Cheesy mousetrap is a safer, friendlier option

By ERIN COVERT / Special Contributor

 

Made from recycled plastic and molded to look like a wedge of cheddar, the trap attaches to the open end of an empty water or soda bottle. Place bait, such as a dollop of peanut butter or a piece of smelly cheese, inside the bottle. Once the mouse crawls inside, it cannot crawl out.

The homeowner can release the mouse in a more desirable location by removing the device from the bottle and allowing the mouse to escape. Because Catch A Mouse doesn't use chemicals or dangerous mechanical restraints, it's safe to use around children and pets.

Yes, A Better

(i.e., Green) Mousetrap

By Robin Stansbury

 

In the world of green building, green living, green cleaning, green design and green power, now comes a product for ... green mouse trapping.

Yes, now you can safely, humanely and easily (the product boasts), remove a mouse from your home with Catch A Mouse.

And to make you feel less guilty, the product allows you to reuse some of those wasteful water bottles you've been drinking.

Catch A Mouse (available at www.greenbottleusa.com), works by placing peanuts or peanut butter inside a 12-ounce or larger plastic beverage bottle, and attaching it to the Catch A Mouse "cheese" wedge. The mouse crawls into the bottle but can't crawl back through the wedge. To release, you simply rotate the trap upside down, twist and detach for "touch-free disposal" outside.

No traps. No snaps. No poisons. No dead mice. The kit has a suggested retail price of $6.99.

The product designers say mice are curious and will venture into and through spaces less than half an inch in diameter; thus they can squeeze through the small bottle opening. Once caught, the company says, the mouse feels very comfortable and safe inside the bottle, becomes extremely relaxed and often falls asleep.

The best part of this product: It's safe to use around children, so if you do want to get rid of some pesky mice, you don't have to worry about the kids discovering snap-traps with their little fingers.

CATCH-A-MOUSE the Friendly Way

By Maggie Reed


Leave it to a Wisconsinite to find a way to attach a piece of plastic cheese to an empty bottle to rid your place of mice.

 

 Green Bottle USA is a small company based in Janesville, Wis., comprised of Bryan Muche and his two daughters. Together they provide a way to not only conserve and recycle our material resources, but also help out our animal resources.

Green Bottle USA's Catch-A-Mouse trap is eco-friendly, humane, convenient and safe for use around children and pets.

There's no trap
or snap, no pet's paws or little one's fingers getting caught, and no sticky glue or poison.
 

You simply use an empty plastic water or soda bottle, put some peanuts or peanut butter inside as bait and attach the cheese wedge entrance. Mice go into the cheese entry and can't get out of the bottle.

Once inside, it seems they feel comfortable and safe. They nibble on the bait and become relaxed — they often even fall to sleep.

Once you've caught the mouse, you can take it away from your home and back to its outdoor environment.

To release mice, rotate the trap upside down and off they scamper, avoiding the "ick" factor of having to actually touch the rodents.

Another plus, you're being green. Studies show that Americans throw away more than 60 million plastic bottles a day. Catch-A-Mouse gives those bottles, and mice, a second chance. "We know that we aren't going to save the planet by keeping a few plastic bottles out of the waste stream," Muche said. "But I tell my kids even little changes can make a big difference, especially when it comes to conservation."

Catch-A-Mouse costs $7, plus shipping. For more information, visit www.greenbottleusa.com

Catch A Mouse

Plastic water bottles can get a second use as humane mousetraps with a device called Catch A Mouse.

Catch A Mouse is essentially a cheese-shaped portal that screws onto an empty water bottle. A mouse enters through a trap door in search of bait you've placed in the bottle, and it can't get back out. The bottle holds the live mouse until you release it.

There aren't many palatable options when it comes to a mouse in the house — unless his name is Harold and he lives in a cage on your kid's dresser.

The new Catch A Mouse trap removes the ick factor of mouse trapping. It's a plastic cheese wedge that fits on top of your (recycled) 12-ounce water bottle. Put peanuts or peanut butter in the bottle and leave it where you've seen mice. Mouse climbs in and can't get back out — but isn't injured or killed.

To release the mouse where he's more welcome, rotate the trap upside down. If you're too squeamish for that, take off your cheese wedge and leave the mouse-filled bottle.

Mouse-age in a bottle

 

Posted by Matt Casey, Wednesday, July 16th at 12:27 pm

 

Typically, the only good way a mouse and a beverage bottle go together is when Disney partners with Coke for a promotion. Any other combination of rodents and refreshments usually induce screaming, lawsuits and bad PR, but

Green Bottle USA has a new way to combine the two.

 

The company markets a humane mouse trap called “Catch a Mouse.” Customers attach an empty bottle to the mechanism and wait for the little critters to find their way in. Once in, they can’t get out, and you have yourself a mouse in a bottle.

 

From there you can release the critter a safe distance from your home, or dispose of the pest without need to touch it directly. Or, you could stick it in the fridge and see how people react. But you shouldn’t do that. And if you do, you shouldn’t tell anyone where you got the idea.
