How to Use Glue Board Traps For Rodent and Insect Pests

How to Use Glue Board Traps For Rodent and Insect Pests


Hi my name is Erin and I’m with Do My Own
Pest Control dot com. Today I’m going to do an overview on glue boards, sometimes called
glue traps and sticky traps, but they are one of the best mouse traps. Glue boards come
in two sizes. They come in the mouse size and they also come in the rat size. They are
available scented and unscented. They’re great for catching rodents, snakes, and they’re
obviously great for catching household insects including spiders. These are glue boards that
have already been in use, and have already caught some little crawling insects. These
are really great, effective way to catch crawling insects, great monitoring tools especially
if you’re not sure what the type of insect you are dealing with. If you’re not sure what
rodent you’re dealing with, opt for the rat sized glue board. The rat sized glue board
will trap rats, mice, and insects. It’s a good choice if you’re not sure. If you know
you’re dealing with a mouse; if you know you’re dealing with common household insects, then
you may want to go with the mouse size. The mouse sizes are available and you can lay
them flat or you can fold them. Folding them is great because sometimes mice and snakes
prefer the tunneling effect. It also keeps dust and debris off of exposed glue, and it
keeps the insects hidden. If you’re going to lay them flat, you want to expose the glue
by peeling off the sticker on top. You want to place glue boards where children and pets
cannot access them. Rodents and insects tend to follow along the travel pathways of the
walls and the corners and the edges so you want to place the glue boards along the baseboards.
Now let me show you how. You want to place glue boards right up against the baseboards.
You can also place them up against corners or entry points or where you’re having high
activity or insect activity, and you just place them along the wall and you leave them
here. When you are finished, they are easily discarded for quick and easy cleanup. I hope
