Mouse traps are a tried and true method for getting rid of unwanted rodents in your home.  Snap traps have been in use for hundreds of years, and glue boards and live traps have also become a reliable option. One thing all of these methods have in common is that after you’ve caught the vermin, you need to do something with it.

A Mouse in the House

I remember when I was a child; I saw a mouse caught on a glue board. That was one of the most horrifying sights in my memory. The mouse was still alive, but hopelessly stuck to the trap. This is a common occurrence when using glue boards, and users are faced with the decision of either ending the rodent’s life quickly by killing it, or simply throwing the trap and rodent away, sentencing the little guy to a slow death. Personally, I couldn’t choose either of these inhumane options.
