Where should the trap be set?

The FSC wood mousetrap is particularly suitable for indoor use. Outdoors, the trap should be set up in a tunnel or box. This protects the trap from moisture and avoids problems with pets and other small animals.

The attraction of the bait is only 1-2 meters. Place the traps where the mice really run or where mouse tracks can be seen (excrement pellets, gnawing marks). Mice run mostly along walls, rarely across open spaces. Point the trap towards the wall as mice rarely cross open spaces.

Should gloves be worn when setting traps?

Gloves should always be worn when working with traps. It's not about the human smell on the traps. Rats and mice that live in and around buildings are not afraid of human smells. Wearing protective gloves is important for hygienic reasons. Mice and rats, whether dead or alive, can transmit dangerous pathogens through contact with fur or body fluids. Gloves protect against infection.

How often do traps need to be checked?

Check traps set at least once a day. This is important or mandatory for a number of reasons: Dead mice can be disposed of before decomposition begins. In rare cases, mice caught in the trap are not killed immediately, only injured. Then they must be removed. Traps can be re-baited, reset or relocated to better locations as required.

How many traps should you set?

It is better to set several traps, even if you suspect only one mouse. In the case of a stronger infestation, several traps should be set up anyway.

What should be observed when there are children and pets in the vicinity of the traps?

Wood Mouse Trap classic is safe for children and pets. But for reasons of hygiene, it makes sense to place traps out of the reach of children and pets.

What do you have to consider when there are protected animals?

Some mouse species are strictly protected. In Germany, this applies to the wood mouse, the yellow-necked mouse, the dormouse and all shrew species. Just like house mice, these are attracted to the bait and could also be caught with the mousetrap. If these species are present or if this becomes apparent during the course of control, no control may be carried out or control that has already started must be stopped. Before any (further) control measures can be taken, permission must first be obtained from the nature conservation authority. Resettlement using live traps must also be approved first.

The mice don't go in the traps, traps aren't accepted?
  • Eliminate all sources of food. The hungrier the mice are, the more likely they are to show interest in the bait in the traps.
  • Remove all traces, feces and urine. Clean up affected rooms and clean with hygienic cleaner. This disturbs and confuses the mice and traps are accepted more quickly. Infestation control is made easier because it is easier to see where mice are still active.
  • If the traps are not well received, it may help to place a small amount of bait, no larger than a grain of rice, in front of the trap (pre-bait).
  • It may also make sense to use a different bait. Rodents also have different tastes. Nutella is a very good alternative to peanut butter.
  • Sometimes mice are also shy of one type of trap. Then it may help to try a different trap.
