The Best Mouse Trap for Indoors
The Best Mouse Trap
I have tried all kinds of mouse traps in my lifetime. For 4 years I worked in the Pest Control Industry. Our standard service for mice was to lay down glue boxes. I have learned that there are a few problems with glue boxes:
1). The scent isn’t enticing enough;
2). The glue wears out and doesn’t stick;
3). The boards are light and blow away;
4). They are just overall ineffective.
So, when I found Two Mice in our garage, I decided to try something different.
Press ‘N Set Mouse Trap by Max
So, I got on Amazon.com and researched what other people think the best mouse traps for a good price are. This Home Defense Press and Set Mouse Trap came back as one of the most highly effective traps at a good price.
I brought it home and my son and I put it together. It is a piece of cake to assemble. Nothing like those old school wood traps with that steel lever that always snaps back at you unexpectedly. You don’t have to worry about snapping your finger off preparing it. There are three easy steps (ok four):
1). BEFORE You set the trap, put your bait in it. I would recommend to Always use peanut butter over cheese. Peanut butter has a stronger smell that will attract the mice out of the walls and wall joists. Cheese, depending on its age and type, may not be enough to attract mice that are far away from the trap.
2). Set the Trap by pressing down on the set bar. You can keep your other hand totally clear of the spiked trap, so if it does come down, it doesn’t come down on you. VERY Safe. Good thinking Max.
3). Put the Trap on the Ground. Nothing to it. Just keep your fingers clear of the spiked trap, as it might engage when setting it down.
Than you wait………..
I put two traps in the garage in the evening before I went to bed. When I woke up:
4). There were two dead mice. The worst part of the process is putting the mice in the garbage can. It’s semi disgusting. My son said he felt bad for the mice. So there may be some people that prefer a more humane method.
