A snap trap is the original and best known type of mouse or rat trap. According to Wikipedia it was invented in 1894. It works by having a spring loaded bar attached to a flat rectangular-shaped piece of plastic. The bar is held open by a trip release mechanism, on which a piece of bait is attached. When the mouse or rat starts to nibble the bait, the vibrations are enough to trigger the release, which allows the spring loaded bar to snap down on the wooden base, usually striking the rodent on the back of the neck and killing it.
Pros of Snap Traps
A snap trap can be highly effective and death can be instantaneous.
Cons of Snap Traps
However, sometimes the spring loaded bar does not strike the rodent in a place that causes death, which usually means it severely injures it instead. This causes suffering for the animal, and it may also mean that you have to kill the animal upon discovery. A snap trap can also be dangerous for pets or small children.
What We Feel At Pest Control Products:
We consider a snap trap to be quite inefficient at rodent control. They frequently cause extreme suffering to the animals and they are messy to deal with after the trap has been activated by a mouse or rat.
