Getting rid of roaches is normally a huge reason why people need or want sticky traps. People are always curious on what works best and why? The reason Happy Cornerz sticky traps work the best is because they are multi-purpose and function in your corners (lower corners and upper corners) of any room or environment to capture and get rid of roaches or Any pest for that matter. Snake traps are usually much larger as well as rat glue traps but Happy Cornerz is designed to capture small rodents such as mice (a mouse) when it comes to rodents. Rats are much larger in size.
The Happy Cornerz trap is a 2 dimensional (2D) equilateral triangle with a hole in the center of it. You remove the protective film from the back of the sticky trap and locate a corner high or low (as many corners as possible) and mount the trap flush into the corner. The trap comes equipped with three safe-wall mounting tabs already manufactured on the trap so that your DIY solution is ready to go! The trap will fit flush in 90% of all corners on Earth. This is because the corner trap is designed with 60 degree angles allowing it to pair perfectly with the 90 degree angles of where walls meet the floor and ceilings. This same concept applies for shelves such as books shelves where mice and roaches may travel as well as kitchen cabintes or sink cabinets where cockroaches, mice and ants often raid. The corners of cabinets (both lower and upper corners) are a perfect hot spot for applying the corner traps.
Summary of How to Use Happy Cornerz Sticky Traps?
You will gently press the tips of the triangular trap against the edges that each tip lines up with in a corner. By lining up the three tips of the triangle with the three edges is how you'll align the trap flush with any corner. Pressing the tips will help temporarily adhere the glue trap to the corner safely and secure. The mounting tabs are safe for your walls in order to not harm or hurt wall paint or wall paper. You can bait the corner traps with peanut butter, olives or even your own homemade bait that you'd prefer to use. We always suggest using non-toxic baiting techniques for pests because this is safer for your family and pets.
The bait should be applied to the center strip area of the backside of the Happy Cornerz trap so that the bait avoids contact with the glue / sticky area of the trap. Some baits may interfere with the effectiveness of the glue trap. Once you'd removed the film and pressed the corner trap into a corner you are done!
Monitoring Happy Cornerz Sticky Traps:
You'll want to check each of the corner traps on a daily basis if you have a bad roach infestation, mouse problem or even moderate to bad pest issue. If you are just using the corner traps for monitoring purposes or eliminating small amounts of pests then it's still advised that you check the traps weekly. Cockroaches and ants can raid a home or business overnight. It's like the one thing that does happen overnight in life; a pest invasion!
Quick Tip on The Proper Handling of Sticky Traps:
The easy way to handle sticky traps is by avoiding the glue trap meaning try not to touch or come into contact with the sticky traps glue surface. Fortunately, like with mice or lizzards stuck on the glue traps you can simply remove them and your own clothes or hands, feets (etc) from the trap by applying vegetable oils or baby oil to the area. The oils will act as emulsifiers and seep into the glue while moistening the glue area almost immediately allowing you to remove yourself or a pest from the traps.
How to Remove and Dispose of Sticky Traps? | Happy Cornerz Sticky Traps
To remove the Happy Cornerz sticky traps you are advised to peel away the triangular trap by grabbing any tip of the triangle and removing the trap slowly. The other two tips of the triangle will remove accordingly as you slowly pull the trap away from the corner. When the trap has been removed feel free to examine the trap for pests stuck to it and record your notes prior to disposing of the trap. Proper disposal of all sticky traps includes using a zip lock plastic bag for placing the pest filled trap into. Zip the plastic bag ensuring that the sticky trap is fully enclosed and then throw away the trap / bag into a garbage can or trash bad that is not going to sit for a long period of time. The garge bag or can that you place the trap into needs to be near-ready for dumping or being picked up by a trash truck because rare and unlikely diseases can form and ferment the longer the glue traps lingers with insects and pests stuck to it.
Reusing Sticky Traps:
It is commonly advised to not resuse a sticky trap, glue trap or glue board. The term "reuse" is a bit far fetched however since moving a sticky trap around during the timeframe or cycle it's in use isn't technically "reusing" the trap. Reusing a sticky trap would more so be the act of capturing many insects and pests, monitoring the trap and taking notice of the pests and then re-applying the trap to an area for capturing more pests with or without removing the pevious pests.
In the situation of using Happy Cornerz sticky traps we highly encourage the testing of various corners with the same trap as long as the trap isn't covered or laced with pests already. The goal is to monitor as many corners as possible and generally there are near 75 corners in just a small apartment. Corners are found in many places throughout living environments and businesses so it's important to stock up on enough corner traps to suit your purpose and needs.
In conclusion, can you properly remove Happy Cornerz traps from a corner to be applied to another corner? Yes it is possible with the right steps taken. Here is an image of the corner trap in an upper corner prepared to capture any pest that enters the trap's center hole!
