Why use mouse poison to solve a mouse issue instead of other methods?
The reason why it is common to use mouse poison primarily is that it more efficiently provides a pest-free environment. The weakness of using devices such as snap traps and glueboards is that you will only capture a handful of mice at a time.
Will I have odour issues?
When a mouse dies in a structure using rodenticides, you don’t have a choice where the mouse dies. In most cases, mice are like you and I — when they don’t feel well they will return to the nesting site. The nesting site can be in a wall void, roof void, burrow outside, etc. In some instances, mice will die in open areas such as on the kitchen floor. The mouse usually only smells if it dies next to a heat source such as a hot water tank, the furnace, or the motor of the fridge. Fortunately, odour issues are very few and far between.
Why didn’t my mouse treatment work?
Eliminating mice from the interior of a structure is straight-forward in the pest control world. Some of the reasons for reoccurring mouse infestations include, but aren’t limited to, our personal habits. This includes leaving doors open in the summer months, storing grass or birdseed being in the garage and keeping excessive amounts of personal items on the exterior of the property. These habits allow a greater number of hiding spots for mice. Rodent programs focus, for the most part, on eliminating mice on the interior of a building. But paying mind to the exterior, and surrounding areas, minimize mouse problems moving forward.
How do I know if I have a mouse or a squirrel in a wall void?
Knock on the wall where you are hearing the noise. If the noise stops, then reoccurs in the same general area within a couple of minutes, it is probably mice due to a freeze response. Larger wildlife tends to have a flight response and will flee disturbance.
