How Catchmaster 72MB Glue Boards Work
The Catchmaster 72MB is a non-poisonous cardboard glue trap that captures mice, roaches, and insects on contact. Catchmaster glue boards have no insecticides or rodenticides, and the 72MB has a peanut butter scent that acts as an attractant to mice. (This is a synthetic scent that contains no peanut allergens.) Glue will remain most effective in moderate temperatures, but not in direct sunlight or freezing temperatures.
The Catchmaster 72MB will catch any insect pests and mice that cross its path. This trap can be used flat, flush with the floor, or it can be folded into a tunnel to create a dark space that is also protected from dust and debris.
Mice and insect such as roaches, crickets, spiders, earwigs, millipedes, and flying pests
Catchmaster Glue Boards are an excellent choice for the capture of mice, rats, and other small rodents and insects in the home. With no poisons, rodenticides, or pesticides, these glue boards use a special adhesive type of glue scented with peanut butter to stop rodents in their tracks. When it comes to pest glue boards, Catchmaster has been called “the Duracell of Glues” as compared to competitors’ glues that can become hard and rubbery after 30 to 90 days. The glue in Catchmaster glue traps is effective for at least one year and is not toxic to people or pets. They also contain no oil like other glue board products, as oil mixes with the body chemistry of the rodent allowing for escape. The low profile of these glue boards allows for easy placement of traps. Use the 72MB flat, or fold into a tunnel shape to protect from dust.
Glue boards may be used as a stand alone treatment measure for rodents or as an additional tool to baiting. If you know the rodents’ running paths, place a Catchmaster Glue Board wherever rodents have been seen to travel, ideally close to the wall in places not readily accessible to pets and children. If by chance a pet or non-targeted animal gets stuck to the glue trap, household vegetable oil may be applied for painless release.
Be aware that insects and mice trapped on a glue board may still be alive when you find them. If this is a concern, consider using snap traps or multi-catch traps. Be sure to place glue boards out of reach of children and pets. Catchmaster 72MB Glue Boards are easier to use than snap traps, inexpensive, and disposable.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: No insecticide/rodenticide active ingredient, only glue and peanut butter scent
Use Catchmaster 72MB Mouse/Insect Glue Boards where insect pests or mice have been seen or are likely to be found. Place glue boards flush against walls, in corners, or in other areas pests are likely to travel. In dusty areas, fold the glue board into a tunnel shape to protect from dust and debris. This tunnel shape is also helpful for catching mice in areas with less shelter. Discard in the trash after use.
*If folding over a drain (such as for drain flies) or into a box shape, make creases before peeling off protective plastic sheet for easier manipulation of the cardboard. Use the included tab and slot closure to secure box shape.
*Always use and store out of reach of children and pets. Vegetable or mineral oil can be used to dissolve glue, if needed.
Catchmaster 72 MB Glue Boards come in packs of 12 or cases of 72 boards. The amount needed will vary with target use and level of infestation. Boards measure 8 in. x 5 in. when flat.
Standard Application Rates
Place traps for mice every 6-10 feet. For insects, place wherever activity is suspected or seen.
For use in the following areas:
Use indoors in residential, commercial, or industrial buildings, in areas not readily accessible to children or pets.
Inspect for signs of pest activity, such as dead insects, food debris, or feces from mice. Place glue boards horizontally against baseboards, in corners, or in other areas pests are likely to be found. Use in corners of garages or storage areas, under appliances or furniture, or wherever mouse or insect activity is suspected. Do not use in areas easily accessible to children or pets. Do not place on moist surfaces or in areas likely to be exposed to water. Extreme heat may cause glue to melt. For cold areas such as walk-in refrigeration, use cold temperature rodent traps such as the Catchmaster 48WRG Cold Temperature Glue Board Trap. Discard in the trash after use or if covered in dust or other debris.
Catchmaster 72MB glue boards are not intended for outdoor use. Heat and direct sunlight can melt the glue, dust and other debris will stick to the glue and reduce trapping area, and rain may damage the cardboard.

- Mouse capture without snap traps or rodenticides
- Easy monitoring of insect pests
- Simply dispose in the garbage after use
- Inexpensive method of control

- Board easily folds into a tunnel shape to protect from dust and debris.
- Store out of extreme temperatures and direct sunlight; boards are not weatherproof.
- Use out of reach of children and pets or in pest monitors.
- Vegetable oil will dissolve glue if needed (e.g., if stuck to a pet).
- When folding at an angle over drains or into a box, fold creases before removing plastic film.
- Glue boards are helpful for pests difficult to kill with insecticides, such as spiders and crickets.
- This glue board is too small for rats. Use rat glue traps for rats.
- A small piece of food or attractant such as Provoke Mouse Attractant can be placed in the center of the glue board to attract mice. Do not use peanut butter or other oily food items as the oil may coat glue and render the boards ineffective.
- Use thumbtacks, nails, or staples to holds traps in place on small ledges, in vertical positions, or in other areas where boards may be easily dislocated.
- When monitoring insects, use a permanent marker to indicate pests already counted, then continue to use board until full.

