At times rats might appear out of nowhere, whether causing damage or just creating a huge mess in the house. Getting rid of them can be challenging, but in the following video we see a tutorial on how to make a disposable DIY rat trap with household items, so you do not have to pay for a trap. All you need to make one is a disposable cup and straw, some rubber bands, tape, bottle cap, thread and some peanuts. The method is pretty simple; the rat will be caught inside the cup without harm.
The first this you need to do is to poke a hole through the bottle cap and glue it in the disposable cup. You take the straw and put it through the hole in the bottle cap and secure it with glue. You make another hole at the bottom of the disposable cup which forms the basic shape of the DIY rat trap. Next you have to tape the rubber bands to the cup and tie a peanut to the end of the straw. Put the rubber bands over the straw and you are done! All you have to do now is to wait patiently until the rat is caught!
