What is your opinion of the use of glue boards inside multi-catch rodent traps? I see them as being important, especially in warehousing, to monitor insects and spiders. However, I notice more and more companies are not using them at all. Other than some attractants, I don't see a benefit from the boards related to catching mice. Should we use them or lose them?
