There are different choices of mouse traps for sale in the market today, from the primitive snap traps to new-style electronic mouse killers.

The primitive snap trap has been on sale for a long time now. Conventionally a bait is set onto a spike on the standing area of the trap and then a bar (spring-loaded) is entered into the loop holding the arm of the trap (the lethal part). As the mouse places its front paws onto the standing area to get to the bait it activates the sprung loaded arm to whip down on itself at the back of the neck thus breaking its back and killing it.

Versions of humane mouse traps come in the form of live-catch traps, these are typically trip-traps where the mouse accesses the trap to arrive at the bait. As the mouse gets to a precise point of the device the rear of the trap will shoot up allowing the door to swing shut behind him thus trapping the mouse inside the trap. If, as a majority of people do, you would prefer to release the mouse into the wild again, try to avoid letting it loose close to your house, as the odds are you will be attempting to capture that same mouse again the following week


Other forms of the humane mouse traps on offer are the multi-mouse catch trap and the automatic catch trap. These can entrap up to 10 mice and 15 mice (respectively) at a time, all live-catch traps need to be monitored frequently and preferably should not be ignored for periods longer than a day, so if you are going away for a short break forget about setting your mouse traps, you can always leave the trap permanently open and this will allow the mice to get accustomed to accessing the trap without fear.

The final mouse trap is the electronic mouse killer, this type is placed along the mouse run if possible, mice habitually run along the bottom of walls/skirting boards because they feel more secure being able to see the whole of the room. When the mouse comes into the trap to feed on any available bait, it triggers the mechanism by putting both front paws onto metal plates strategically placed within the unit. As the mouse completes a circuit with its legs it receives an electric jolt killing it immediately. The dead mouse is then extracted and the unit can be used again.

Since the invention of the house, a certain rodent has been invading them. Carrying viruses, diseases, and other germs, the mouse is fully capable of making a human extraordinarily ill.

And once again, ever since houses were made, people have been looking for new ways to remove the mice from their houses. In 1894 the first trapping mechanism for mice was invented by William Hooker. Ever since various styles of the mouse trap have been thought up.

But the recent iteration of this trap is the electronic mouse trap. Unlike the previous versions the electronic mouse trap can catch more than one mouse per trap and is much easier to use as well as incredibly safe compared to the old ones.
