 Rodent Prevention Tips

 The cool air of fall and approaching winter can bring in unwanted pests, like mice, who are searching for a warm haven from the harsh weather. Before mice can make their way into your home, mouse proof your residence so that the only guests you have for the holidays are the two legged kind.  

  • Even a hole the size of a dime, can allow mice access to your home. Be sure to seal any cracks and crevices around your home, and be sure to check your foundation and around pipes and utility wires
  • Shrubs and trees that are near your home are an excellent invitation to mice and pests. Keep them neatly trimmed and with no branches touching the structure.
  • Try using crushed rock around your foundation, since mice do not like to walk on uneven surfaces
  • Don't store boxes and other containers on the floor and use plastic bins with sealed lids, instead of card board or open topped units. If you have areas that aren't frequently used, be sure to keep them neat and regularly inspected for signs of rodents
  • As always, seal any leaks in and around your home so rodents do not have access to water
  • Pet food should never be left out or in bags, they're like a mouse buffet. Keep them tightly sealed in hard plastic or metal bins

 

 

Treatment Options for Randy Rodents!

Snap traps: Snap traps are the tried and true mechanics for your mouse control and elimination. Mouse snap traps have been used for centuries. The theory has not changed, but science behind the machine has continued to improve. With better technology and higher grade products mouse snap traps can and will work successfully on any number of mice. Snap traps should be placed in area that are attractive to mice, but out of reach of children and pets. When baiting a snap trap, be sure to use something that has a strong aroma and will not turn rancid quickly. Mice are attracted to fats, sweets, and grains. You can try Tootsie Rolls, or maple syrup.

 

Rodenticides: Rodenticides are pesticides that kill rodents and our modern rodenticides can be broken down into two broad group: anticoagulants and non-anticoagulants. Anticoagulants cause the mouse to die over a few days and don't allow them to associate the illness with the bait.

 

Exclusion Products:Making your house rodent proof is the process of denying mice entry into a building or home by improving the building integrity. This can be difficult with mice since they can enter in a space small as a pinky finger. Mouse exclusion is the best long term and cost effective method of rodent control, taking the time to do it right and thoroughly can save you lots of frustration down the line. One of the best mouse exclusion products is copper mesh. Copper mesh should be used when trying to prevent entry into a hole and opening. Rodents do not have the ability to chew or gnaw through the copper mesh fibers.

 

GlueTraps: Glue products can be tossed in the trash after use. Glue boards can be purchased scented and unscented and can be placed in the rats environment covered or uncovered. Glue traps can be placed in runways and use to trap rats and mice. They are easy to use, nontoxic and will get great results. There are also glue traps that are enclosed making trap retrieval and disposal easier for the DIY pest controller. You can place traps under sinks or over open top cabinets as a maintenance tool for the stray mouse that may wander in.
