The Big Cheese Snap Trap Alert is an audio-visual catch indicator that works alongside rodent pest traps that catch mice and rats. It is suited for use wherever traps are set in homes and outbuildings, especially in hard to reach areas such as cupboards, loft spaces, basements, garages and sheds. A beep is emitted and the LED light on the front of the device flashes every 40 seconds to alert that a trap has been triggered.

Works Alongside Rodent Traps
Perfect for use where traps are located in hard to reach areas such as cupboards, lofts, basements, garages, sheds and outbuildings. Snap Trap Alert signals when a rat or mouse trap has been triggered. Traps to be purchased separately.
Visual and Audio Alert
nap Trap Alert emits a beep and the LED light on the front of the unit flashes every 40 seconds to alert that a trap which may otherwise remain undiscovered for days has been triggered.
Easy to Use
Insert 2 x AAA batteries into the back of the unit (batteries not included). Set trap(s) and place Snap Trap Alert within a 2 metre radius of each other (trap(s) not included). Turn the unit on using the side switch; an audible sound will emit a beep for 2 seconds to indicate the unit is ready. Once Snap Trap Alert hears the trap spring, the unit will emit an audible beep every 40 seconds and the LED light on the front will flash. To reset turn unit off and back on. Indoor use only.
Mice are a highly adaptive and invasive species and they’re able to populate a variety of ecosystems. Agricultural fields, buildings, and boats are all viable habitats. In more temperate climates there will be even more possible nest sites. Swimming, climbing, jumping proficiency, and the two incisors on their upper jaw, all make for a formidable predator wherever they reside. However, despite all of these amazing abilities, the house mouse chooses to reside, as its name would indicate, in a home. House mice (Mus Musculus Domesticus) are a highly adaptive member of the genus Mus (mouse), yet for some reason they choose to live in the least demanding environment, a human home. They are attracted by the continuous flow off food and warmth, ideal for nest sites. The offer of food and shelter is so tempting that many choose to stay and breed year-round.
As one can imagine, the palate of a house mouse is highly adaptable since every habitat they migrate through will hold different opportunities for feeding. Outside dwellers will eat insects and a lot of grain, however, inside dwelling mice are practically omnivorous and, just like brown rats, will consume 10-15% of their body weight each day in just about anything we throw away. Most house mice will nibble on multiple different food sources to obtain their required nutrition, up to 20 times each night, since they’re nocturnal. A large proportion of a mouse’s 3g daily intake will be grain, namely cereal, favouring high-energy, man-made foods. Studies have proven that the levels of aggression in both rats and mice can be attributed to this high fat ‘human’ diet they have both been on for so long. These foods increase oestrogen levels and results in a shorter temper and longer periods of aggression.
Evidence of Intrusion
3-6 mm long droppings, black and rod-shaped. Approximately 80 per day, often appearing in clusters. Spotted in various places including attics, storage boxes, floorboards, disused cupboards. Check around fridges, ovens, heating units and washing machines too. Check wood, paper, cables, carpet and furniture for marks. Dark grey marks on surfaces from oil on hair. Although they don’t sweat, they emit a musky odour and urinate a lot, producing an ammonia smell. Hearing pattering feet in walls at night could be a sign of a mouse or rat infestation. If your dog is barking at night at what seems to be nothing, it could be picking up the scent or sounds of rodents.

How does this product work?
The unit is designed to alert the user that a mouse or rat trap has been activated by letting out an audible sound. This is perfect if the trap is in a hard-to-reach area; place the Snap Trap Alert with it and then check the trap only if the Snap Trap is making a noise.
