Mice Control in Colorado
Mice can fit through an opening with just the diameter length of a dime. It’s no wonder why homeowners are often baffled as to how they snuck inside. Mice control in Colorado can sometimes be part of a regular pest control maintenance program. Many homes in our area suffer from a mice problem due to the rapid drop in outside temperatures. During cooler months, mice look for shelter and warmth as well as food since food under snow is scarce and difficult to find.
Professional mice control usually includes strategically positioning traps and/or bait stations in areas that are most likely to receive traffic by mice. This includes strategically placing traps along baseboards and near possible entry points. There are many types of attractants that can be used to lure a mouse to a trap and some are received better than others by mice and pack rats. RAM Pest Control can lure in even the shyest of rodents. Mice control traps come in three types.
- Snap traps: These have been around forever and are very effective when positioned correctly. They should be positioned perpendicular to the wall so the bar snaps toward the wall.
- Glue boards: These consist of flat plastic surfaces with a sticky adhesive on the top. When mice run and connect with the glue board, they are stuck and cannot escape.
- Multicatch traps: These are larger units strategically placed with an attractant inside. Once a mouse enters to feed, they cannot exit and are trapped.
Each of these types of traps is commonly used by RAM Pest Control service technicians when performing mice control in Colorado.
