Will The Maker Of Glue Traps Please Take A Bow
Now I was "called down" once before here for using inhumane sticky traps. I have only caught one mouse on one, but when I caught the largest Scorpion I have ever seen I thought if I had stepped on that bugger it would have been mighty inhumane. They hurt, especially when you put your full weight down on one. I have been fighting ants coming into my house this summer. Not sugar ants, not fire ants, or big red ants. I'm not sure what they are. They are between the size of red ants and sugar ants, medium size. They are very dark in color, almost black. When I find where they have been coming in near a window, I spray and clean up the next day. then put a couple of sticky traps in that area. Just for good measure I put one behind each toilet. Today when I went into the guest bathroom I noticed something black on the floor. Thinking I had dropped something behind the toilet I took a closer look. It was a very black glue trap. Humm I don't remember buying any black ones. They had red on them. When I picked it up it was completely covered with those ants. There wasn't room for one more to fit, they were coloring the entire trap making it black all over. I'll be heading to Walmart tomorrow, may just buy a case of glue traps.
