Traditional Vs. Humane Mouse Traps

Due to the level of damage caused by pests at home, it is vital to create a removal and control plan to make your home habitable. Over the years, the use of mouse traps has been an established method for controlling these pests. These traps include the traditional traps commonly applied in homes, offices, commercial facilities, as well as the high-quality humane traps available at LifeSupplyUSA.

This article takes a detailed look at the humane and traditional mouse traps, highlighting their different features and providing a verdict on the best option for you to choose from.

Read on to find out more.

What is a humane mouse trap?

As the name suggests, humane mouse traps are designed to achieve the effective control and removal of critters without subjecting them to undue suffering. One of the best means of achieving humane mouse control is the use of live traps. Live traps for mice can be bought from household product stores like LifeSupplyUSA.

Humane mouse traps are for catching the infesting critters and relocating them away from the infested area. These traps are designed so that the trapping mechanism is triggered when the rat enters the trap.

Live traps are typically baited to encourage their efficiency. They are also designed in line with the size and tendencies of the critters. For example, live traps for mice available at LifeSupplyUSA are designed to accommodate the size of critters and prevent unnecessary injuries while they are trapped.

The design of these traps is adapted such that the critters are not injured as the trapping mechanism is activated.


Humane mouse traps like live traps have several advantageous features. The main appealing feature of these traps is that they do not intentionally subject the critters to any form of torture.

The goal is not to kill infesting mice immediately. The trapped critters could be later killed humanely and painless, or removed from the area. To minimize the torture that the critters are subjected to while trapped, it is vital to check the trap regularly.

Safety First

Another appeal of this type of trap is the fact that no toxins are associated with live trapping. The application of toxins in an area could distort the ecosystem from unintended secondary poisoning.

Ease of Use

It is also noteworthy that humane mouse traps like the live traps available at LifeSupplyUSA are easy to use. They have a wide range of applications and can be installed indoors or outdoors.

An important criterion for mouse traps and traps for any pests applied outdoors is that they can withstand the elements. Traps obtained from LifeSupplyUSA are particularly durable and can withstand the elements.

Traditional mouse traps

Snap traps are the major category of traditional mouse traps. The simplest design of snap traps is a small piece of wood attached to a strong metal wire.
The traps are usually baited and structured so that as the critters go for the bait, the metal part snaps the neck and kills it.

An Unnecessary Evil, or Plain Unnecessary?

The design of snap traps is such that they kill the critters, not always immediately, while causing them pain and torture. In fact, various animal protection authorities have spoken firmly against the use of these types of traps.

Although sold at a very low price, these traditional traps are not safe to use. If the traps are not applied correctly, they could injure your finger.

Another disadvantage of using this type of trap is later on having to handle rat carcasses, which are hazardous materials. Rats can carry a variety of bacteria and disease, why bother making contact with them at all? Snap traps are antiquated and juvenile. With humane traps, there is virtually no contact to be made, and is safer for both you and the pest.

What is our verdict?

This article has taken a detailed look at the features and benefits of the humane animal traps bought from LifeSupplyUSA, compared to the traditional trap sold in the market. It could be seen that the humane traps have appealing features, such as their ease of use and the fact that they do not harm the mice in any way. The humane traps also eliminate any form of contact with the carcasses.

Based on the features mentioned above, humane traps can be described as the best option for use at home, office, and business environments. The traditional traps, on the other hand, are unsafe for use. They could harm unintended targets and even injure the user. If you need a humane and effective option for getting rid of the critters from your property, opt for live humane animal traps from LifeSupplyUSA.
