I couldn't tell from the description though someone mentioned glue boards in a review. I avoid glue traps or poison because dying in panic or pain over a period of days is not humane, IMO. Would be great to find a multi mouse trap the kills as instantly as spring trap. I've used live traps extensively over the years, but disposal in a place where they don't return to my or someone else's house has become difficult. I guess what I want to know if this is a live or instant kill trap or does it rely on glue poison or other slow-kill method. Thank you in advance for your help!
