Rodent Trapping Advantages
Rodent Trapping Disadvantages
Trapping may be less cost effective than using rodent baits. Traps are more expensive and require more effort.
Trapping one or two rodents is not enough in rodent control. It is important to kill out the entire population, before they have a chance to increase.
In order for trapping to be successful, it is important to reduce the available food and water supply for the rodents.
Rat Trapping : Same rule applies to trapping rats. Also, rats are extra cautious and can be difficult to trap. Read Trapping Rats for more information
Types of Rodent Traps
Snap Traps: Snap traps are the most popular for rodent control for both rats and mice. Place the traps where the rodents are traveling.
Glue Traps: Glue traps have a sticky substance on either cardboard or paper. They are placed directly in the pathway of the rodent's runway. Glue traps are less costly than snap traps, but can be an inhumane way of trapping a rodent.
