Flip cup plate mice trap


you need a ramp onto a five gallon pale for the mice to make their way up to the bait. In this trap, we have swapped out the spinning can for an unbalanced styrofoam plate.

The concept here is that the larger end of the plate, the side without the bait on it, is being held by the buckets edge, to give the mouse support enough to walk onto the plate and make it’s way to the bait.

After the mouse crosses the fulcrum or the part of the plate where it will be off balance, ultimately acting as a drop away door, the mouse will fall into the bucket with no way out.
