so welcome today we're going to talk about 
trapping mice is october mice and rats if  

you have those are moving into your buildings 
your out buildings your basement your garage  

your storage sheds your feed bins your b houses 
and your b storage areas so what i'm doing with  

this video is walking you through step by step 
how to build my mouse trap box that guarantees  

they go in and don't come out now this is 
a rat trap size right here these are metal  

they're made by a company called made to catch 
and they're a little different than the victor  

wooden mouse and rat traps because they have these 
teeth around them they're stamped out of metal  

they're going to last a very long time here's 
a really old one that's been out in the weather  

they hold up and they come in different colors 
silver galvanized the golden color you just saw  

and this is called black burnished which is the 
most expensive one these rat traps are no joke  

you will really injure yourself if these 
trigger on you but what i'm showing is the  

trigger mechanism itself see that copper piece 
in the middle there this will not work as well  

in my mousetrap box which keeps the traps 
shrouded so when a mouse or a rat goes inside  

your cat can't get to it your dog 
can't get to it and other animals  

other than your target animals don't get in 
and get snapped now i'm going to be using these  

inside buildings for this demonstration and 
we're going to go step by step how to build them  

look at this right here these are the mousetrap 
sizes so we're going to talk about the wood and  

the reason i'm making this video is because 
people kept asking me make a video on how to  

make it so it's over 19 inches in length i use 
scrap wood for this the wood thickness doesn't  

really matter so we're going to show you that 
19 inch length bottom boards we're going to  

make two at once here or 48.26 centimeters 
so we're going to cut this on the chop saw

we're going to cut two of them of course because 
we're going to make two takes just about the same  

amount of times it does make one we're going 
to make it 2 and 5 8 of an inch wide or 6.6  

centimeters and that's because we're building 
based on the size of the traps you're going to use  

so if you're using these made to catch traps 
this leaves you just enough play so that you  

can still place the traps and not have a problem 
next we're going to build the side walls so we use  

for the starting gauge of this the thickness of 
your bottom board and then just the arc of swing  

of the kill bar on your mouse trap right there 
so then you mark it on the side bar there we go  

rough cut lumber and leave a little space there we 
want a mouse or a rat not to be able to jump over  

the kill bar when it moves so 2.25 inches above 
the baseboard or 5.71 centimeters so again you  

just adapt it to whatever thickness bottom board 
you're using you can use two by fours for example  

here we are just verifying that we have plenty of 
space there and we'll go ahead and look at this i  

chose another slab of wood that's different in 
thickness to show you that it doesn't matter  

what matters is the interior space and those 
dimensions also you can screw the traps down  

to the bottom but i highly recommend 
you don't because you don't need to  

and here we are two and five eighths it looks 
like so that's the width which will accommodate  

these traps these traps are cheap they're 
about two dollars a piece or you can get a  

eight pack for 16.99 on amazon i'll put links 
down in the video description for your convenience  

and now we have two of them the 
wood is all chopped up ready to go  

and they're just laying in there to show the 
general placement of your traps i like to put  

groups of four and now we're going to glue it 
up with type onto type on two has a pretty quick  

tack so you can push your pieces of wood together 
and they tack up nice and you can clamp them and  

you can come back later and put screws in 
them i'm going to show you all of those steps  

so here we go i like to do it right 
on the concrete floor inside my garage  

and that way it's nice and flush and i'm going to 
clamp two of them together at the same time and  

the wood doesn't have to be perfect these traps 
don't have to be perfect all you're doing is  

creating a shroud for your metal or wooden mouse 
or rat trap so if it's a rat trap you just scale  

up the dimensions and follow the same procedure 
here i'm going to use these dewalt clamps and let  

me tell you what these are very stout so i'm just 
going to clamp it up with glue long enough couple  

of hours to make it hold so that i can put screws 
in it and you can bypass that of course and just  

put screws in and also the good news here tight 
bond cleans up with water so now here they are

and the other thing is you want to make sure and 
look at the ends there now while those are clamped  

up and gluing i'm going to go ahead and make the 
end pieces and i'm using a forstner bit here and  

we're doing an inch and a half in diameter so if 
you don't have one and you buy one an inch and  

a half is great mice and rats can go in through 
that and you can use it for making your bluebird  

houses if you want to because those entrances are 
also an inch and a half in diameter now i'm using  

2x4 stock here and i want that opening to come 
right into that box at floor level so all i did  

was mark off the thickness of the wood of the base 
boards and you will too i also mark off and drill  

all of the holes because there's four total 
because we're making two of them so i drill  

the holes first before cutting into smaller 
pieces it just makes it easier to manage that way

inch and a half hole inch and a half 
thick material because it's a 2x4

there you go just gonna drill some more of those

go to the slow motion sequence 
in slow motion i can see that my  

drill chuck actually moves quite a bit 
anyway we're all done let's cut those

pieces just cut right on that center line 
there again they're going to be wider  

than the box and that's fine because this 
will add stability to your mouse trap box

there we go so i already put stainless steel 
screws in these through the sides pre-drill  

them because that's oak on the sides there you 
don't want to split your wood have some pride  

in your craftsmanship there you don't want stuff 
to split and come apart so we're also going to  

pre-drill the end pieces we're going to glue them 
up and clamp them first just like we did the sides  

