HOW TO SET A MOUSETRAP
Whether they’re in the kitchen cooking up culinary classics or rescuing children in distress, anthropomorphic rats and mice have made their mark in the world of cinema and in our hearts. But don’t be fooled—rodents can’t possibly cook us fancy meals or have the wherewithal to carry out a rescue mission. (Or, uh, can they?) Contrary to the heroic agenda Hollywood has created around these little creatures, rodents haven’t really done any good for us throughout history (*cough* bubonic plague *cough*).To get more news about Rat Glue Board, you can visit senpinghz.com official website.
While pet rats might be cuddly and cute, commensal rodents—including roof rats, Norway rats, and house mice—that infiltrate your home or business aren’t doing so to become your new kid brother. Rather, they are seeking out warmth, shelter, and a veritable smorgasbord of food to survive winter and propagate their species.
Unfortunately, once rodents have moved into your space, you can’t simply call up a Lyft and send them on their merry way. Adopting a new cat probably won’t work in your favor, either. (Just ask Tom.) Thankfully, our team at Lloyd Pest Control can help you learn how to bait and set a mousetrap properly, as well as guide you on the types of traps that can end up doing more harm than good.
As the classic saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” In business since 1898, Victor® has provided snap traps that are simple, utilitarian, cost-effective, and get the job done fast. An efficient way to get rid of rodents without using poison, snap traps feature spring-loaded pedals and arm bars that are triggered once a mouse encounters the bait.
Contrary to popular belief, mice and rats prefer high-protein, oily baits—such as peanut butter—rather than cheese. Additionally, peanut butter works best when you sprinkle a small amount of dry oatmeal on top of it, as rodents will be attracted to both the smell of peanut butter and the grains of the oatmeal.
When it comes to indoor rodent infestations, using poisonous baits can cause more problems than they solve. When a rodent ingests poison, they will journey back to their nest—oftentimes within your walls—and die.
Because it’s extremely difficult to source these dead rodents, their stench can emanate throughout your space for days on end. If you have pets or children in your home, poisonous baits can also pose a great deal of danger to their well-being, so it’s best to avoid them at all costs.
Traditional snap mouse traps should be placed perpendicular to walls or baseboards, ensuring a mouse can be caught no matter which direction it’s coming from. Mice have poor eyesight and use their whiskers to feel around, hugging the walls to keep their bearings as they scavenge for food or seek out shelter.
