RAT AND MICE HABITS
1. Rats tend to be cautious and mice are more curious. 2. Rats tend to eat most of their food at one time. 3. Mice while being nibblers eating many times at different places. 4. It is important to remove their food sources-but do not disturb the rodent habitat, until a complete knockdown and elimination occurs before they could move to another area. 5. A successful rodent control program includes a combination of baiting and trapping for the highest rate of success.
You may also want to consider integrating your program ,with exclusion techniques and a general cleanup ,removal of their hiding places(harboraging areas.). If the population is large, you will want to begin with a high quality rodent bait, to quickly knock down a population and prevent rapid growth.
There are different types of baits to choose from: blocks, pellets, seeds ; each rodent population is different in their preferences, so a little of each is a good choice in bait selections.
When baiting intially , try not to disturb their original habitats or they may run to another area.
After baiting has begun, continue with sanitation procedures, food source removal, and harborage removal to ensure additional rodents from nearby areas are not attracted to your location
