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.
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.
Snap traps use food to lure a rodent in, making them very effective. Depending on how you look at things, they are more humane as they tend to kill rodents instantly. However, that is not always the case. I have seen mice & rats survive being caught in a snap trap. Sometimes it is just a foot or tail that is caught, and the rodent can be released in a different area, other times, the rodent is still alive but gruesomely injured. Users will still need to dispose of the rodent once it has been caught.
Live traps offer a way to catch mice & rats and remove them from your home without killing them. The traps are baited to bring the rodent in, but once inside, it cannot escape. After being caught, it is up to you to release your captive back into the wild, where it belongs. These traps usually allow you to release rodents without ever having to come in contact with them, and you are able to re-use the traps.
