Cost of Rodent Control and Mice
Mice and rodents are tricky to catch. They have a way of keeping you guessing, and just
when you think you have them licked, a few more will show up. Here are the best ways
to approach this problem, and how to start.
1. Patience will take you further: Mice can be very curious, which you can use to
your benefit, but they will also wait and watch other members of the family get
caught, and learn from those mistakes. It will be good for you to bait traps, and
not set them initially. If you do this, you may catch even the smart ones the first
2. A few dead bodies: You will need to prepare yourself for dead mice removal. As
brave and sure of yourself as you may be, dead mice make even the most stoic

care of frequently and immediately.
3. Cleaning Up: Simply trashing piles of papers and garbage can do wonders to help
in your pest removal problems. If you are not ready to remove stacks of papers,
you will always have a nesting area, so it is best to prepare yourself for storing
papers off site, or moving them to another address.
4. Snap top Lids: Get your food under wraps! Making sure all food is either in the
fridge, or under a snap top lid container is important. Mice cannot chew through
these containers, and can’t sneak into this type of lid.
5. Buy different traps: You can count on some mice being OK with some traps, and
will not even approach them, and others will be so interesting that they have to
check it out.

spreads like peanut butter are real tempting choices. Mix up the bait, because
what one mouse loves, another would be really unhappy with.
7. Use a dark light: You can see where they are running along, but using a UV light
