Ketch-All Mouse Trap Review
The Ketch All Mouse Trap is a one of a kind device, is it all it’s hyped up to be?
The only live mouse trap that I have ever seen which can catch multiple intruders at once.
This is a fascinating device, with a really strange misspelling of the name. I will admit that I have never personally used the Ketch All but I’ve spent a lot of time researching it and I feel like it could be a good choice if you have a certain kind of infestation.
A one-way door allows multiple mice to enter, but none to leave.
If you’re in a situation where you have a large number of mice running around, such as on a farm or a rural area, this can be a real godsend. Like all live trapping, make sure to check once or preferably twice a day to see what you have caught. Remember, if your intention is to let the critters live, you need to ensure that they are relocated before they run out of food and water stock in this box.
I find this little hard to believe, but apparently you do not even need to bait this trap. Mice are attracted to the holes in the side of the box, and their inquisitive nature allows them to go inside in search of shelter. Once they pass through the side panel, they fall inside, kind of like a pitcher-plant traps flies. In here, they will be trapped but mostly unharmed, until such time that you come by to decide their fate.
Hybrid between kill and no-kill trapping
I classify this as a live humane trap in my comparison chart, but in reality it’s more of a hybrid device that many users will actually use as a staging area for a kill solution. In fact the maker of this trap sells a add on drowning chamber which attaches directly and sections the mice into a small jar where they meet their end.
I’m not really a big fan of drowning, as I don’t think it is a humane way to deal with your rodent problem. I understand that sometimes a lethal solution is the most practical, but I think a good quality snap trap that can provide a quick and painless snapping is preferable to a drowning. At least for humans, scientists say that drowning is one of the most painful waste to die, so I personally would not inflict that and on
At least for humans, scientists say that drowning is one of the most painful waste to die, so I personally would not inflict that and on another living creature.
By the way, I’m not judging anyone or their morals. I know that it is not an easy decision for anyone to make, and you need to do what you need to, in order to ensure the safety and health of your family.
Doom and gloom aside, I think that this multiple animal chamber could serve a great use as a catch and release shelter, which could fit up to a dozen small critters at a time.
