are often shy of new objects and placing unset traps
in a new location for a week or two will increase the opportunities
of catching. This will acclimate the rats to the traps, once acclimated,
set enough traps to kill the a large percentage of the population
before the rodents become "trap shy." This is called mass trapping,
trapping them at a higher rate than they can repopulate and become
shy of the trap.
There may be a need to have as many as 2 - 3 dozen
rat traps set in place in a commercial establishment,
in an infested trash room for example. By having these traps baited
with a Rat/Squirrel lure or peanut butter unset, a large population
would be use to feeding on around the traps. When the traps are
then simultaneously set after a while of this "feeding", a large
kill can be obtained.
- The spring
on the rat snap trap is very strong, (it could break
a finger) so keep it out of reach of your pets and small children.

HOUSE MOUSE CONTROL

The adult house mouse is small and slender and about 1-2 inches long,
excluding tail. It has large ears, pointed nose and small eyes. The tail
is as long as the head and body combined. The fur color varies, but it
is usually a light grey or brown, but could be darker shades.
Mice will eat almost anything, but prefer cereal grains, seeds, or sweet
material. They require very little water, obtaining most of their water
needs from their food.
HABITS AND BIOLOGY:
If there are good living conditions(food, water, and shelter),they can
multiply rapidly. They sexually mature in two months, producing about
8 litters in a one year life time. Each litter has 4-7 pups. A house mice
in a city environment may spend it's entire life in buildings. In rural
and suburban settings, it may not only live inside, but be found outside
near foundations, in the shrubbery, weeds, crawl spaces, basements, or
in garages. They survive well on weeds, seeds, or insects, but when their
food supply is shortened by the colder months they move inside nesting
closer to a food supply. They make their nest from soft material like
paper, insulation, or furniture stuffing. These nest are found in many
places including: in walls, ceiling voids, storage boxes, drawers, under
major appliances, or within the upholstery of furniture. Outside the nests
are found in debris or in ground burrows.
Mice while being "nibblers" eating many times at different places, they
do have two main meal times...just before dawn and at dusk...they simply
"snack" at other times at intervals or every 1-2 hours. They can eat about
10 to 15% of their body weight every day, the adults weighing about 5/8 - 1
oz. They get much of there water from food products.
HOUSE MOUSE INSPECTION:
Their droppings(feces)are about 1/8-1/4 inch long, rod shaped. They
gnaw small, clean holes about 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Many times in
kitchens you will find gnawing damage on the corner of boxes and paper,
shredded for their nest. They will gnaw at bar soaps.
