Traps and poisons are both highly effectiveways of eliminating rodent problems.
Understanding the advanges and uses of eachwill help you as you encounter issues with pests.
Mechanical traps remain the fastest and most reliable solution to control rats and mice.

Traps are time tested and are a top choiceby professionals for fast, effective rodent control.
Traps are naturally alluring to a curious rodent.
If enough traps are put out the first night, it is very likely that you may eliminate yourrodent problem within 24 hours.
Traps are non-toxic, making them safe aroundchildren and pets and come in a variety of options from simple wood snap traps to advancedelectronic traps.
Rodent baits, also known as rodenticides,offer an economical and efficient approach for eliminating large rodent populations.
The most commonly used formulation of rodenticides are pellets and blocks.
Typically, blocks are used in bait stations or secured in one location to prevent rodentsfrom carrying them away.
Pellets encourage the rodent to transfer them.
For this reason, this type of mouse bait is not suggested for use in homes with childrenor pets.
Rodenticides enable effective control or largerodent populations where trapping would be impractical.
Rodenticides are appealing to rodents because they contain a majority of the rodent's naturalfood source.
Baits are mainly composed of grains and seeds;these foods are proven to very appealing and well accepted by most rodents.
Additionally, most rodenticide actives are odorless and tasteless, increasing the appealin palatability of this control method.
Rodenticide active ingredients are formulatedin several ways to provide a wide range of options for controlling rodents in any environment.
Rodent and mouse bait can be used inside or outside and has been proven to appeal to thosepesky creatures.
So that's the basics of rodent traps and poisons.
