Infestations of mice spread illnesses, contaminate food, and cause property damage. As such, there are many commercially available traps that aid in the elimination of the pests. Common methods of control include snap traps, glue traps, and poison baits. However, all of these traps must be employed correctly in order to be effective. For example, snap traps need to be placed in areas of high mouse traffic, but mice are traditionally wary of new objects in their environment. For this reason, snap traps are unpredictably useful. Glue boards work similarly to fly paper, and need to be replaced constantly. Poison baits are perhaps the most practical store-bought method, but they can be accidentally ingested by pets and children.
Need for Professional Mouse Control
Since do-it-yourself mouse trapping efforts are only erratically effective and the disposal of trapped rodents can be dangerous, homeowners dealing with infestations of mice should contact professional pest removal services. Critter Control technicians catch and eliminate mice, as well as disinfect and sanitize affected areas.
