Leave it to a Wisconsinite to find a way to attach a piece of plastic cheese to an empty bottle to rid your place of mice.
Green Bottle USA is a small company started by Bryan Muche and his two daughters. Together they provide a way to not only conserve and recycle our material resources, but also help out our animal resources.
Green Bottle USA's Catch A Mouse trap is eco-friendly, humane, convenient and safe for use around children and pets.
There's no trap or snap, no pet's paws or little one's fingers getting caught, and no sticky glue or poison.
You simply use an empty plastic water or soda bottle, put some peanuts or peanut butter inside as bait and attach the cheese wedge entrance. Mice go into the cheese entry and can't get out of the bottle.
Once inside, it seems they feel comfortable and safe. They nibble on the bait and become relaxed — they often even fall to sleep.
Once you've caught the mouse, you can take it away from your home and back to its outdoor environment.
To release mice, rotate the trap upside down and off they scamper, avoiding the "ick" factor of having to actually touch the rodents.
Another plus, you're being green. Studies show that Americans throw away more than 60 million plastic bottles a day. Catch A Mouse gives those bottles, and mice, a second chance. "We know that we aren't going to save the planet by keeping a few plastic bottles out of the waste stream," Muche said. "But I tell my kids even little changes can make a big difference, especially when it comes to conservation."
