The Rodent Trap is a flush-mounted permanently fastened trap for rodents with a discrete appearance.
The use of the Rodent Trap provides a means of hiding traps in a manner which places them in ideal locations, but keeps them inconspicuous as well.
THE STORY BEHIND THE INVENTION
The inventor's circumstances were such that they were required to find a different way to 'draw' mice out of their nests and at a place of their choosing, not the mouse's. Inventors, Vince and James Barto, of Antrim, NH have created a permanently affixed covert mouse trap design that would blend into its surroundings just like a standard smoke/fire/security alarm does.
Nearly every other common mouse trap is placed in a living or work space at a location the mice have been found to travel. The problem with this is ...you are not stopping the mice from getting into your pantries or walking on your floors because you are inviting them in by baiting them there. You shouldnt bait them where you dont want them.
This is the problem that every other mouse trap has not been able to solve. Our trap baits and catches mice where they live, breed and mostly travel... in the walls, ceilings and floors! This trap allows the user to take unsafe and common snap, glue, poison/kill, and electric traps out of pantries, off of stairways, and out of floor corners.
It is easy to manufacture, install, set, and reset. The design can be modified in size, shape or materials used to accommodate residential or any commercial environment.
The trap functions by creating access through mediums such as ceilings (drop ceilings, too), walls or floors and when properly affixed, it draws the rodents from one side to the other and into the trap where they are poisoned or humanely removed from the trap. This is a kill or catch/release trap.
The trap is covert to the unknowing eye. These will most often be mounted to a ceiling or high up on a wall. They are designed to function for the life of the structure in which they are installed. A small, easily repairable hole is all it would take to start catching mice and keep them out of site.
The Inventors also have several add-ons that will help a licensed manufacturer earn repeat business from their customers.
The Barto's look forward to partnering with a manufacturer who sees their vision and the vast market potential for this design.
