Even with the event of wet weather, it appears that WA still has a big mouse problem – rodent traps are very popular. One of the advantages of a multi catch, live catch trap is that the caught rodent makes a noises and their ‘friends’ come to join the party. I watched this work at my parents farm over Easter – at breakfast time we had one mouse squeaking in the trap, by morning tea there were 3 of them, I left at 11:30am when 4 were eating the peanut butter and when Dad emptied it mid -afternoon the trap held 7 mice.
The ‘see-saw’ style mouse traps, are sturdy and it is easy to see what you have caught (esp if you are looking for marsupial rodents before disposing of the vermin.) They can also be used as a ‘bait station’ – by putting the poison inside the trap, you don’t have the problem of the rodent running off to die in the most awkward corner of the roof, or in the wall. Nor do you run the risk of secondary poisoning as the deceased mouse is contained where other animals can not get to it.
We sell two sorts of these – one with a single entrance and a double ended ‘repeater’ version. Both are for sale on the website:
