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.

- 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.

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!

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.

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
By Jackie in LaGrange Ky on 11/17/2017
I've used these for years. My reason for using them has been for insects but mostly, JUST IN CASE A SNAKE SHOULD FIND IT'S WAY INTO MY GARAGE! Unfortunately a few young ones have met any early death thanks to the sticky boards. I don't like doing that but I don't like them in my garage or house even more. We have copperheads in our area.
By Jerry in milwaukee wi on 11/03/2017
a great source to purchase from and glueboards are a great monitoring tool, just about anything you need can be found here
Excellent eco-friendly product
By Richard in near tulsa, ok on 11/03/2017
We live in a wooded rural area of OK and have seasonal issues with crickets, scorpions, lizards and field mice in our attic. We leave them open for maximum exposure to the critters. In the house, we use the enclosed shape to protect our pets from accidentally getting stuck on them. These pads give us peace of mind and allow us to avoid having the exterminator spray inside the house with chemicals that leave spray stains on the hardwood floors and baseboards.
Easy to use, effective
By Db in TN on 10/20/2017
Use 2-3 cases a year. They will catch mice, spiders, Waterbugs etc. If it crawls they catch it, even snakes.

I have only caught a couple of mice but lots of spiders. Boards do their job
By Glenda in Morgantown, Ky on 08/21/2017
Still in process. I am using these on conjunction with the roach bait to determine when the roach traffic disappears. I reapply the bait weekly. Seems to be working.
Best catchers ever
By Vivianne in West Park on 07/13/2017
These are the best and stickiest traps. Yes, I have stuck myself on them too. I also caught a lizard that the cats were chasing. I have no mice, thank God. When I put the bait around for the roaches, I also placed the glue boards in the same areas and also areas where bugs may try to find a spot to hide. Drawers are a good spot Don't put with clothes unless you want them stuck on. Also, put them with your dvd's and cd's. I found bugs in there. You would be surprised where they will go and you don't suspect a thing. I had a stainless steel knife holder (magnetic) screwed to the wall. No signs of bugs, but I decided to take it down to have a look anyway. Oh, yes, they were there, too. I also put foam made for the electrical plugs behind each one with a little bait on the back of the foam. The plates just don't fit that well against the wall. I am ordering the next bait rotation until I am sure they are GONE.

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.
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.
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.

QHow often should these Catchmaster Glue Boards be changed?
Main purpose; Spider extermination.

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.

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.

QCan I use Catchmaster mouse glueboards outdoors?
I want to put catchmaster glueboards around my house to help catch mice.
