Buying Guide for Mouse Glue Trap

Benefits of Mouse Glue Traps

Mouse glue traps are easy to set up and are budget-friendly. On top of that, they can be cut down to smaller size so they can fit in everywhere you wish to and the narrow lanes. 

These type of traps are disposable and you don’t have to clean and set it up again. 

Glue traps are basically free of any chemicals or poisons. They use adhesive to trap the mouse and it sticks to the glue and the mouse eventually die of hypothermia because it can’t move to give enough temperature to the body.  

Downsides of Glue Traps

Glue traps like all other traps come with their own downsides. It actually raises the issue of being inhumane and cruel with mouse/rat for some people. Glue traps sometimes make it impossible for a mouse to be released without any injury and they are only for single use.

In such glue traps, the mouse doesn’t die quickly and they struggle. It also doesn’t work in extreme temperatures. They are meant to be kept away from children and pets as the adhesive is strong and won’t come off easily.

Lets be fair, you can’t get rid of these pests if you think too much about humanity and animal rights. You know, these mouses can spread deadly diseases so why we should scarify our health for just being so loving for these animals ? 

After all mouses aren’t pets and they are constant threat to our health. I believe you should get rid of them as soon as you can. 

Consider This Before Buying Glue Traps

If you’re not new to using traps, then you might have an idea of mouse or rats. For the newbies, it’s not easy to determine the proper use of the traps and the placing strategies, therefore, for newbies its always a better option to go with pre-baited glue traps. 

If not, you can place your own bait on normal traps to lure the mouse towards the trap. Before buying glue traps, you should also be considering a few more things like,

  • Look out for heavy duty plastic which allows them to be placed in places like under sinks and basements
  • It should have a flexible design
  • Look out for the traps with a strong adhesive especially if you have rats around.
It also depends on which type of infestation you have. If you have a small infestation, glue traps might work but for medium or large infestation, you should either use electric traps or contact pest control professional because you might make the situation worse if you deal with high infestation of rodent yourself.
