DIY Mouse Control
If you are thinking about treating a small mouse infestation on your property yourself, you have an option of using either traps or rodenticides.
The following DIY mouse control products are available to try and eliminate these pests in your home:
- Snap Traps – these are the mouse traps everyone is familiar with. They work by attracting mice with a small bait and then killing them with a swift blow when the bait is taken.
The drawbacks to these mouse traps are that they don’t always kill the mouse (so you might have to finish the job quite often), and they can be very messy.
Snap traps can be an effective non-chemical control method and are generally used where rodenticides (rodent poisons) are not permitted or may pose a hazard or threat to children or pets.
Tips for using Snap Traps:
- use several traps close to each other
- place them close to walls with the trigger plates facing towards the wall, and for the first few days bait them without setting them so that the mice get used to taking the bait with impunity.
- don't place these traps in areas that are not easily accessible to prevent potential odor problems that occur when mice are trapped
- Live / Catch Traps – these traps are bigger and don’t harm the mice. Mice are lured in with bait, and the door locks behind them so they can’t get out.
- However, mice have been known to quickly learn how to beat the system. Even when they are successful, you have to get rid of the live mouse yourself.
- Electronic ‘Zapper’ Traps – similar to catch traps except once inside the mouse is given a fatal electric shock.
- You’ll need a large stock of batteries, and the traps themselves can be quite expensive to buy.
- The Homemade Bucket Trap – a common trap you can make yourself (there are plenty of instructions to be found on the Internet). Basically, mice are lured by bait which is held on a roller above a bucket full of water. As the mice attempt to fetch the bait, they slip into the water and drown. Again, you’ll have to remove the dead mice, and the traps can start to smell quite quickly.
- Glue Boards – also an inexpensive trap, glueboards can catch several mice at the same time.
Some people don’t like them because the mice die of stress or starvation. They can catch other animals by accident so keep them away from pets and children, and again you will have to dispose of the mess.
- Mouse Poison - There are many mouse poisons on the market, and it's best to use them in conjunction with bait boxes so that pets and children can't get at the harmful stuff.
- The biggest problem with poisons is that mice can travel a fair distance between eating the poison bait and it taking effect. This means you may find decomposing mice in hard to reach places.
