This is a long drawn out peep noise, it indicates severe protest and is generally most commonly heard when rats are fighting over something such as a tasty bit of food. The rat with the food will attempt to defend it, squeaking in protest if any other rat approaches
After my encounters with the mouse who had gotten stuck in our glue trap, I wasn’t able to sleep for several nights without the paranoia that every little sound I heard was made by a small suffering mouse.
AThe Trapper Rat and Trapper Mouse Glue boards use the same type of glue. The only difference is the size of the board. If you know you only have mice, then you should get the Trapper Mouse Glue Boards. If you are not sure, then you should get the Trapper Rat Glue Board because it is large enough to catch rats and mice.
This technique doesn’t buy the mouse or rat a lot of time. If you put in it other rodents’ territory, they will attack it. It’s also vulnerable to predators. But you will have avoided killing the creature yourself. Don’t reuse the container for food storage.
Affix a string to the bottle. With your bottle oriented so that the hinge is on the surface of the table, you should now have a bottle with two skewers through its upper part (one just to the left and one just to the right of the place you made the cut). Turn the bottle over so that the hinge is on the top. Unscrew the cap and place a string as long as the bottle approximately one inch down through the mouth. Screw the cap back on tightly with the string still partway inside. Give the string a slight pull to ensure it is snugly in place beneath the bottle cap.
Even though they’re widely sold at many retailers, glue traps aren’t safe for consumers, either. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Health Canada caution against their use because animals who are trapped on these devices often void their bowels, potentially exposing anyone who handles the traps to hantavirus—a virus that can be fatal to humans.
we had a mouse that was outsmarting us. We got this and found out it was a chipmunk! We have caught many mice and chipmunks with this. It has solved a problem that was getting to be very frustrating. We really didn’t want to have to kill them but it had to be done as too much damage was happening in the basement. It is quick so humane.
Like Mark says above, when it was plugged in, my dog reacted to it immediately. I tested this by plugging and unplugging it, and it was obvious that the sound of the repellent (not audible to us) was bothering him.
put one in the barn next to feed barrels it was sad it caught a bird instead. the trap worked fine though. due to the size of the trap being so large it might be a problem for small animals you are not wanting to trap. i think i’ll just use the smaller traps for everything.
I prefer it to snap traps because of the lack of blood and gore – the body is very easily disposed of without leaving a mess behind which is a potential hazard to chickens, pets, wildlife or children.
in vietnam baking soda is difficult to find so i use cement method. when i was in pakistan ,it was easy to find baking soda so i used baking soda method to kill rats and it was very effictive way to kill
This set up is genius on paper. It would allow me to catch multiple varmints without having to re-bait or reset the trap. Set it and forget. But in real life, you’re going to need a bigger bucket – or smaller rats.
Ordered two packs. I have been seeing a couple rats in kitchen so I thought I would try these traps over conventional traps. THEY DONT WORK. I have laid out the traps and wake up to find rat prints on the traps but NO rats.
A: Individuals in a rodent population search for different types of food. For mice, anything high in protein like peanut butter, chocolate or hazelnut spread is a great option. Also, nesting materials like dental floss, cotton or string are also great options. Try to use whatever bait or nesting material the rodents are currently feeding on or using to build nests.
Last night I used peanut butter . . It woke me up about 1.30 . . this time I had freaked out rat running around with a rat trap on it’s head . . I was left with no choice but to bash it’s brains out with a hammer. . . .really unpleasant.
The concept here may seem complicated but its actually quite simple. On either side of the trapped door, is two rubber bands pulling at the door which is being held up by the trigger. The trigger is the red twine that runs to the bait in the bottom of the bottle.
Basically how this works is the mouse makes his way up the ramp, through the hole and because you put the peanut butter on the far end of the can, he is forced to step on the can, which will spin, ultimately leading to the mouse to fall into the bucket where you have water deep enough that the mouse will drown.

