Products, products, products…or why we need a bigger warehouse!
So as promised in my last post, let’s take a quick look see at one product type or category just to see how diverse this little mouse catching job is.
There are 4 main ways to control mice, besides ensuring they don’t enter the property. Buy a cat. Catch them on glue boards. Use rodenticides. Or trap the little buggers. And here you can use snap traps for an immediately lethal solution, or use live traps.
Those in the Industry are familiar with the product category known as “multi-catch” mouse bait stations. Simply put a trap designed to catch more than one mouse, as a live trap. Mouse walks in….can’t get out. His friend Bill joins him…and so on…and so on.
This “concept” was started by Victor (now Woodstream) with the Victor Tin Cat. Isn’t that a great name! Tin Cat…lets you know right off the bat what you’re buying.
Of course since then more companies have jumped on the concept and we have a plethora of products in the market. I’ve taken the trouble to list out the ones we have available below, and yes we have these in stock (and I’m even missing some I bet).
- VICTOR TIN CAT
- KETCH ALL TRAP
- EATONS REPEATER MOUSE TRAP
- EATONS L’IL PETE MOUSE TRAP
- KWIK KATCH MOUSE TRAPS
- PRO-KETCH MOUSE TRAPS
- VICTOR POLYCATS
- C/M MULTI-CATCH
- KNESS SLIM KETCH (NEW) – So new I named it myself
If you follow the link below, you should come upon our web page with some, not all, of our various rodent bait stations.
Now here’s the kicker…
Take the list above and multiply it by the following “options”:
Clear lid or solid lid
Black, or white, or unpainted (galvanized)
And what have you got? The list above turns into 45 different products!!!!!!
Maybe you want them private labeled with your company name or logo?
All based on one concept. All available, in stock, ready to go.
So ask me….”Which one works the best?”
To be truthful I can take any of the traps in just about any of the combo’s and make them work.
So why do we stock so many? That’s a great question. Maybe we don’t have to BUT, my customers want variety and each has a different preference…and my customers come first. I can sell the benefits of one over the other, the price points, or other small differences, and drop some of the lines. But if I can make them available, then why not?
So my actual and personal preference? If I had to choose? Forced at gun point?
That would be….
