Happy Mouse / Happy Mouse

Happy Mouse
Happy Mouse

The Methods on the actual marketplace – traps and poison – aren’t of extreme efficiency to combat rat infestation, because both cause some discomfort, stench and filth. In this context, we present the “Happy Mouse”: a simple plastic part capable to capture more than one animal at a time and leave no trace. After entering into the trap, attracted by the bait, the mouse won’t be able to escape because of the curved walls of the piece - which with the aid of cooking oil becomes smoother. After the hunt, it’s only necessary to close the door and carry the animal to the most appropriate place, like some environmental agency, for example.
