PostSubject: Glue Mouse Traps   May 31st 2011, 12:20

Well, we've had some problems with mice in our storage unit out in the backyard. They have managed to eat through the drywall, etc. but they were slick enough to escape the old fashioned traps so I thought I'd get them with the glue traps.

Safe to say it doesn't do crap for Mice but it works wonders for roaches, spiders, lizards.......... lol!

OMG... you could give a squeamish girl a warning! lol I hate creepy crawlers of any kind but esp. the spiders; I am a little sad for the lizard! So sorry you didn't catch the mice. How about adopting a cat?!

Renee, I had an issue with field mice recently when they started building around the corner. They cut down a ton of trees and those mice had to go some where it was so frustrating !!!!

Any ways we used the glue traps and they worked fantastic but the trick was that I placed Bacon on them.
You know... the bacon bits that you put on salads. Damien even got 3 on one sticky ..... those greedy little buggers can't resist the bacon !!!!!

we had one mouse recently and they told us to put peanut butter on the glue trap. we got him THAT night. Renee--that is quite a smorgasbord of nastiness! You have a much stronger stomach than I!

Glue traps are horrid and disgusting things. I know mice can be a problem, and yes, sometimes you must kill them - but does it have to be so torturous? They get stuck, panic and rip pieces of their body off. They'll gnaw on their limbs if they have to, to escape. Something that kills the animal quickly is so much more superior.

What do you do to the poor mice that are stuck on them? It's not like they're going to die quickly just stuck there. Please, if you're going to use these vile things, at least kill the mice humanely. Don't throw them into the bin alive like some people to, that's unnecessarily cruel not to mention it might get off and you'll have an injured, bleeding mouse somewhere.

Personally, I think glue traps should be illegal. They are too barbaric. If you've seen a mouse literally skin itself alive with broken legs, screaming in pain, you'll know what I mean.

WARNING: the below videos demonstrate glue traps, if you're squeamish or have a heart for animals this might be a little upsetting.




So mean and unnecessary.

LOL - yes, this is a pretty nasty smorgasboard of critters. I didn't even think about peanut butter or bacon bits but will have to try that if everything else fails. Mice are so disgusting and they have completely destroyed a wall in our storage unit.....so I am bound and determined to get this critter.

We have mice at my SIL's cottage where we're staying. There were two traps here but I think they don't spring too well anymore so DH has gone to buy a couple more this morning. Peanut butter has always worked really well for us too!
