Mouse Trap Not Working? Hire a Mouse Control Service

 

mouse traps not workingMice and other rodents are a major problem for homeowners and other property owners. Although they may seem small and harmless, they can cause a lot of damage. It isn’t just their feces that cause problems, either. Mice are a rodent; a word which is derived from the Latin word “rodere”, which means “to gnaw”. Even in a short period of time, the prolific breeding habits of mice means that they can quickly grow in number, leaving droppings in food, and chewing through everything from food containers to boxes and even electrical items and wood. As a result, mouse control is essential to help prevent the problem from getting worse.

 

Traps and Poisons

There is a wide range of mouse control products on the market, including humane mouse traps and baits. These can be loaded with items ranging from cheese to peanut butter, and are designed to enable you to catch mice before releasing them without harming them. Although not everybody’s first choice, poisons will kill the mice, ready for their removal and disposal. Poison is considered one of the most efficient forms of mouse control.

 

Poison Use

If you do use poison, and you have pets or small children, it is essential that you place the poison carefully and use products that are pet safe or pet friendly. Poisons can make people extremely ill, and can leave cats and dogs, and other pets, in a serious condition. Check that poisons are child safe, and consider using other techniques if you are worried about your family pets.

The problem for many homeowners, however, is that even where traps and poisons capture or kill the occasional mouse, they rarely reduce the population by any great number, and an infestation will be allowed to grow once again. Effective mouse control should include some prevention techniques.

 

Food Sources In The Home

The primary reason that trapping and other forms of mouse control are not working in your home, is likely to be because the mice have an abundance of food in cupboards, larders, pantries, and even the bins. If you have pets, then the mice could survive on pet food, and even the scraps that are dropped around food bowls. With so many food sources to choose from, the chance of one of the mice following the scent into any form of trap is lessened.
