For centuries mankind has been on the quest to build a better mouse trap. That is because no matter how many mice we trap, there seem to be hundreds of them ready to take the place of their fallen comrade. Mice are prolific breeders and reach sexual maturity after about three weeks of living. Therefore, the trapping and killing of mice has always been an important task for humans. Today, the best mousetrap for quick and clean kills is an electric mousetrap.
Anyone who has ever touched a light socket with a wet hand knows the power of electricity. It is deadly. It is also very fast working. If you electrocute yourself or are struck by lightning, the damage is done in just a few seconds. Therefore, if you are looking for a way to kill mice, electricity should be your weapon of choice. All you need to do is convince the mouse to complete an electrical circuit, thereby shooting many thousands of volts through his body and stopping his heart almost instantaneously.
An electric mouse trap is the best way to encourage of mouse to complete an electrical circuit.
Let’s face it, you can’t pass out tiny forks to all the mice in your house and tell how much fun it is to stick them into light sockets. Instead, the mousetrap lures the mice into a small plastic box with the smell of enticing bait, such as peanut butter or flavored potato chips. For an electric mousetrap to be successful, it must stay clean. This starts by using just a tiny bit of bait. If you use too much it might fall on the electric plates, complete the circuit and then you will have killed your peanut butter instead of a mouse. This also means that after you kill a mouse, you remove its body, make sure the trap is off and clean it thoroughly.
If you take the time to keep your electric mouse trap clean and in good working order, you should be able to kill about fifty mice without having to change the batteries. You also don’t have to worry about using your mousetrap in homes with cats, dogs, or small children. Should any of the abovementioned nose around the mousetrap and take off the plastic cover, the trap will immediately shut itself off and therefore eliminate the possibility of chance electrocution. An electric mouse trap is your best bet for a humane and efficient kill.
