Rodent Trapping Tip - Anchor your snap traps to increase catch rates.
When rodents first interact with newly installed traps they often approach and investigate the device from the back and side. As a result, they may inadvertently avoid the deadly trigger. They often push and slide the trap around while inspecting the new item in their environment. Therefore, setting it off without a capture. Another benefit of anchoring your trap is that it optimizes and directs the force generated by the system to maximize killing power. When a snap trap is triggered, energy can be lost as the device reacts. Focusing this energy allows the trap to dispatch the pest in a quick and humane manner.
