Sticky mouse traps are essentially a small, flat piece of cardboard, plastic tray, or any other flat surface for that matter, with a thin layer of glue on top of it. Not just any kind of glue though – the type of glue that is used with these simple, yet intuitive devices is really, very sticky stuff.
When a rodent steps onto one of these things, they are stuck to it for good. In fact, as the little critter struggles to free itself from the surface, it is just making the device even more effective than it already is as more of its body parts get stuck in the glue, until it simply becomes impossible for the creature to move at all.
Killing poor little innocent animals not your thing? Sticky mouse traps are a much more humane way to eradicate your rodent problem than the deadly spring loaded contraptions of the old days. If checked regularly,
With the help of a little cooking oil or similar lubricant, the rodent can easily be freed from the mess it has gotten itself into. Just make sure you protect yourself, and release the rodent far away from your home so he won’t return.
Gone are the days of prying back those impossible rusty metal bars on the old spring loaded devices and cleaning up the bloody mess that ensues when one of them actually does its job and catches its prey. And gone are the days of getting woke up in the dead of night when one of your traps goes off and misses its mark; making a noise so loud that it could easily be mistaken for a gun shot. If you are looking for a hassle-free way to eradicate a rodent infestation, sticky mouse traps are one of the simplest rodent control solutions available.
There are more uses for sticky mouse traps than simply catching mice though. They can be used in a wide variety of pest control applications. Getting rid of roaches is one of these possible applications, and they can be used to catch ants, spiders, and any other creepy-crawly critters that may happen to come in contact with the glue on one of these boards. Placed in strategic locations, these clever devices can be a highly effective method to controlling just about any indoor bug or rodent problem.
