Trying To Catch Mice In Your Home? Know The Right Mouse Trap For The Job


Have you seen evidence that mice are in your home, and you are not sure what to do? You'll likely want to buy some traps to see if you can catch the mouse on your own. However, with there being so many different types of traps out there, you're likely wondering which one will be best to get the job done. Here is what you need to know about the following types of mouse traps. 

Snap Traps

The most classic style of mouse trap that you can buy is a snap trap. They are a reusable trap that is designed to kill a mouse by using bait as an effective activation switch that triggers the trap when the food is removed. Plastic snap traps are going to be easier to clean than those made of wood, and not retain odors that can happen due to a dead mouse that has been touching the trap or the food that is on it. 

Glue Traps

Glue traps are another method of catching a mouse so that they cannot go back to their home. The goal is to lure the mouse into the trap with food, and the glue will cause them to get stuck in the trap so they cannot leave. Glue traps can be rectangular boxes that will catch the mouse as they pass through them, which are placed along walls where mice tend to travel. However, they can also be plastic trays where you place bait in the middle and it is surrounded by glue. Some people don't like using glue traps because you need to dispose of the mouse while they are still alive and stuck in the glue trap.

Electric Traps

One of the fastest ways to kill a mouse is going to be with an electric trap, but they are much more expensive to purchase than other traps. The electric trap has some sort of bait deep within the trap that is used to lure the mouse into it. Once the mouse is detected due to a trigger, a jolt of electricity is used to kill the mouse instantly. Since it is a reusable trap, it can be used to catch several mice without having to buy multiple traps.
