself, or the mouse is inside.
So you flip it around, closed by the glass underneath and the mouse should be there.
It catches the mouses alive, so it's up to you if you want to drown/free/eat/rape them
at first you will probably found it hard setting it on the right walnut bump, so it always fall inside the bucket, but once you get the idea, it's easy to setup and always work.
Also, my father use the inside of another walnut as b8 (probably because he's too lazy to think of a better mouse meal), but i've never seen a mouse being able to escape that threat.
We do similar thing, but just have water. They drown.
Drill holes in sides of bucket, near top. Poke hole in bottom of empty Pepsi can. Run a straightened out coat hanger through the bucket holes and he Pepsi can is in the middle of the top of the bucket. Lean a 2x4 against it. Rub peanutbutter on Pepsi can, fill bucket halfway with water.
This is better than springloaded traps, because the ones we had were too big for small mousetraps, and rat traps smashed their head and blood got everywhere.
If you want live trap, so the same but with a taller bucket, and no water. They get trapped in.
Sticky mouse traps are an abomination. The mice get stuck and literally tear their skin and limbs off trying to escape.
What third world shithole do you live in that you can't even get a spring-loaded mousetrap?
If anything I would think the mice don't like the smell of bleach, didn't think of antifreeze in place of water
But op you need to add a bottle on a wire at the top of the bucket
The mice jump on that, it spins
>60% of the time it works every time
