I’m often asked, what is the best way to get rid of mice? There are a lot of answers to this question, but if I had to choose one, by far the best way to get rid of mice would be with mouse snap traps.
The great thing about snap traps is that mice are very curious and often find the traps very soon after placement. There are two types of mice in CT; field mice and house mice. They can be found in many homes, but wooded areas like Southbury, Ridgefield and Newtown are notorious for rodents. Its due to the wooded surroundings.
- Set traps against walls
- Use peanut butter not cheese
- Set more than one trap in multiple areas
- Dental floss works as bait in houses with peanut allergies. The mice use the floss as nesting material
Whatever method you use to get rid of mice, make sure you get started soon. As you know mice and rodent droppings carry diseases like hantavirus and salmonella.
