Victor® Rodent and Boy Scouts of America Team Up in Mouse Trap Car Competition
Lititz, PA—Nov. 21, 2012—Victor®, a world leader in rodent control, recently donated hundreds of the company’s bestselling wood snap mouse traps to support a Mouse Trap Car Competition at the Boy Scouts of America St. Clair District Fall Camporee. The 2-day event, held at Scott Air Force Base in Shiloh, IL, focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities and competitions.
“One of STEM’s designated Engineering activities is making mouse trap cars using wooden snap traps,” says Darlene Menietti, Boy Scouts of America St. Clair District Activity Chair. “Our funding for this activity was basically non-existent, so we were thrilled when Victor offered to donate the mouse traps for our car competition.”
More than 150 Mouse Trap Cars were assembled by the Boy Scouts with Victor’s wood-based wire snap traps. “The Victor® snap traps donated for the Mouse Trap Car Competition are constructed from FSC wood that originated from environmentally controlled and certified forests” says Andrea Vogel, Victor Category Development Associate. “And, they are made in the USA which we know is important to the Boy Scouts. Like Victor, they support working towards the good of our country.”
For more than 100 years, Victor’s superior built wood-based wire snap traps have been used to effectively control mice and are now the top selling mouse trap in the world. The traps require no chemicals or poisons and are safe to use around, children and pets.
