One of the methods we use for pest control is trapping. There are multiple types of traps, both lethal and live catching, that can be used for mice. These include:
Snap Traps- Snap traps have been on the market for more than 100 years. They work by baiting the mice to step on a trigger that will trap them. While they are good for quick removal, they must be placed appropriately, or they will be ineffective. They are also less effective on large infestations as, once they have snapped, they are rendered ineffective until reset.
Multiple Catch Traps- This is a live-catch trap which can capture up to 30 mice at once. The mice go in through the one opening and cannot get back out through it. It is great for small invasions and in areas where children and pets reside.
Glue Traps – These are the least humane method of trapping mice as they cause mice to get stuck and either suffocate or starve to death.
Electric Traps- Mice that enter an electric trap are delivered a high voltage shock that kills them quickly and humanely.
Why Use a Professional?
While setting traps may seem like something you can do yourself, traps don’t always eliminate entire populations. A professional will know which trap will work most effectively for your specific situation. In addition, they will be well versed in the behavior patterns of mice, helping them to know exactly when and where to place the traps to illicit the most success.
