# How To Make A Bait Trap - Survival Kit Checklist

Different types of do not really need different baits. What will work for one trap will, by and large, work for all types of traps. However, there is one thing that all bait for traps should have in common; they should be sticky, and not solid.

With electronic traps and humane trap and release types, always place the bait as far into the trap as possible, right up to the far end. These type of traps depend on the mouse entering the trap far enough to complete an electric circuit, in the case of electronic traps, and triggering a mechanism that will close the door and prevent escape, in the case of humane traps.
If the mouse can get at the bait without entering the trap far enough to trigger the trap, then it will simply eat the bait and go away, thereby negating the reason for baiting the trap in the first place.
