Trapped Like Rats: Effective Tips On Pest Prevention

Nobody wants a rodent problem. Whether it be rats or mice, it will quickly get out of hand. If you are not prepared, that is. The best way to avoid a pest problem is preparedness. As long as you know how to handle the problem, it will surely be less stressful.

If you own a restaurant, this is a concern that sits at the back of your mind. If it did happen however, you would want the best you can get. When you consider the risk to somebody’s health, or your businesses reputation, mouse traps that work are money well spent.

Mouse Traps

These are among the most common of traps that are purchased. Some new iterations include Glue Traps. These type of traps are non-lethal. The mouse is simply stuck in place, while it waits for pick-up. The amount of mice traps you use will depend on your level of infestation.

For the next type of mouse trap, we have the Clean Kill mouse traps. These mice traps will kill the mouse. Like the name states, it will do so in a humane way. I personally have used this kind. I chose them since it got rid of the pest, instead of having the chance of a revisit.

If you are not into picking up the mess, there are Bait Chunks designed to bait, then poison the mouse. You will not have any blood to deal with, or other mess, just the body. There are many brands of these to choose from, so pick the most effective one that you can find.

The only thing we are concerned about here are mouse traps that work. These are just a few of the many types of traps out there. It is up to you to decide the best option for your home or business.

Rat Traps

There is no shortage of variety here either. Some of the best rat traps are electric nowadays. These traps work for mice too, it’s just the size is more suited to rats. These traps deliver 8,500 volts, (typically) to make sure even the largest of rats are dealt with.

For catch and release, you can purchase cage traps. These types will leave the animal unharmed, and are the most humane. Like mice, rats breed very quickly.

That is why it is always best to act fast. If there is even a hint of an infestation, you need to take action.

These are probably the best bet when it comes to rat disposal by hand. If you really want to be sure though, a professional exterminator is the best way to go. Make sure that you hire one who is certified and licensed. It does not hurt to ask if they back their work with a warranty either.
