If you are searching for a snap trap, this can be a good choice. These traps come in different sizes and varieties. The standard wooden trap with a metal trap is the most common. These wooden traps are usually cheap but are not good in killing since they are not sensitive. The plastic trap is good since you can wash it and reuse, unlike the wooden one. It also has some sharp jaws, which prevent the mouse from escaping. A wooden trap is not effective as it has only one metal clamp. The T-rex trap has higher sensitivity as compared to the wooden one.
