PETA Humane Products for Unwelcome "House Guests"
PETA is know for the advocacy for animal rights. It only makes sense PETA would provide humane traps for household pests. We were sent three of these products to try:
Frog Saver Lily Pad:
Save the rain forests! Save the whales! Save the frogs? You bet! This ingenious "lily pad" gives frogs just the leg up they need to prevent them from drowning in swimming pools. Snapped onto the pool ladder or attached to the wall, the Frog Saver helps frogs, lizards, and other small animals.
Humane Bug Catcher
If you're a compassionate person who wouldn't hurt a fly and your motto is "live and let live," even when it comes to tiny, six-legged, uninvited house guests, then this humane bug catcher is for you! Complete with a plastic sliding door and housing to safely contain the insect, the bug catcher makes the transport from your home to outdoors simple.
Humane Smart Mousetrap
When tiny guests stop by, turn compassion into action. Plastic trap catches mice alive and unharmed so they can be released outdoors. Be sure to check the trap frequently, so mice won't suffer needlessly. Each trap is reusable so that you can catch and release each mouse for relocation. We will enclose our Humane Control of Mice and Rats tip sheet with every order.
Glue traps are among the cruelest pest-control devices on the market today.
Personally, I think these products are like trinkets. My father says the frogs get out of his pool just fine using the ladder, and I catch bugs easily enough without a plastic device. Wasps I kill. Sorry PETA. My solution for mice is a cat.
That being said, the bug catcher is actually cool for collecting bug species outside for viewing and identifying. Sure it is not the intended use, but it entertains and educates my kids.
Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review be positive or negative.
