How to Make an Emergency Mouse Trap (Humane, No-Kill)

Besides showing you how we homemade an emergency mousetrap from items we had around the RV, we have winners to announce in our 360 Siphon contest! Five lucky HowToRVgeeks viewers each won two 360 Siphon Roof Vents. Were you one of them? Scroll down to the bottom of this post to find out. ;-)

So there we were…. enjoying a quiet evening during a week-long boondocking trip in a remote part of southern Utah. We had the lights in the RV down low, when we thought we spotted something moving in the shadows up front near the driver’s seat. Sure enough, a little field mouse had somehow gotten on board.

We’d never had a mouse on the RV before, so we didn’t have any mousetraps. Even if we had been anywhere near a store that might carry mousetraps, they’d surely be closed this late at night. But we were eager to catch him before he could do any damage to wiring or other important RV systems, so we had to figure out how to make a mousetrap with items we had around the RV.

Watch our short video to see how we did it.

So… about that contest…
