Looking for excellent “no-kill” mouse traps? 🐀 ❤️ 🐁

We’ve had incredible luck with these: Catcha 2 Piece Humane Smart Mouse Trap.

We recently moved into an old house and we love it here. However, old houses have old problems… and guests. Yep, we get occasional mice. We no longer have a cat and, after trying a cheap humane solution from Home Depot, we tried the above traps and caught 2 little fuzzy midnight marauders in less than 24 hours after setting them.

That got us through the fall and winter until we had another little guy (that loved fruit) venture into house this week. I set the traps again and boom, he was sitting there in the morning.

Helpful tips from a novice trapper:

  • Peanut butter is the best bait by far.
  • Instead of setting the traps around food. We’ve had the best luck setting them around obviously travelled areas. In other words, if you find mouse droppings in an area that doesn’t contain food inches away, place your trap there. Not sure why this worked the best. I’m guessing less distraction? 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • The packaging often mentions this but, it really does help to drive the captured mice a few miles away from your house. If you have some woods or a park nearby that’s perfect. You might even get a knowing nod of appreciation before they scurry away to live their best life. ☺️

So if you’ve been failing to find humane traps that actually work, give these a shot. They are well made, re-usable, easy to clean, and reasonably priced. That and it’s felt great to not have to kill or severely maim these little buggers.
