Trapping Mice

A variety of traps can be purchased from most hardware and grocery stores. Two of the most commonly used trap types are jawed or snap traps and glue boards. Snap traps utilize a trigger and bar or jaw to catch and kill the rodent. It may also be effective to place an attractant on traps without setting them for a period of time, thus introducing rodents to the traps without alerting them to the danger. Glue boards employ a sticky glue to trap mice when they attempt to cross it.

The trapping of mice requires a great deal of work on the part of the homeowner. From setting traps to disposing of caught specimens, the process can be daunting, messy and disturbing. Professional extermination methods may be required.