Got better results than with other products
By Elliot on 05/05/2008
I have better results with Catchmaster glue boards than with other glue boards. It seems to me that they are stickier, and I suspect they don't have an odor which repels the mice.

Best way to catch spiders!
By L.p. on 10/06/2008
Catchmaster glue boards are the absolute best way to catch spiders!

By Robert in Santee, CA on 03/13/2011
We have the very poisonous Southern California Desert Brown Spider here. We use a dozen of these spread around the house. They trap LOTS of these spiders & various other insects. We change them out every few months or if the glue gets too much dust or too many dead insects. Silverfish, roaches, water bugs, fleas, mites, mosquitoes, & other insects we do not recognize are trapped in these things all the time and we do not have any pets or animals here. The price is wonderful. These also have the (very slight) peanut butter smell in the glue which catches roaches & mice like crazy. We buy these all the time now. We have tried the other styles from here, but like this one the best so far.

Not much luck with Glue Boards
By Regina in Silver Spring, MD on 05/26/2009
I've only caught two mice with these and I've put out 25. The mice are pooping on them, so I know they are walking around them. I noticed that they're putting bits of paper in one of the little boxes as if they are making a nest. I just wonder if the glue is sticky enough.
If the boards are placed in a dusty area, the dust may make the board ineffective and the glue not as sticky. Placement is also important. Try placing glue boards about 8 feet apart (don't place too many in the same area), and along a wall or baseboard so that a mouse running along a wall will eventually run right over the board. Finally, while these boards can be folded up into boxes, we recommend using them just laying flat. The box setup works well for catching insects and protecting the glue from dust, while a flat glue board allows mice to more easily run over the board. We appreciate your feedback. Good luck!

Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards - CASE 72 boards
By Gary in North Chicago, Illinoi on 10/19/2010
I like to use them as a flat board and they are very easy to use. The mice like the kitchen because thatís where the food is. Mice come out at night so I would put the glue board up against the base boards trim in the kitchen. I would even cut the edge off the board so the clue is right next to the wall. I also found a small hole inside one of the cabinets so I cut off the corner of the glue board. These are the best product I have used---and I have been to all the home centers. Thanks

Work pretty good
By Mark in Danville, PA. on 09/22/2010
I live in the woods, so I get a lot of critters in my house. I have the glue boards in my garage which is where the critters enter the house. They have caught little snakes, insects, and mice. The reason I gave 4 stars is because I have had a couple mice got by the glue board. In at least one occasion the mouse was in the glue when I throw the board outside. Later I went to pick up the glue board and the mouse was gone.

Glue Boards Are Safe
By Foster in Austin, TX on 08/05/2010
With neurological problems and pets (bird & 3 dogs) I do not want insecticides in my home. Placed along baseboards in remote areas, glue boards have been a safe and effective method to eliminate recluse spiders and scorpions in our home.

Used different products over the years. Recently tried the new gimmick trap that looked pretty ingenious, but got no results. Catchmaster got my nuisance mouse the first night. They also worked great getting rid of some ants that seem to make their appearance this time of year. I knew there was another mouse and finally got that one last night in the same spot as the first. No bait, use flat or enclosed. Great item, great value, wouldn't use anything else.

They are not working
By Catalina in Silver Spring, MD on 05/04/2010
I had high expectations but unfortunately..failure. I bought these cause my place of employment was using them for their rodent problem. Well, after one month, neither at my home nor at my workplace, has anyone of these traps caught anything other than dust bunnies and insects. My husband actually saw a mouse scoot through one of these traps without even a whisker getting stuck. They have been ineffective in our battle to get rid of our mice.
It is important to keep these glue boards from getting dusty and full of insects. If the purpose of these boards is to catch mice, you should fold the glueboards so they do not get dusty. If a layer of dust gets on the surface of the glue, they will not be sticky enough to trap a mouse. Also, if the glueboard is catching a lot of insects, then it will deter a mouse from gettting on the glueboard. You can also try a bait in the middle of the glueboard, like some sunflower seeds or a small scoop of chocolate gnutella to entice a rodent on the board. This customer was probably not getting the results they were expecting because they did not switch to newer glueboards after they became dusty and full of insects.

Purchased these traps to hopefully catch basement crickets. I have had great success in reducing my cricket population and recommend these glue boards highly. Easy to use and not at all messy. A great product and fast shipment!

Great for spiders!
By Patti in Gainesville, TX on 08/01/2009
I purchased several of these Catchmaster Glue Boards, putting them in closets, under beds, and other dark areas. After checking them, I saw several spiders that they had trapped. The brown recluse is a particularly dangerous spider, and I did notice a couple of them on these traps! They definitely did their job!

