"Last resort" Mouse ControlBook Style BoardsCan be reused if no catch made
Pack of 4 Mouse Catcher Boards. Rapid results for the difficult to deal with mouse! These boards are the book style fold away type that can be closed and used again if unsuccessful the first time round.
Sticky boards are not our favourite means of dealing with rats and mice but as a last resort they provide a very effective, though somewhat unpleasant, solution.
Size: 22.5cm x 15cm.
Place in areas where mice are known to be active, place close against skirting or wall for best results as mice tend to run around the edges of a room.
Do not use Mouse Catcher Sticky traps outdoors unless well covered and protected from non target species, traps will catch birds and small mammals so please be careful. Cooking oil can be used to release anything that is caught unintentionally, but we really don't want you to allow that to happen!
Please ensure you read and adhere to the following:
1) Option of last resort - All other options for rodent control must be considered before glue boards are used.
2) Check boards frequently - Where rodent boards are used these must be inspected at appropriate intervals. This should be within 12 hours of placing, or at least as soon as is reasonably practicable, including weekends and bank holidays.
3) Protect non-target species - Boards must be placed in such a manner that they do not present a risk to non-target species.
5) Use the correct size board for the pest species - The size of the board must be appropriate for the target species.
6) Dispatch of trapped rodents humanely - Rodents trapped on rodent boards must be dispatched quickly and humanely. Placing the glue board in a clear plastic bag and dealing the rodent a sharp blow to the head with a blunt instrument would be an appropriate mode of dispatch. Drowning is NOT acceptable.
7) Remove boards at the end of the treatment - At the end of the treatment all rodent boards must be accounted for, and removed.Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006, any animal becomes a 'protected animal' when it is 'under the control of man whether on a permanent or temporary basis'. Therefore an animal in such a trap is a protected animal, and if it suffers unnecessarily as a result of poor practice in the use of the trap, or through a failure to release or kill the animal in an appropriate manner, then an offence of causing unnecessary suffering under section 4 of the Act may have been commited.
