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 are effective for at least one year and are 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. 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 rodent 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.

Got better results than with other products
By Elliot on May 5, 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.

Not much luck with Glue Boards
By Regina on May 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.

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.

Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards - CASE 72 boards
By Gary on October 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
By Richard on March 3, 2014
Very good for trapping silver fish. They are very effective when you find the trail that they are using at night. It will require moving the traps around until you find the right places. Using that method we'd literally eliminated them from our laundry room.
By Vanessa on January 22, 2014
the traps are medium small in size and fits under most areas. Great product

You can't beat free shipping or the price. I don't understand why all the stores around me no longer are carrying these. I will be back when I need more of these.
These things work

I have been purchasing these insect glue boards for a couple of years and have found them to be great at catching insects, mice, and small snakes in my garage before they have a chance to enter my house.
Catchmaster Mouse/Insect Glue Boards
By Desire on October 29, 2013
Oh my gash, these blue boards are without comparison! They are really effective and work really well. To kill roaches in my house, I tried many times Raid fogger, Raid spray, and two more products in vain. None of the worked as CATCHMASTER. I still have some roaches, but I hope they will be gone soon.
By Alicia on October 23, 2013
The product is working and the problem is getting better now. Will keep using them every month to control the insect problem. Thank you.
insect glue board
By Betty on October 22, 2013
I put these in my garage and all around behind furniture in my house. love these in place of spraying chemicals.
By Gee on September 26, 2013
These are always so helpful because they do not bate but they trap...the bates can be annoying because it feels like they almost attract them and when the roaches become immune they stop working. The sticky traps are the best I keep them by the prone places and they are VERY EFFECTIVE.

I bought these glue boards for the hobo spiders in our basement/garage. In the past few weeks, the 12 boards I put out have caught about 10 hobos and lots of other little bugs. Some hobos only got a few legs in, but it held them tight. I'm a believer. By the way, we had Terminix treat our house in Texas for the past 3 years (we just moved) and this is what they put in our garage.

We keep these glue boards neatly tucked out of sight in every corner of our garage plus near the doors, and its amazing all the bugs and mice we have stopped at entry points. Very neat if you do not care to use chemicals. Wouldn't be without them. Works great in the garden as well. Just be sure they don't get wet. At one point we were overrun with lizards and now have them under control.

December 28, 2010Robert asked:
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.
August 24, 2009Sue asked:
QWhat is the difference between Catchmaster glue boards and Trapper LTD boards?

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.

June 18, 2010Eric asked:
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.
October 6, 2009Janet asked:
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.
February 4, 2011Alan asked:
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.
