Humane Mouse Traps - Live Mouse Traps
These multiple mice traps can catch the mouse live and you can choose to dispose of it . The Wind Up Trap may not be humane as it stuns the mouse as it flips over in the catch area. The truly humane traps are Victor Tin Cat Mouse Trap , Kness Tip Mouse Trap and Little Pete Mice Traps.
- When using any type of mouse traps, first inspect for rodent activity. Place the mice traps along their runways. Typical runways are along walls and baseboards.
- Remove any harborage areas and include sanitation procedures to reduce the rodent population. Remove garbage and any excess spilled food in the kitchens. Removing any other food sources would cause the rodent to want to take the lure already on the mice trap.
Humane & Mouse Trap Placements
The most common mistake in placing all mice traps( including glue and snap traps) is to set out too few traps. Most always, the rodent population is underestimated. This results in too few traps used; the rodent population continues to build up. Place humane and live traps at intervals of 10-15 feet along walls and baseboards.
After the Catch
When releasing these trapped mice, go a distance from the home and exclude all possible entry points. Copper Mesh and PUR Black Gun Foam are two recommended exclusion materials.
