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.

Awesome idea, Just made mine and putting in some of my dog biscuits (something is going for it) and I’m not having any luck with mouse traps. So i thought your idea might be the one to track down the little tacker that is sneaking about in the night. I attached my trap.. Thanks again.
TOMCAT Glue Boards are manufactured with low-profile plastic trays, designed to reduce the chance of rodents stopping at the edge of the tray. The trap’s narrow lip also keeps rodents from skirting along the edges of the tray and avoiding the glue. Once rodents step onto the glue tray, TOMCAT’s tenacious glue will hold a rat securely, while just the slightest contact with the glue will hold a mouse.
The answer?  Put a trap (any trap, not just an electric one) close to a wall or boundary fence where you know or suspect the rodents are running. Make sure the opening of the trap is closest to the wall.
Both of these traps allow for disposal without touching the rat. The SecureKill Rat Trap has a grab tab for easy disposal. For easy clean up, dispose of the trap and the rodent together. If you would prefer to reuse the trap, pinch the trap open and drop the dead rodent in the trash.
TOMCAT Glue Boards capture rats and mice without poison, making them ideal to use in food plants, kitchens, restaurants, food processing plants, hospitals, residences, zoos and other sensitive areas where poison is prohibited or discouraged.
Obtain a long cardboard tube with one end closed. The tube might be from a paper towel roll or poster. It should be at least 12 inches long, 2-5 inches in diameter at its mouth, and have one end stopped with tape or with a cap. Place something soft in the closed end such as cotton balls or a wad of soft fabric.
If live trapping is the preference you end up trying to do the “responsible” thing, beware of local laws and regulations.  In many areas, relocation of wild animals is prohibited.  Relocating to different counties can also be against the law.  Be sure to check with your local animal control official before relocating any live rat.  In some cases, they may even offer to come out and pick it up.
The Victor Electronic Rat Trap is the ultimate in rodent control. It works by delivering a humane, high-voltage shock to effectively kill the invading rat. This powerful device is capable of killing up to 50 rats per set of fully charged batteries (4 C), making it a great value when you’re dealing with a sizable infestation. It’s also easy to use. Get started by simply applying a high protein bait in the provided bait cup, place the trap in a location with high rodent activity and turn it on. The trap is equipped with advanced smart circuit technology, which senses when a rat enters the tunnel, triggering the system to deliver a humane, high-voltage shock once the rat steps on the electrified plate. Since rats have the ability to restart their hearts after an electrical shock, this trap applies shock for 2 minutes to ensure higher kill rates. After making a catch, a green LED light blinks to indicate a kill. For your convenience, the trap’s design allows you to easily dispose of the dead rodent without having to see or touch it. The new and improved design of the electronic trap has a removable kill chamber, which provides better plate access so you can easily clean and bait it in between uses. These traps require no poison or chemicals and can be used anywhere inside your home or business to ensure years of effective rat control.

Using rat attractants or lures in small amounts attract rats, but in large amounts they repel rats. Most rat attractants are synthetic versions of “rat breath odor” that rats use to signal the safety of a food supply. Using too much of the rat attractant—or using commercial rat bait that has been allowed to dry out—will chase rats away from traps. You can learn more about rat poisons by reading this article The Top 3 Rat and Mouse Poison Baits.

__The ‘Professional’ style trap rarely works. I have watched rodents OH-SO cautiously not touch the yellow pad and ever so lightly nibble on the bait. Only once did it work. Two mouses/meeses were at the trap and were wrestling for the food where the trigger was accidentally sprung. But, it caught 2 mouse’s in my house’s.
Hopefully you can use the information below to select the best mouse trap bait for the mice currently invading your home. You will also learn some tricks to use the bait effectively when you come across those few little guys that like to steal your bait without setting off the trap.
Update: reduced my rating from ***** (5) to ** (2) as the trap broke after the first use (kill). The plastic latch mechanism cracked, presumably when it caught the first rodent, and will no longer set. It was literally set 1x and used 1x (correctly per instructions) and broke.
Professional services can cost hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. These methods are all very cost friendly. From the budget busters to the more high-tech electric models, all of them are affordable.
