Comments on: To Catch Or To Kill, That Is the Question http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/03/to-catch-or-to-kill-that-is-the-question/ The EPA Blog Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:49:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Andy Miles http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2010/03/to-catch-or-to-kill-that-is-the-question/#comment-17745 Sat, 23 Nov 2013 00:04:34 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1351#comment-17745 My main concern is to do it humanely whether you choose to kill or to catch. This brings me to the point of using GLUE TRAP. Glue trap is a cruel way to kill/catch animals.

Have you tried just baiting the area with some Mouse Poison covered in peanut butter? I have done this a few times and it has taken care of the problem within a matter of days.

In areas where the use of chemical baits is prohibited or it is a chemical sensitive location, baits is not always the best method to use for rat control.

Before professionals choose poisons and products with toxic chemicals, they will choose traps to honor the safety of your home. Not only are traps effective in mouse control, but mouse traps are economical in that they do not cost a lot of money to buyTo

The just work. We used the giant, well its not really that big, but big enough, multi kill in our garage. Now the animal foods we keep outside are rodent free. We had them in containers, but those stinky mice chewed right through them. Thanks for your story.

The only time I can truly say these creatures should be caught is when we are dealing with an offshoot of their genetic family such as guinea pigs, hamsters, dwarf hamsters, gerbils, or any of the burrowing rodents we use as pets.

I would never use poison because as previously stated the cats would probably get into it.
I would do nothing, because the cats would, left to their own devices, take care of the problem. I know mine do. I haven’t had a bad mouse problem since i’ve had my 3 cats. Every now and then, we get a stray mouse or two, but it is quickly taken care of by my cats. So don’t panic, let your cats do the job. They will if they are truly cats and not dogs in disguise.

They want to release the mouse alive. Luckily they were able to do so, but I didn’t approach the vermin with a 10 nor 20 ft pole!

Electric shock traps are the most humane way of killing mice. That new Victor-Multi Kill traps seems to be pretty popular.
