Build a Humane Mouse Trap

Call us a bunch of bleeding-heart, granola-chewing hippies, but watching a mouse starve to death while it struggles on a glue trap or coaxing pests with poison isn't our idea of a good time.

Sure you could pony up some cash and buy one of those fancy humane mouse traps available out there, but you can also save yourself the dough and make your own with a used soda bottle, a piece of wood—maybe a salvaged cigar box from your friendly neighborhood smoke shack?—and some dry-wall screws. ::Humane Mouse Trap
