I have seen many different mousetraps and rats throughout my life. Not that I'm fond of this somehow, but I just came across the mice from the house.
I'll tell you how to make a mousetrap that will kill the mouse by electrical discharge. The design is simple and uncomplicated as always.
What you need to make a mousetrap?
And also: wires, wires, a piece of profile, a bottle, hot glue, etc. We need a half liter plastic bottle. It is necessary to cut off the neck exactly. To do this, first mark up the cutting line with a marker.
We cut off.
We take a piece of galvanized profile for fixing drywall. Cut a small piece.
Take the switch.
Mark up the seat for it.
Drill a hole to the center,to make it convenient to cut.
Cut with scissors on metal or in another way.
Install the switch in the hole.
Unscrew the bottle cap halfway. We take a drill, fix a thin drill, and drill a hole in the cap without screwing it completely off the bottle. Drill on both sides. One hole is maximum at the top so that the passing drill does not touch the neck, and the second is as low as possible so that the drill goes through the lid and through the neck.
Next, fasten the cap and ream the hole on the neck of the bottle with a large hole.
Then, just below we make two more holes only on the necks with a thin drill.
We need a piece of wire.Bite off a piece of nippers.
We make a U-shaped and insert it into small holes. Zagryat like this:
Screw the lid on before aligning the holes. Screw the screw into a small hole.
As a result, we have a knot, when rotating the lid on one side or the other side of the screw touches the wire. It will be a kind of switch.
Glue the resulting node to a piece of the profile.
Then take a piece of wire a little more, bend it like in the photo and push it into the hole on the other side of the lid. Fix with hot glue. This will be the electrode.
Putting together the entire structure.
Drill a hole under the wire.
Next, cut out a strip from the rest of the bottle and bend it. It will be a spring.
With hot glue we glue it exactly in the middle between the angle of rotation of the lid.
That is, now, during any displacement of the electrode, it will return to its place.
Drill a hole for wires.
Solder wires, collect a chain.
This is a high-voltage converter that converts 9 V from a battery to 7000 V.
Putting it on hot glue.
Skip the high-voltage wire and attach it to the electrode.
We isolate all joints with the same hot glue and attach to the body so that nothing dangles.
We also put the battery on hot glue.
Everything is ready.
The principle of the mousetrap
A piece of fat is hung on a hook located in the center (mice and rats love it). The mouse approaches this piece and naturally tries to drag it away. She pulls him. As a result of this thrust, the contacts located on the roof close. And the high-voltage converter will run the current from the battery. The transducer electrodes are connected to the hook and bait and to the profile.As a result, a high voltage will be passed through a rat or a mouse that will try to drag off fat, which will kill the rodent.
