Trapper Bulk Glue - Gallon

The Trapper Bulk Gallon has been discontinued by Bell Labs. An alternative would be Catchmaster Bulk Glue.

Trapper Glue is a non-toxic gallon of glue that can be used to make your own rodent glue traps.It is most commonly used when there is a unique situation requiring a certain sized glue board. This glue is formulated so that it will work in a wide temperature range, however will not be effective in freezing temperatures. Use Catchmaster 48WRG Cold Temperature Glue Board Traps in freezing conditions.

Tools Needed

Trapper Glue, scissors and cardboard, boards or tar paper are needed to make glue boards.

How to Make Your Own Glue Boards

  • Remove all jewerly (rings, watches, bracelets) on your hands and forearms. With a small amount of liquid detergent, wet your hands and the blades of the scissors.
  • Place the Trapper Glue on paper or boards. You will want a thickness of 1/8" to 1/4".
  • Placement of Glue Boards: First inspect for mice activity or rat activity by looking for their signs. Place the glue boards in these areas. You will want the rodent to cross over the board and get stuck. Typical areas are along baseboards, walls, gnawed openings and beside burrows.
  • One way to increase effectiveness using glue board to catch rodents is to force them over the boards by blocking their passages.
  • Use a rodent bait such as Provoke Mouse Attractant or Provoke Rat Attractant in the center of the glue boards. Other materials would be effective such as peanut butter, but Provoke has been designed for luring rodents.
  • Many times a rodent will try to get off the glue board. Secure glue boards on pipes, ledges, etc by nails or wire, in order to prevent the rodent from running with the glue board

I love this stuff!!!!
I live in w. Africa where lizards are a problem. They get in your house and leave droppings on the walls, in cabinets, and wherever they pass. Because I live in a rural area, there are other kinds of tropical creatures that manage to get into the house. I put glue traps on every window sill in my house, and have trapped a variety of critters - including a poisonous snake.

Making glue traps is not a problem for me. I cover cardboard with aluminum foil and use a little extra to make crimped edges so the trap is like a small pan. I stick a pair of scissors and a plastic spoon in a an old mayo jar of soapy water. I use the spoon to pull up a large strand of glue which I cut with the scissors and lay in the trap. The soapy water keeps the glue from sticking to the spoon or scissors. It doesn't matter if the glue starts off as a blob in one spot in the trap. It eventually (few hours) spreads out.

I buy this stuff when I'm in the States to take back to Africa. A gallon lasts about 3 years or more.

Scorpions no more
I've been using trapper glue for a long time and it's the only thing that works on my scorpions. It works great when I paint the piers on my house because they can't get past the glue.