so i like to glue and clamp before i put the 
screw holes through and this way we can check it  

look at that mouse or rat is going to come right 
through there in this case this is a mousetrap box

and the theory is that when we put 
these things together any mouse or  

vole or whatever your target species is when 
they go into this they can't avoid the traps  

so really baiting the traps themselves isn't 
so critical as putting a food resource in there  

that they want to get to so then they go in and 
walk over the traps and that's what triggers them  

that's also why i like to put in multiple traps 
instead of just a single one now these holes make  

this box appealing to mice they naturally seek 
out hidden spaces cavities and things like that  

and you can put this along the wall and 
they'll naturally investigate it on their own  

and then you just put blackwell sunflower 
seeds in here and voila you've got a box  

that they want to check out and once they go in 
as you saw in the opening sequence of this video  

they really don't come back out also the hole 
serves to keep the trap in there so if you had an  

animal that was not completely killed they can't 
run away with your trap so it'll still be in there

now we're all done it's been a couple of hours 
and the end pieces are on we're just going to take  

those clamps off and then we're going to drill 
them out and put some deck screws now on the ends  

there's the bottom these things will last many 
years especially if they're inside but they also  

work in your garden or places like that if you've 
got problems and now we'll just drill it out

the pine that the 2x4 is made of it's not such 
a problem but we're close to the end so i don't  

want to split it out there and these are these 
heavy deck screws they're over three inches long  

and they're self notice the cutting leading edge 
there they come with their own bit for your drill

so now we're screwed and glued if you want to 
put some kind of identifier or name on there  

that's fine too but it's 22 inches long 
with the 2x4 end pieces and you'll notice  

that they stick up a little higher than 
the side walls why would it do that well  

we're going to cut the roof for it and 
i'm going to show you that in a second  

be very careful of course hearing 
protection eye protection and don't  

let your hand get close to these blades 
these are diablo blades that i like to use  

always use a guide or something to push the 
wood through don't play games with your hands

nice thick slabs of wood that a 
friend brought over and gave to me  

so here we go the width is five 
inches they're both the same

and these are your top see this is very easy 
if you're if you know basic woodworking you'll  

be able to build these and you scale them again 
according to the size of the traps you're going  

to use now notice the gap on the side the ends 
actually raise the board the cover a little bit  

and that's because we want those mice to smell 
the food inside there but not be able to get  

in through the side we want them to go through 
this hole and when they get in there they're  

going to see a row of traps and then they're 
going to step on these wide trigger plates  

and again you don't have to put bait on the 
trigger plate i've been doing this for many years  

in fact i'll put a link down to 
my original box of certain death  

and you'll be able to see how i did those i did 
rat traps and mouse traps and people were upset  

that i used so much dramatic music through that 
video and i stagger them the other thing is the  

way i'm showing it set up here is backwards 
i actually want to face the trigger plates  

towards one another you also put a little teaser 
food out there and we're going to be putting this  

in my observation beehive building which right 
now is being visited by too many mice to be honest  

so we got to get them and we're going to use this 
box i don't like glue traps i don't like anything  

that's going to let them suffer if you're going 
to kill mice or rats make sure you put something  

together that will in fact kill them there's 
no reason letting them suffer people put live mice trap maker  

cat traps out and they forget the trap is out 
there and then they've got an animal that just  

starved to death so here they are in place 
there are two of them in the same building  

and when you put four traps in there you can 
catch multiple mice at one time some people say  

mice and rats smell death so if one's in there 
and it's dead you're done that's not true  

when there's a dead mouse in there guess what the 
other mice do come right in and walk right over  

the top of them and here's what i'm showing you 
with the trigger plates facing each other that  

way if a mouse gets in here and tries to jump over 
the traps they land on the very next trigger plate  

and off it goes and most mice trigger trigger 
more than one trap when they visit this box  

you can even put this inside a chicken coop for 
example because the chickens can't get to it  

so it's a great way to trap your problemed 
rodents now we're back it's been an overnight  

see lots of rat dropping mouse droppings here 
open up and see if we were successful and of  

course we were we got three mice in one night in 
the same trap that's how it's supposed to work  

now what do we do with the mice afterwards we 
don't just throw them away let's recycle them  

we're going to toss them out in this field next to 
the wood line and we're going to see what comes to  

eat them now you can do this with your trapped 
animals once they're dead there's no reason  

just throwing them in the garbage put them out for 
wildlife and here comes the fox it's kind of picky

sorting through him deciding which one he's going 
to eat first he even gives one a little flick here

he came through at about 11 o'clock at night 
there he tossed one of them off to the side  

and he partially eats one now fox will cash their 
food in other words they'll run off with them and  

go stuff them in holes bury them and things like 
that and then they come back and get them later  

this fox made a mistake he 
ran away with one of the mice  

thinking it's going to come back later but in 
the meantime a skunk came through and took it  

now the fox doesn't have anything to get and even 
marks the spot here a little bit watch right there  

marking and off he goes so that's it that's how 
you build a mousetrap box of certain death set  

it up if you're really going to trap mice do it 
this way it's a guaranteed kill works all the time  

but remember there's always more mice out 
there and if they're outside that's fine  

but when they come into your spaces 
the basement the attic your bee shed  

you might have to set out mouse traps 
thanks for watching i hope it was
