Mice can be a real pain in the ass when the infiltrate your home.  They chew through everything and leave droppings everywhere.  There are plenty of traps out there, but unfortunately, many of them are brutal and serve only to kill the mice.  That leaves many of us looking for humane ways to simply catch the mice so that we may release them outside of our homes.

Thankfully, YouTuber Chris Notap has developed a very simple, no-kill trap that virtually anyone can make.  Using just an empty two-liter bottle and a few other common household items, you can catch your pesky mice and release them, alive and well.

As Chris writes on the video, "[The] Mice are not harmed in any way during capture. As a matter of fact, the mouse remains very calm since there is no slamming doors or snapping latches to scare him! Mice can be released calmly and easily without fear of getting bitten even by the most "fearful of mice" person!!"
