If you plan to put up a rodent bait you need to do so depending on the kind of rodent you wish to catch. It could be a problem of your outdoor premises or inside your home. For catching rodents outside is a different approach that one needs to take as compared to pest control for home interiors. When it comes to rodents that infest our homes there are moles, gophers, squirrels, mice and rats. There are different kinds of bait that one could use, which fall in the chemical and non chemical category.
You could opt for a rodenticide or a chemical bait. When one has pets or children it is best to avoid using poison based baits as these tend to pollute the environment and can be hazardous if they contaminate different surfaces. There are rodent bait products that are environmentally safe. What you need to do at the time of choosing a rodent bait is to opt for a product that would be mess free as well as easy to use. When using a rodent bait keep in mind that it should not be accessible to young children or pets that are usually inquisitive. Often the baits come with packaging that is tamper resistant. If you are using poison baits you need to ensure that you place them close to the places where the rodents inhabit your home or premises. It is best to use the bait and a trap at the same time.
Rodent poisons come in seed or pellet form. Seeds are usually scattered by the rodent which results in a mess that needs to be cleaned up. A common or a safe alternative is a rat or a mousetrap. It is a humane method and one can get the rodents far away from their place after they are trapped. For larger rodents that one finds difficulty in trapping or moving away from one’s premises, it is best to call in the pest control authorities.
