How to Kill a House Mouse
Lethal traps and poisons are used to kill mice in the house. Here we will discuss the types, methods and
effectiveness of some Seaside animal control traps and poisons that can be used to protect your home.
To kill a mouse, lethal traps such as glued surfaces, electronic traps and snap traps are used.
Glued surfaces like cardboard, plastic sheets and wooden pallets are used to catch a mouse. Seaside pest control Glued pads are
installed on the floors or walls. Once glued, mouse cannot move and dies from the lack of food and water.
This method is highly inhumane as mouse suffers from dehydration for a long time. In order to be more humane
electronic traps or snap traps should be considered.
Electronic traps emit electric shock when a mouse steps on it. When a mouse steps on the trap electric shock
makes mouse‘s heart to stop and it kills a rodent instantly. It is more humane than glued surfaces as it does
not leave mouse to suffer. However, the electronic shock devices are quite expensive comparing to traditional,
most effective snap traps.
Snap trap is to be known as the best Seaside wildlife removal trap there is. It is cheap and highly effective. A mouse allured by bait
is quickly snapped by a cradle and mouse dies instantly. It is recommended to put high-calorie, fatty or sweet
bait on the trap to attract a mouse. However, if there are small children or pets at home it should be put in
the places where they could not reach the traps.
Also, poisons are used to kill mice. If a mouse consumes efficient amount of poison it starts bleed internally
and it dies within a week or more. Poisons for mice remind grains but they usually very colorful, for this reason
mice get attracted and eat them. Poisons are put into the cupboards, pantries, storage boxes or any other place where
mice could appear. The worst part of the consumed Seaside animal trapping poisons is that mice may crawl to the walls or under the floors to
die leaving very bad odor which may stay for an upcoming month or more as depending how many mice there were in the house.
All in all, in order to avoid mice in the house, construction and sanitation should be highly considered. However, if
there already are mice in the house the use of snap traps are still considered to be the most effective Seaside exterminator method to kill a mouse.
