THE ROLLING PIN
REPEATING RAT AND MOUSE TRAP
- Simply runs on gravity, peanut butter and water.
- Rats and mice are always looking for food. They like peanut butter.
- The Rolling Pin rolls around when rodents walk on it out to the peanut butter - they fall off into the water below.
- For endless trapping - just empty out the dead ones from time to time
- Chooks love rodents for the protein, if they are freshly drowned and there are no poisons on the property.
- The Rolling Pin sits inside a bucket, with or without water
- For live capture, use a tall bucket with straw instead of water on the floor as mice can do a standing jump to leap right out of a normal household-size bucket.
- The Rolling Pin can be used inside or outside in the weather.
- No poisons, mangling or secondary kills of unintended animals such as pets and wildlife eating poisoned rodent carcasses.
- Stainless steel construction for a long product life.
- Spring loaded for easy insertion into holes in the bucket
- Good for one rodent or plagues in biblical proportions and everything in between.
- No toxins, batteries or mangled rodents.
- No power source required.
Cut two holes opposite each other just big enough to insert both ends of The Rolling Pin so it sits parallel with the ground.
One end is spring loaded to make it easy to insert into the two holes.
Position the holes around 100 mm below the top edge of the bucket to stop rodents from easily jumping out.
Place blobs of peanut butter around the centre of The Rolling Pin as its smell is the bait to attract rodents.
Partially fill the bucket with water, at least 150 mm deep, below The Rolling Pin.
Lean one or two planks of wood smeared with peanut butter as ramps up to the top edge of the bucket.
Wedge the bottom end of each wooden plank with a brick or up against a wall to keep them in place.
Optional - you can place a lid, piece of wood, plastic or other material over the centre of the bucket to prevent rodents from jumping out while they are falling off The Rolling Pin into the water below.
For plagues of rats or mice, sit The Rolling Pin over on one side of a 44 gallon drum and run a plank of wood off a bench top to lead them to the peanut butter and the trap. Empty daily and reset with fresh peanut butter.
