Mousetrap

Mousetrap SuperCat

Europe’s No.1 best-selling Mouse Trap!

How does the mousetrap bait work?
The bait is made of a long-lasting natural substance which mice find irresistible. There are no poisons in the bait.

How long does the bait last?
The bait will last from a few weeks to a couple of years. It will tend to disappear due to the action of insects or weather if left outside. The odour will remain, however, and it is possible to catch mice even if very little of the bait appears to be left.

Where shall I put the trap?
Place the trap where you suspect there are mice. As mice seldom cross open spaces, position the trap against a wall with its open jaws facing the wall. Check the trap at regular intervals.

The bait is gone, but the trap is empty. What happened?
The bait was probably eaten by insects or snails.

What should be observed when there are children and pets in the vicinity of the traps? </ B>
The SuperCat mousetrap is safe for children and pets.

What about protected animals?
The smell of the bait can also attract other animal species. Use the trap carefully to avoid the risk of harming protected species.

Is it necessary to clean the trap after each capture to eliminate the mouse carcass odour and get a higher capture rate? No, this is not useful. According to our observations, it is rather favourable if a trap smells of mouse or rat, also carcass odour is not a problem in itself. This arouses interest and reduces the fear of the traps. Highly polluted traps can and should be cleaned with water for hygienic reasons. Wear protective gloves and do not use soap.

The bait is eaten without triggering the trap. What could be the problem?

Sometimes there are some particularly small or light mice. It can also happen that individual mice are particularly careful and do not put enough weight on the trigger. As a result, they eat the bait but the trap is not triggered. There is a simple trick to make the trap more sensitive. Stick one or two layers of adhesive tape, such as parcel tape or insulating tape, onto the support under the lever. Raising the lever like this makes the trap more sensitive. The trap is optimally adjusted, when you can just still set the jaws open, without the trap immediately snapping back shut.