I purchased the electronic pest repeller and plugged it in. Later in the day I saw a roach, grabbed the electronic pest repeller out of the wall socket and smashed the roach with it. The roach was deffinately dead. The device was 100% effective, and the easy storage in electrical outlets makes it handy. I’m going to purchase one for every outlet in this roach hell hotel.
I just purchased the electronic pest repeller and i only saw one roach so far and I just put them in two days ago. But my daughter says she can hear it, it said on the box that us humans cant hear it. So why is she hearing it?
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!
Actually, these rodents will eat just about anything. We were fortunate that we only lost a pack of cheap noodles and was left with only one extra opening in his pack. If left to their own survival instincts – they gotta eat – rats can destroy non-hardened food storage items and spread disease.
Place a trash can beneath the tube. The can should be wide enough to accommodate the falling tube. Place a small pillow, soft cloth, or pad on the bottom of the can to cushion the tube and mouse who will soon be trapped within.

Place a treat at the end of the tube that hangs off the edge of the counter. This will lure mice into the tube. The apparatus – and the mouse – will fall into the receptacle you set up below when the mouse reaches the treat.
Cage traps are metal or wire boxes containing bait (non-poisonous) to entice the normally cautious rodent. A food ball is placed inside the trap; removing or eating the food triggers a mechanism that snaps the entry gate closed, confining the rodent without injury. Cage traps must be monitored closely—a trapped rat will die of stress and dehydration if not taken outside and released promptly.
Drive a stick through the opposite ends of the water bottle (Or whatever object you chose to use. It should be cylindrical and easy to roll.) Drill holes in two sides of the bucket near the top where you can slide the hanger through. Fill the bucket with water. (optional) Set up your ramps, and then bait the rolling mechanism. You’ll have rats climbing up to get to the delicious bait only to be dropped to the bottom of the bucket!
Wait for the mouse to fall in. The mouse will run up the ruler to reach the food on the opposite side of the coffee can, then fall into the can when the apparently solid surface gives way beneath it. You’ll know the trap has been sprung if you see the bait you laid is no longer there, or if the construction paper has been partially torn. Check the can for the mouse.

In the past because of my hearing acuity I have been invited to, and taken part in studies to test why some people are able to hear these frequencies that many cannot. Even now, as I get older and the noises are not so acute, I still hear the high pitched squeal from many electronics, which I can assure you is most unpleasant.
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.
Once you catch a rat in a live trap you will need to figure out what you want to do with it. Some states have laws that require you to kill any trapped nuisance rodents. If you do decide to release the rat then do so as far away from your home (and those of others) as practical.
Alternatively, you can also use cat’s litter. However, if the rat is infected with toxoplasmosis, it strangely may actually be attracted to cats and cat litter (a very weird side effect of the disease)
A: Electronic mouse traps are the quickest and easiest way to catch mice. They are easy to use, with no setting or glue required. Their no-touch technology, plus 100% kill rate makes them an ideal way to control your mouse problem. If you would like more information on how to catch a mouse, view our complete guide below.
Glue traps are one of the most inhumane rat traps in existence. Glue or sticky traps are squares of heavy paper or vinyl which have been coated with a non-poisonous sticky adhesive and impregnated with substances attractive to rats. Placed on the rat’s customary route of travel, the animal walks across the sticky surface and is fixed to the trap. Rats caught in this method have been known to chew off their paws to escape, most are trapped by more body surface and die an agonizing death due to starvation, dehydration and stress exhaustion. Asphyxiation can also occur when a rat becomes stuck head or nose down to the paper. It is also possible that the animal will not die, and have to be killed manually.
When you are free, you can create a default mouse trap and catch the mouse. But, also keep in mind that your family is your family and that they won’t get mad if you just tell them the problem. If that is not working, then catch the mouse yourself.
Not sure if the continuation of the tutorial is even necessary at this point. I didn’t have a mouse problem, I had rats! This is why I continue to stress the importance of trading theory for ACTION before you actually need critical gear and equipment.
