Tips for Mouse Traps and Rat Traps
Rodents enter a home through holes the size of a dime and run along walls, not over open spaces.
- Place mouse traps perpendicular to the wall.
- Place mouse traps unset for a few days so rodents can become familiar with it.
- Place mouse traps where rodent activity is seen (sign of chewing, droppings, runway, burrow).
- Leave mouse traps undisturbed for at least two days before moving to a new location.
- Check mouse traps daily and replace bait as needed.
- Wear gloves when disposing of rodent.
