How to decide between Rodent Baits and Traps

By Walt Cline

When considering rodent control, you generally have a choice between trapping and baiting methods. Baiting is easier, especially for pest control novices, but there is also a chance that a dead smelly rodent will die behind your walls. If that happens, you'll have to wait until the carcass decomposes. If there is potential that the rodent will get stuck in the walls near a common area in your house, you might want to use traps to catch the rodent instead.

Squirrel Control: Unfortunately, there is not a bait labeled for squirrel control. Trapping is the preferred method.

Mole Control: You can choose baiting methods or trapping methods to catch moles. The majority of people choose baits, because baiting is easier.
