How to Kill Mice: Traps vs. Baits
The method you choose to get rid of mice depends on your own needs and preferences. Tomcat® offers a wide range of rodent solutions to fit your individual scenario. Can you stand seeing the mouse once it's caught? Do you want to see evidence that it's dead? Fortunately, you have options. There are products that take advantage of a mouse's natural curiosity and need to scavenge for food. Traps can be baited with peanut butter or Tomcat® Attractant Gel to lure the mouse in for capture. They provide evidence of an effective capture or kill to track behavior as well. There are several different kinds of traps, and each provides unique benefits for rodent control. If you don't want to see the mouse after it's dead, try the Tomcat® Spin Trap for Mice. If you don't mind seeing the mouse once it's dead, try the easy-to-use Tomcat® Press 'N Set® Mouse Trap. If you prefer a catch-and-release option, use the Tomcat® Single Live Catch Mouse Trap. All of these traps are extremely effective when it comes to getting rid of mice in the house.
Mouse bait is placed in a bait station where the mouse enters, nibbles on the bait block, then leaves, and usually dies in its nest within 1 to 2 days. (It will not remain in the station.) Bait stations are available in child- and dog-resistant, like the Tomcat® Mouse Killer Child & Dog Resistant, Disposable Station. The child- and dog-resistant stations can be used indoors or outdoors, while the child resistant stations are intended for indoor use only. Bait stations come in disposable, for smaller problems, or refillable, for large infestations. The good news is, each 1-oz. bait block in a Tomcat® Mouse Killer bait station kills a lot of mice* (up to 12)!
