    Catching Mouse-dini

    I have a situation where a mouse has been able to escape my glue traps and avoid activating my snap traps. What alternate methods can I use?

    Blowing Smoke

    I've been doing a rat job in Riverside, CA for over a year. I've done the exclusion work and activity stopped for a couple of weeks and calms down every now and then, but they continue to get rats in the attic. I've caught over 20 rats. The owner, property management and another pest management company have tried and we still can’t find the entry point. What else can we do?

    Rat Season

    When trapping or applying rodenticides in a void that is totally dark, does adding some illumination enhance the process? Will rats find and interact with the traps better if there is some light compared to using only their whiskers and body hairs to explore the dark environment?

    Seal the Deal

    I'm about to start a rather large rat exclusion job. What would you suggest I use? Mallis says 26-gauge sheet metal, but I'm having a hard time finding it in large quantities at a reasonable price.

    Remedies That Don’t Work

    I come across rodent problems every day and hear all kinds of things, including using moth balls or mint leaves to keep mice and rats away. Are these things true? If not, why are there companies making mint trash bags? Are there other “remedies” like these that work?

    You Can Lead a Rodent to Water…

    I have an idea to apply salt to standing water outside of a granary, as it would be easier and more cost effective than doing the dirty work necessary for better runoff at this point. My hope is that the salt water will not be used by the rodents, which will further my success with liquid bait stations. What do you think?

    Fur Conditioner

    We are servicing a house with a mouse problem. At first, we used glue boards and they were very effective at catching and managing the mice. But lately, they seem to be avoiding all glue boards and the problem is worsening. We are thinking of changing to snap traps to see if they will make a difference. Is there another suggestion of what we should do to help stem the tide of mice? Baiting...

    Persistent Mice

    I have a home that keeps getting mice. I have caught 6. I don't like to use baits but I am at that time where I need to do something else. I plugged all holes and the house was vacant for a long time.

    A Log is Good Evidence

    What will be your recommendation about dating rodent control devices for a weekly service in a non-food warehouse? Should we do it every visit and what will be the benefit behind that? Thanks

    The Bigger Picture

    Rodents are not going into a bait station and consuming bait. They go around and over it. How can I control activity? I’ve used Contrac Blox and soft bait.

    I have been dealing with an ongoing roof rat issue at a pet store in a strip mall. I've tried T-Rex traps baited with a wide variety of baits including the dog food they eat the most. I catch some on glue traps but just young ones. The adults avoid all traps and the problem is getting worse. Another company services the strip mall and I only service the pet store. Any suggestions?

    Squirrels with Non-Bushy Tails

    I have a customer with a roof rat infestation that I seemed to have under control, but in the last two months the problem has come back. To give you an idea of what’s going on, the house itself has no heavy vegetation around, just grass. I have sealed up every entry point that I could find. I also have four bait stations around the perimeter that have had no activity. There is heavy activit...

    Down and Out

    What would you recommend to prevent rodents from burrowing down into a crawlspace from the outside? If they have already done so, what is the best way to exclude them? I've heard of using screening in an L shape along the foundation as well as trenching gravel along the perimeter.

    If a home has dogs and they have a rodent problem and we bait using a rodenticide, what happens if the rodents die from the rodenticide and the dogs eat the dead rodents? Will the dogs be affected? Will the dogs die?
