Is DIY Mice Control Effective?

Is DIY Mice Control Effective?While you may have endless access to YouTube videos or several other cheap products from your local hardware shop available to choose from, DIY mice control is rarely an effective endeavor. Even worse, buying the most advanced and effective mouse trap can still be ineffective if you don't follow proper procedures, leading to lost money and a continuing pest problem. In this article, we will look at some of the reasons DIY mice control isn't effective and why you should work with a licensed pest control professional instead.

One of the biggest issues found with mouse traps is that they are often inconsistent unless you have a keen sense of detail throughout the process. For instance, if your scent is on the trap, there's a good chance that the mice will avoid it even if you are offering them top of the line bait. While most people think mice love cheese, they actually are more prone to eating seeds and nuts. Choosing the wrong bait to use in your DIY mice control efforts can be a critical mistake that dooms you from the start.

Trap placement will also play a prominent role in how successful DIY mice control efforts may be. This requires a knowledge of the routes that mice are actively taking and putting the traps as close to the walls as possible in high traffic areas. It is also important to ensure that you are using the correct amount of traps, too little and you may find that they are springing as you had hoped. For this reason, working with a professional pest control provider will likely be the best approach to ensure all facets of the process are covered to achieve the best outcome possible.
