Rice paste is a more heavy-bodied type paste, and because it doesn’t dry transparent, it’s best used underneath papers and objects, where it can’t be seen. Apply paste with a paintbrush and smooth down with an old credit card/driver’s license, if needed.  This glue will store for several months if kept sealed in a jar if kept sealed in a jar, and stored in a cool dark location when not in use.
A snap trap, when used properly, kills the mouse instantly with a bar that comes down on its neck. The problem is that they may not be set properly – and when that happens, mice may be able to grab the bait without triggering the trap… or they may be injured and left to suffer, rather than being quickly killed.

However if this is not an option or you feel the need to permantley dispose of the rodent, I would recommend a simple bucket of water. Put the bottle in and put a brick over it to submerge the trap. Walk away. Come back when all the drama is over and dispose of the entire bottle.

I put a bit of peanut butter on the center plastic bit and put this under my drawer. Finally caught the mouse that’s been running around my house for weeks! We haven’t found out where it comes in from, but at least we know that we can catch them! Thank you for these awesome traps! My brother and I took it to the next town over and released it in front of the forest. The little fellow couldn’t wriggle off. We used dishwasher soap and some water to set it free. No more rat poo around the house! Mom finally relieved. No more skittering noises in the night! Adios, El Magnifico!
I live in an apartment had have used ultrasonic pest control for 10 years. A few months after moving in we had a mouse problem, put down those sticky pads and bought my first ultrasonic plug ins and have been using them since 2006. After the initial problem, we spotted a rodent in Nov, 2011, rfreshed the units and no more problems until Sep 2015, which kind of surprised me because we change them every 18 months. We replaced the units and replaced them again in April of this year. It is now October and we have suddenly becme infested even though. Even though the units were replaced just 6 months ago,, we replaced them yesterday, and put down sticky pads. I’m hoping this will get rid of the disgusting things at least for the next 6 months (when we plan to move). I don’t know what happened. The plug ins worked for us for 10 years. Now I feel dirty and feel like everything in the house needs to be scoured, but I need the rodents gone first. I do have a spray I can use, but it smells so bad It kept everyone around here choking for hours.
Once you’ve located the site of their activity, you should place your Rat Snap Traps perpendicular to a wall at intervals ranging between fifteen and thirty feet. For larger infestations, place traps at shorter intervals.
We recommend you to use some different bait combos if it seems doesn’t work. For example, cracker with peanut butter, cat treats, peanuts, sunflower seeds or dog biscuits — choose the right one for your rats’ tastes. But don’t use salted product (nuts & seeds), which makes total sense as it has to detect the presence of the rodent and a wet salted path can fool it. The salt also corrodes the metal plates.

No doubt, the best way to catch a canny rat with a sticky trap is by putting some bait – bacon or peanut butter – inside a circle of the trap. Rats will have to cross the tape to get the food and will be caught.
Call me right away if you have an animal problem.  I can do an inspection for you, remove the problem animal from your property, and make some recommendations for how to prevent future problems by proper containment of food sources and elimination of access points.  I know rats inside and out; they are such a common problem and can ruin your home or business property and your health.  It is important to act quickly.  Your local animal control does not provide these kinds of services.
Snap or spring traps are your best option when you have identified a “runway” for rat traffic. Usually rats run along walls and under furniture or household junk to cross large open spaces. Two or three traps together will catch more than two or three times as many rats as long as they are placed in the rat runway. The kill bar kills the rat swiftly and with a minimum of pain. The advantage of these traps are that they are easy to set, there are no chemicals, they are inexpensive, and they are reusable, but you still need to make sure you don’t put them out where they can be tripped by children or pets.
How it works – Plastic rat traps work by suffocating the rat, not by a crushing blow from a thick heavy wire.  After capture, the plastic lid squeezes tighter and tighter and the rat cannot breathe.  As a result the rat suffocates – usually within minutes.  The air literally gets squeezed out of it’s lungs.
Live Catch Rat Trap Indoor Use: No, not unless used in attics or crawl spaces.  If used in these areas, be sure to check trap daily to make sure that any trapped animal has food and water.  Never leave trapped animals in a hot attic in the summer.
There’s a field behind my house and we sometimes get mice inside during winter. This year I’m not so sure. We’ve heard noises in wall cavities for several weeks but have not caught a glimpse or found droppings. I think I know where they’re coming in and have blocked it. I put out 3 humane traps using peanut butter&chocolate but nothing taken. I can’t find any disturbance to food in cupboards or any packages of food left out. I’ve now put a few things down to see what they might take for bait. They have taken some nuts and a small chicken bone (I heard them drop it on the floor), but have not eaten the porridge oats. I usually see the mice and their droppings. Is it rats?
Once a rat has been caught, a red light flashes. Then, you empty the rat into a sealable plastic bag, re-bait and place the Zapper back in the rat’s path for another kill. The Zapper kills rats instantly with a powerful 8,000-volt zap. Clean and easy, you never have to touch the rat itself. The Zapper handles all the dirty work.
PETA often fields calls from people who have discovered small “nontarget” animals hopelessly trapped on these sticky boards. One distraught woman found a glue trap with a bird, two frogs, and a salamander stuck to its surface. All the animals were still alive when she found them but died later, despite her efforts to free them.

