Glue traps are a smart alternative to poisonous bait that can be used around a home or office to control a rat or mouse problem. Glue traps are non-toxic, easy to use, and cost-effective, making them a popular choice for homeowners and pest professionals alike. DoMyOwn’s selection of rodent glue traps are the same grade the pros use.
A glue trap is a flat piece of cardboard covered in a specially designed sticky glue that can be placed flush against floors and walls where rodents travel. Many customers prefer Glue Traps because they present an alternate method of eliminating mice without the use of poisons.
Glue traps can be used in food plants, kitchens, restaurants, food processing plants, hospitals, residences, zoos and other sensitive areas where the use of poison is prohibited or discouraged.
Glue traps, like Trapper Mouse Glue Board Traps are easy to use. Simply place the traps where the floor meets the wall in areas where rodents travel (as indicated by rodent signs like hair, droppings, or damage).
Mouse glue traps have a low profile so the mouse will not become suspicious when it happens upon the trap—it will continue to walk across it as if it were an extension of the floor. As soon as the mouse comes in contact with the glue, it becomes entangled and unable to free itself. The mouse will eventually die.
In addition to using the glue traps, you may also want to try the following when controlling mice:
What are the Benefits of using Glue Traps?
Are there any drawbacks to using Mouse Glue Traps?
When you check the traps you have placed after a few days, there is always the chance that a trapped mouse will be in the process of dying, and not yet dead, which may be unpleasant for some people. In that case, the right trap for you might be a humane mouse trap, like the Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap, which traps up to 30 live mice at once, allowing you to turn around and set them free outdoors.
What if the glue gets stuck to human skin?
If a pet or child happens to come in contact with the glue from the Glue Trap, it can easily be loosened and removed with vegetable or mineral oil.
What should I do when I find a dead mouse on the Glue Trap?
Mouse glue traps should be checked daily for dead mice. When disposing of dead mice carcasses, always wear rubber gloves to prevent any chance of disease, and place the carcass in a plastic bag for disposal.
Can Mouse Glue Traps be used for Rats?
No. Trapping rats requires much stronger and larger glue boards, so if you have a problem with rats, be sure to buy the glue traps specified for rat use, such as Trapper Rat Glue Board Traps.
