Rat Trap

This simple but powerful trap is created with only three materials. The materials are:

  • Cardboard paper
  • Rat glue
  • Piece of wood


Get a piece of cardboard paper, pour the rat glue on the surface and place two pieces of wood on both sides. Put a piece of food at the center of it and drop at the part the house the rat passes regularly. Once it gets attracted to the food, it will step on it to eat and will be glued to the trap.

I know this is going to sound stupid to alot of people, but there are better humane ways to get rid of mice and rats. This is a horrible death for these creatures. What do you do with them while they are dying a slow death? At least the traps kill them immediately. I am not into poison, because they go outside to look for water and hawks and owls can get them and poison them. For mice, we use have a heart traps and release them out of town in fields. Please don't think that I am wacky, but the glue thing is a slow death.

I do not think you are wacky at all. I totally agree with you. There is death and then there is torture. Death should be quick and humane for any animal that must be put down.


People now, who have the brains to know they have done wrong, now that is another matter.

I agree with both of it humanely! To leave any creature stuck in glue to die is just plain cruel. I certainly hope no one follows Taura from jos suggestion. There are plenty of more humane ways available.

You can put the rat out of its misery once it is stuck. Rat poison is also horrible stuff. Rat traps can also be if the rat is caught and not killed immediately but rats are also really bad to have around. Best of all probably is to get a rat terrier. They kill them very quickly. Trapping and releasing them may be a good option but you may also just be causing a problem for someone else.

My friend had mice/rodent/rat problem. She did not really want to use extermination as she is an animal lover----the exterminator's wife shared a secret with her that worked! She said to burn sage in the rooms and the rodents think there is a fire from the smell and will leave. It did work. No chemicals.

These baits use chamber hunters to mousetrap

Even if it is anchored firmly from the cartoon films in our heads, catching mice with bacon and cheese was yesterday! The use of bacon and cheese brings only sobering results compared to the following lures.

So what baits are best used?

The success recipe is simple, but not every bait can be used with every mousetrap. This is mainly due to the consistency of the bait. What you can do in each kind of mousetrap you can find here.


The Top Koder:

Ferrero kisses
peanut butter

life case
Nutella & Chocolate

Live drops are mostly closed and the mouse does not come out again after entering the trap by a special mechanism. The bait should be placed as an incentive to actually trap the trap in the mousetrap. The mechanism must therefore be overcome. The smell of the mouse is very good, but the scent of the bait is often shielded by the closed trap. The consistency of the bait therefore plays less of a role. Use different of the listed lures to enhance the odor. By heating, the fragrance is distributed further in the room

Snap traps
Peanut butter, Nutella

Blows can be overloaded by mice when you are wise. A solid bait is not recommended, this can be easily stolen from the trap. Use a bait with soft consistency and lubricators to trap him on the trap, the mouse is so forced to trap the trap.


This results in very good fangling results.

Cage Traps

The cage trap is designed in such a way that it only triggers when the triggering bait attachment is moved jerkily. Therefore the bait should be firmly fixed to the trigger. Thus, the mouse is forced to pack the bait and the lid of the mousetrap closes reliably.

group Fallen
Ferrero kisses, stickers, walnuts, peanut butter

Group traps for mice in the house are similar to the single-life traps. What baits should be used plays a subordinate role, much helps a lot. Just place a selection of tempting baits in the trap. This makes them particularly attractive for the mice. To ensure that the trap does not have to be cleaned so intensively, solid baits that are not so sticky are suitable. You can also fill a jam lid with a soft, sweet and sticky bait.


Electric traps
Nutella, peanut butter

To prevent children and pets from injuring themselves on the electric trap, these are screened. In electric traps, the mouse usually does not reach the bait because it gets a current shock. For this reason, an alluring bait should be used. In most cases an intended field is to be coated with the bait, so a soft consistency of the bait is suitable

Since mice have an extremely sensitive odor, it is advisable to wear gloves with the bait trap with the bait. Thus the mouse does not reach the scent of man and is less suspicious.

Glue traps are a pretty horrific way to trap any vermin. Almost as bad as using rat poison which can result in secondary poisoning of owls etc. Much better to use an instantaneous kill taps like the Fenn shown here