Really like them
By Patrice on 12/05/2006
I really like the boxed Catchmaster glue traps because I can put a few on the shelves behind things and don't have to worry about getting stuck on a trap when taking out food from the pantry.
Have a question about this product?
Ask our product experts...
Ask a Question
QMy dog ate one of the glue boards, will this harm him?
He ate about 1/3 to a 1/2 a box.
AYour dog would have to eat "huge" quantities of the actual glue for there to be any risk of poisoning. As with any non-food item your dog consumes, you should monitor him to be sure everything he ingested passes through his system. If you suspect that the glueboard has not passed within a reasonable amount of time or your pet stops eating, you should contact your vet.
QWhat is the difference between Catchmaster glue boards and Trapper LTD boards?
You advertise both the Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue boards and the Trapper LTD Mouse/Insect Glue boards. Are the uses and results similar?
A Yes, the Catchmaster Glue Boards and the Trapper LTD Glue Boards both serve the same purpose and are used the same way. We sell a large number of both units and do not ever have any complaints. The Catchmaster glueboards are peanut butter scented and the Trapper LTD glueboards are unscented.

QMy pet is stuck to a glue board trap! How do I remove the glue from my dogs paws?
AThe glue from Catchmaster Mouse and Insect Glueboard Trap can be removed using vegetable oil. If you happen to get a lot of oil on your dogs paw getting the glue off, you can remove the vegetable oil by using Dawn or some other degreaser/cleaner.
QIs the peanut butter scent on the Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards 72MB considered an allergen?
ANo. The peanut butter scent on the Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards 72MB is a synthetic scent and no peanuts, peanut oils or peanut product of any kind are used to make the scent.
QHow often should these Catchmaster Glue Boards be changed?
Main purpose; Spider extermination.
AThe glueboards will remain good for a length of time depending on where you place them. They would need to be replaced if either the board becomes full with insects, or it becomes too dusty which will coat the glue and it will not be sticky. Typically you would replace every 30 days.
QCan I use the Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards under my bed?
Is it advisable to put these under a bed? I have them by each bed post, but I didn't realize they were baited. I'm a bit concerned they could attract a spider and it could avoid the trap and crawl up the bed post. Especially, if the trap is too dusty. Any suggestions for bed defense?
AYou did not indicate what pest you are trying to capture with the glue boards but since you mentioned that you were placing the boards by each bed post we will assume that the pest in question is bedbugs. The Catchmaster Glue boards are peanut butter scented to help lure rodents onto the boards but they do not have any special baits or attractants that would lure spiders or any other insect. These boards are most effective when they are placed where insects travel. To help stop the glue from getting too dusty you can fold it up into a box shape (you can see the glue board folded into a box on the Catchmaster glue board page on our website). We do have the Climb-up Interceptor that is made specifically to capture bedbugs as they try to climb on and of the bed and we also have the Catchmaster BDS which is a type of glue board made specifically for bedbugs and they can be placed in small cracks and crevices around your bedframe.
QWe have mice inside our house, evident by the droppings we find. We have 3 small children and we need a good method to remove the mouse problem ASAP with a kid-friendly method. Also, we have an older home and need to seal the outside to prevent further issues. Suggestions?
A For capturing mice in a house, there are many things you can use. Mice usually hide behind appliances and in other areas that kids cannot easily get to. Glue boards and snap traps usually work really well. Of course, you would not want to place these in the open where the kids could access them. We also carry live catch traps which you can place in areas that are not so confined as there is nothing that the kids could get hurt from or stuck on. As far as exclusion, you should use whatever method necessary to close all openings. Expanding foam is often used but mice can chew through this foam which is why you should use Stuf-Fit copper mesh in the holes before foaming.

QWhat are the small red crawling bugs I see in my bathroom? I have cats and live in a condo.
What would be safe and easy to use?
AFor a proper identification we recommend using glue boards to gather a sample of the insect and take it to your local extension office in your county. The local extension office can do a free identification of the insect for you. Without knowing exactly what type of insect you are treating we are unable to recommend any products to you. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

QDo you have a product that gets rid of Bufo Toads?
A There are no toxic products labeled for frogs or toads (or reptiles for that matter), and given the highly beneficial nature of these amphibians there is not likely to be anything coming along.The reasons they are on your property are because they can find food and proper habitat, and these are probably your only means for making them go away. Take away their food and they will forage somewhere else. Take away the conditions they need for hiding all day and they will seek refuge someplace else. Habitat modification may be the more effective way to limit frogs on your property. Frogs are mainly nocturnal, and they seek food at night when it is cooler and damper. During the day they look for cool, damp, dark places to hide. They will hide under dense shrubbery or ground covers, under logs or lumber on the soil, or under large landscape rocks and timbers to avoid the hot, dry sun. Trim shrubbery, remove thick ground-cover, stack lumber or firewood off of the soil a few inches and remove any other objects or debris that come in contact with the soil and can provide harborage. Limit watering to help eliminate moisture from your yard.†You can also reduce the amount of insects (the frogs food source) in your yard by treating the grass with a residual insecticide such as†Talstar PL.

QI've been finding crickets inside my apartment somehow coming in from outside.
Thinking of using these traps but will they lure more crickets inside the apartment or just the ones already in? I don't want to attract any more unwanted pests...
AThe Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards 72MB have a peanut butter fragrance and will catch grasshoppers. They will not attract more grasshoppers into the home. It is onlyused to catch the pests that are currently there.
