Mouse Glue Traps

We tested the stickiness and firmness of four brands of mouse glue traps with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer using two test methods. The first method was an “adhesive” test which applied a constant force onto the trap, and measured a variety of adhesive and stringiness parameters as the probe withdrew. The second method involved penetrating a constant distance into the traps (generating a consistent surface contact with the probe) to measure the glues’ firmness and adhesiveness.
