Information & Tips:

  • Wearing gloves while setting the trap is highly recommended. Throughout the day, we pick up and carry odors on our bodies which rodents can detect and be repelled by.  You can minimize the chance of transferring these aversion odors to the trap by simply handling it with gloves.
  • As dogs and cats are among rodents’ natural predators, avoid touching them or other pets before touching the trap.  Unlike human scent or even dead-rodent stench, pets’ smells can be used as quite a decent rodent repellent.
  • Check the trap at least twice a day.  When you discover a CaptSured rodent, go ahead and release the little critter as soon as possible. Click HERE for more releasing info.
  • Do note that rodents can smell their way back, therefore, it is advised that you release it at least 2 miles away from the property.  
  • Place the traps in areas of high activity; typical areas include along walls, behind appliances, objects, and in darkened corners.
  • Most-recommended natural baits include peanut butter, maple syrup, bird seeds, and/or nuts. 
  • Eliminate as many food sources as possible to enhance the bait’s luring effect, encouraging your furry guests to find food elsewhere.