Then, position boxes of equal height next to the buckets. Place thin wood planks on the boxes and have them overhang into the middle of the buckets. The planks should fall into the buckets easily when a little bit of pressure is applied to the end of it.

Just because a trap hasn’t snapped doesn’t mean it hasn’t had a visitor. It just means the rat in question was sly enough to pry away the bait without getting caught. If the snap didn’t do the trick the first time, simply try it again. There’s really no reason to add slow-working chemicals into the process considering how traps are designed to kill on contact.
Snap traps should be placed in areas of highest rodent activity. These areas can be determined by inspecting the premises for the highest concentration of rodent signs. Look for fecal pellets, tracks, runways, gnawing damage, grease marks, burrows, urine stains (made visible by a black or ultraviolet flashlight), rodent sounds, and live or dead rodents. High activity areas may include darkened corners, along walls, and behind appliances or other large objects.
I am the best mouser in our house (and we have three cats!) Like you, I found that rodents can eat peanut butter or cheese right off a trap without springing it. So I took to cooking a piece of turkey bacon until it was just shy of crispy, then I threaded a needle and “sewed” it onto the trap. Then I put the trap between the cabinet and stove so that the mice could only approach it from the striking side (and if the cats stuck their paws in there, the trap would spring away from them).
Living on a lake in Norcal lotsa spiders flies etc. Cats brought in some fleas so put in 5 of these electronic devices with high amaxzon rating from actual purchasers. Flypaper and sticky traps show drastic reduction in corpus and fly’s went away pronto. I put 2 pest strips ( toxic ) in attic spray bedding with Vets Best and cut up generic Seresto flea collars in 1 inch strips under cover and pet towel ( silver threads antimicrobial ). A battle with insects requires a combined assault.

So if you’re looking for a quick and safe way of killing them, you need a trap which will stop their heart – permanently.   It may sound “heartless” – but isn’t it better than your chickens getting ill?
I grew up in the Midwest, and every so often little mice from a neighboring field would occasionally find their way into our home and set up shop. On one such occasion, we picked up a package of glue traps from the local hardware store and set them out around the house. Back then, I didn’t realize just how horrifying a little glue trap could be.
Raticator Electronic Rat Trap.  If there ever was a “better mouse trap” then this is it.   The Raticator Rat Trap kills by using an electric current to stop the heart.  This electric current is powered by either AA or C batteries – depending on the trap.  The electric current is very weak but strong enough to cause death to the rodent.  These traps are suitable for indoor use around children and pets, but care should be taken to not let them play with it.
Usually, Snap Traps are disposed off with their kill. Baiting Stations need to be replenished with specialty bait. Electronic Traps need battery replacements. Consider these costs before making your purchase decision.
