Arbuda Glue Traps work on the same principle as flypaper: when a rat or mouse attempts to cross the glue board, the Rat gets stuck on the board due to sticky surface. Glue boards are much more effective for mice and rats.
• Step 1: Observe mouse activity. If you see a mouse in particular area repeatedly, it is a sure sign that he probably has an agenda. Perhaps he is looking for food. Or this could be the area where he enters your home.
• Step 2: Place traps with precision. If you often see a mouse in more than one location, go ahead and set out several traps in various areas to increase the chance of capture. For instance, place one under your refrigerator, inside a cabinet and behind the microwave to cover high and low spaces.
• Step 3:Put out bait. If a few days pass and you have no luck, consider placing a tasty treat on or near the glue trap. Chances are the mouse will make a dash for the food and get stuck to the glue trap in the process. Crackers, bread or granola bars make good mouse bait, and they are easy to clean up.
• Step 4: Check Arbuda Glue traps often and replace if necessary. Sometimes mouse or rat becomes so accustomed to the trap's location that he avoids it completely. Replacing and moving Arbuda Glue traps at intervals can increase the chance of a catch.
