The Catchmaster 72XL Glue Boards (Box of 72) is an extra-long mouse and insect trap, that is 24 x 4 inches, for more coverage and with a peanut butter scent. It will keep mice and insects from infesting goods in food production facilities, museums, storage facilities, supermarkets, warehouses, etc. Surrounding pallets and shelving with the 72XL Glue Boards is easy and is able to create protection zones. One of the best ways to keep mice and insects from entering into an area is by placing 72XL Glue Boards along the perimeter of any room.
Well I've been using these glue boards now for about four months and I can honestly state that they do not work as well as the plastic tray type glue traps that I was using. I bought these because the cost was much less per sq. in. than others, but I'm finding the cost per catch is much higher.
I am using these traps to catch mice in my garage and I am only getting a catch about 1 out of 4 times. The problem is that once the mouse gets stuck to the trap they seem to be able extricate themselves from the trap. I have observed many spots on the traps where a mouse has been stuck as evidenced by a patch of fur and chew marks, but by the time I check the trap they have escaped.
I'm not sure what the problem is with these traps, the glue seems sticky enough. Maybe the glue layer is not thick enough. Whatever the problem I will be switching back to the Victor or Eaton plastic tray traps.
We apologize you did not receive the expected results! Are insects being caught on the boards? Are you sure that you are dealing with mice and not rats? Please let us know. We want to make this right for you!
I've used this product during my 12 years of doing pest control, and works great for mice, spiders, and lots of other different insects. I would not be without them on my truck. Hard to believe someone would write a review and say they don't work. I use my 72mb 6 days a week 7 months out of the year in lots of different applications. Thank you for a great product!!
