Comfortable Mouse Home
on March 2, 2011
Me and my house-mates bought some of these traps when we saw a mouse in a couple of our rooms. We baited them and set them properly and for a week nothing happened. I saw the mouse in my room today, sitting on one of my open clothes drawers staring at me. We spent two hours hunting it all over my room before catching it ourselves in a big plastic container. The mouse is now inside said container, into which I also placed one of these traps so that we wouldn't have to kill it ourselves.
Long story short, the mouse is using it as a lovely home. It has come in and out repeatedly, and it probably enjoying the peanut butter we baited it with. The trap has yet to go off. It may, hopefully, eventually work, but if you have to force the mouse into it for hours before the trap goes off then that kind of defeats the purpose of just laying them out in the open.
Way to go D-con. "Guaranteed to Kill" my ass. Should have gone for another type of trap, but alas thats all they had at Wallgreens besides really crappy looking cheap snap traps, and somehow they duped us into thinking this would work better. All this trap has done is make the mouse more comfortable.
